Editorial Reviews

Review

"In The Grand Paradox, Ken Wytsma talks about actual faith, not idealized faith. The faith of which he speaks is not only for our messy world but also of our messy world--while yet trusting and revealing God. Thoroughly honest, never evasive, free of clichés, deeply Christian, encouraging rather than scolding in its tone, it is the most perceptive and helpful discussion of faith that I know of."
--NICHOLAS WOLTERSTORFF, Noah Porter Professor Emeritus of Philosophical Theology, Yale University, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, University of Virginia


"Grounded in examples from scripture and life experiences, his honest exploration of the questions and doubts Christians have speaks to both newer believers who might not fully understand their faith, and also to longtime followers who have gotten off track or are looking to understand why they believe." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

From the Inside Flap

THE PARADOX OF LIVING IN A BROKEN WORLD can grab our attention dramatically as we go through life, experiencing disappointment, enduring tragedy, and surviving disaster. We're too wise and too jaded for cheap answers, promises of The American Dream, and religious quick fixes--they don't really satisfy us. Instead, they leave us desperate for something solid, hoping for a more sure foundation upon which to build our lives. Our hope can't simply be in controlling our present circumstances; if we are going to live lives of meaning and purpose, we're going to have to learn how to embrace The Grand Paradox: Life is messy and God is mysterious, but yet there is a way to follow Christ, develop a relationship with God, and pursue the happiness and joy we all long to experience.
