Ready to jumpstart your faith? In When God Stops, Dr. Derek Grier dissects the extraordinary God-encounters of eight ordinary men and women in the Bible. The retelling of each biblical account from a new perspective will uncover the answer to the age-old question: What makes God stop and pay attention? The answer is great faith.
Whether it was a man with leprosy, a sick child, or a short tax collector in a tree, they all had one thing in common--a burning desire to get God's attention. Dr. Grier adds to the narrative by sharing the details of his personal pilgrimage. Growing up as a young man, angry at God, looking for an identity, Grier eventually attended college and found the kind of faith that made him feel loved and centered for the first time in his life. But it cost him many friends.
The greatest man who ever caused God to stop was Jesus Himself. The perfect, uninterrupted faith Jesus exhibited as a man--in the face of tremendous rejection and hatred--is the kind of faith that pays the highest price. We now have a Friend in heaven praying on our behalf.
Even the greatest saints in church history have struggled through times of great difficulty. Dr. Grier skillfully reminds us, however, that our compassionate High Priest always has His gentle hand on the pulse of our lives. Don't give up. In His own time, He will respond in glorious ways to those who call upon Him.
When God Stops contains what some call the "Grier secret sauce" a mixture of amazing teaching, personal transparency, humility, and an abiding faith.
This book will help Christians attract the favor of God, embrace personal transformation, and develop their gifts for the greater good.
Call out to God and watch Him stop for you.
