Deepen your experience of God by moving from religion to relationship.
Paul Coutinho, SJ, is an Indian Jesuit priest with a genial sense of humor and a penchant for asking deeply thought-provoking spiritual questions: Do you have a real relationship with God, or do you just have a religion? Do you know God, or do you just know about God? Do you worry about the smallest things, or do you trust God to help you through even the biggest things? Have you ever considered believing in a God without limits, a God powerful enough to enable you to think, love, and live differently?
In How Big Is Your God? Fr. Coutinho challenges us to grow stronger and deeper in our faith by embracing a God whose love knows no bounds. To help us on our way, Coutinho introduces us to his Hindu friends who put him on the path to mysticism; to his Buddhist teachers who broke open his limited views of the divine; to Viktor Frankl, Desmond Tutu, and other enlightened guides who led him to a far more meaningful spiritual life; and to St. Ignatius of Loyola, whose Spiritual Exercises continue to shape his reflection and prayer life.
Each short chapter in this book will draw readers with an open mind and a longing heart into a closer relationship with God and will encourage them to experience the infinite breadth of God in a deeply personal way.
God truly loves us as humans and asks only for our love of him in return.
Allowing God to be in our lives simplifies all aspects of ones life and brings into our being the love and understanding He gives us.
The author writes like he is actually talking to you and shares personal and spiritual stories.
