Flap copy

Nancy Ortberg on "LookingforGod" We get so prescriptive with the spiritual life. We prepackage it, duplicate it, mass-produce it, insist upon it, and brag about it. We make it a formula. As a result, we tend to see God from such a narrow perspective. We box God up and compartmentalize Him into thirty minutes each morning. But in reality, He is waiting for us to realize that He invades all the parts of our days . . . if only we would just pay attention. That is what "LookingforGod" is all about. * * * In her long-awaited debut title, Nancy Ortberg will inspire you to break away from the bland, formulaic approach to Christianity and embrace the often unexpected, at times unnerving, but always extraordinary power of God's grace. As you journey with Nancy, you'll come to discover God in places you would have never dreamed of looking, and you'll experience faith on a deeper level than you ever imagined possible!

Back cover copy

Advance praise for Nancy Ortberg's "LookingforGod" "Wow. Whether you're a theologian, a regular churchgoer, a nominal Christian, or just curious about this Jesus guy everyone is talking about, "Looking for God" will overwhelm you. It is remarkably profound, poignant, and insightful, and written with an uncommon and inspired sense of joy. I couldn't stop reading it. Amazing."
Patrick Lencioni, bestselling author of "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" "For years, Nancy has been leading seekers to a relationship with God. In this book, not only does she do that, but she also finds the seeker in all of us believers too, and leads us to finding more of Him. I recommend it!"
Dr. Henry Cloud, bestselling author of "Boundaries" "Nancy Ortberg's winsome reflections on the life of faith-and the struggles that inevitably attend that life-have been, simply, balm for me. I know I will return to this book."
Lauren F. Winner, author of "Girl Meets God" and "Real Sex." "Nancy Ortberg shows her beautiful storytelling ability in these pages. Her stories range from funny to poignant and from gritty to tender as they explore the spirituality of elation, depression, normalcy, regret, sacrifice, teamwork, creativity, and more. Each story is like a clue in a quest for God, and through them, readers can experience what Nancy calls 'reconversion.'"
Brian McLaren, author/speaker (brianmclaren.net) "Nancy Ortberg is not like Most-of-Us. At least she's not like the Most-of-Us that experts tell us we are supposed to be. Because she's not like Most-of-Us, she's got something to say to All-of-Us, and it is this: Most of us are not like Most-of-Us and it's okay not to be like Most-of-Us. Nancy's turned her wit and wisdom and rugged honesty into a new level of authenticity. Time passed me by as I read this book."
Scot McKnight, Ph.D., author of "The Jesus Creed"
