Feeling Like God : The Emotional Side of Discipleship - And Why You Can't Fully Follow Jesus Without It
If you've ever been told that "emotions are unreliable," you may wonder what your innermost feelings have to do with your Christian walk. But in Feeling Like God, Chris Tiegreen explains that no matter how much objective truth we've learned, we can't really relate to God unless we know how he feels. As humans made in God's image, we experience nearly the full range of emotions that our Creator does. And whenever the Holy Spirit shows up in Scripture, it always provokes an emotional response, proving that God himself passionately desires to connect with us on an emotional level. Follow Chris Tiegreen beyond an impersonal, distant faith--and learn what it is to feel like God.

You've been told not to trust your emotions- to rely on what you know rather than what you "feel." Yet you were created in the image of God, which means that many of your feelings are echoes of his own. Whether you feel empty and far away from God or struggle with feelings so strong that they threaten to overwhelm you, you need to understand and embrace your own emotional bond with the Father. It's the only way to fully share your heart with his Son. In "Feeling like God, " Chris Tiegreen traces the character of God throughout Scripture, showing how God reveals himself as a deeply emotional being who longs to connect closely with you. When men and women like Abraham, Hannah, David, and Paul opened their hearts to him, their lives were radically transformed. Discover how your emotions are a bridge drawing you closer to your Savior-and you'll experience the passion of feeling like God does.
