From the Back Cover

Have you ever seen God in a hospital bill? How about in the story of Cinderella? Maybe in your kid’s bike ride? Or that billboard you saw along the highway?

We’d all surely recognize God’s hand if He changed water to wine at our wedding or raised our brother from the dead. But in the midst of undramatic everyday life, God is just as active and startling. He’s there when we deal with loneliness, struggle with loyalty, or worry how the culture has impacted our kids.

Using experiences and events from lives just like yours, “Doc” Hensley pulls back the curtain to reveal an extraordinary God—doing so much more than meets the eye.

More Than Meets the Eye offers memorable illustrations, thoughtful questions, and encouraging Scriptures to start or end each day. His years of teaching and fathering fill Dr. Hensley's words with compassion and conviction, suitable for any readers who are looking for more in their walk with God.”
