Product Description

What if God is closer than you think and humbler than you imagine?

Deep inside each one of us is a deep empty space. We work and strive with great energy toward ideals and objectives that, in the quiet of the night, when we are alone with our thoughts, we know will never fill that space. This human chafing point is universal and although we become quite accomplished at hiding it, it never leaves us. It is always there, under the surface, this struggle to figure out who we are supposed to be as humans, with each other and with God.

It is this most basic human struggle that author Phil Needham addresses in When God Becomes Small. This beautiful, profound book looks with clarity and compassion at our human misconceptions of God and of ourselves.

We seem naturally obsessed with more, bigger, and we despise what is small, or less.

We make God out to be something God is not, we misunderstand the greatness of God, and see God as gigantic, distant, remote.

At the same time, we make ourselves out to be smaller than we are, and our lives less significant than they are. We let ourselves off the hook, so that we can downgrade our self-expectations.

 But Phil Needham does not leave us there. As the book unfolds we see how God saves us from these misconceptions. And we learn how we might follow God to the freedom of becoming small.

The defining miracle of God’s greatness is the miracle of God becoming small. This miracle opens the door for us to know God and to experience fullness of life.

From the author: "I am inviting you to consider the truth of God we rarely hear told.  It is the surprising truth of his lowliness.  It is God’s shocking humility."
