Description

"A needed corrective to self-indulgent Christianity." Philip Yancey

"A stirring challenge." Lee Strobel

"A strong antidote against a domesticated God." Matthew Lee Anderson

When was the last time you were overawed by God's majesty? Have you ever stood in stunned silence at his holiness and power?

In our shallow, self-centered age, things like truth and reverence might seem outdated, lost. Yet we're restless. And our failed attempts to ease our unrest point to an ancient ache for an experience of the holy.

Drew Dyck makes a compelling case that what we seek awaits us in the untamed God of Scripture--a God who is dangerous yet accessible, mysterious yet powerfully present. He is a God who beckons us to see him with a fresh, unfiltered gaze.

Yawning at Tigers takes us past domesticated Christianity, into the wilds where God's raw majesty, love, and power become more real and transformative than we could ever imagine.
