The Grand Paradox: The Messiness of Life, the Mystery of God and the Necessity of Faith by Ken Wytsma

People long for spiritual clarity, says Ken Wytsma. However, “life is messy and God is mysterious.” Wytsma poses questions to help readers sort through this conundrum: “How do we live, grow, flourish, and remain content in the mess? How do we trust, follow, and continue to obey God when He seems to remain elusive?”

By exploring biblical paradoxes, Wytsma points out that we live “between the garden of Eden and the gardens of Zion and the New Jerusalem.” In other words, “our season is the messy middle.”

Insightful, comforting, and challenging,this book calls readers to live more deeply into their faith in God. The chapter about the necessity for Christians, no matter how disillusioned, to be part of a local church is especially compelling. (Thomas Nelson)
