About the Book    About the Author

In 2008, I graduated from a Christian liberal arts college with a degree in Spiritual Formation. It was in the same year I wanted to "go on a break" from God because of some major "issues" I had with God and his expectations of "Christians." Thankfully, I stuck around and he taught me a lot about his heart, lifting me up to bring clarity to my distorted view. Using personal stories, the Bible, along with other writers' quotes; there is a collision of paradigms, worldviews, and presuppositions in an effort to usurp--if only for a moment--your (the reader's) perspective of lofty things. Hoping to spur you on to investigate and experience the height, width, and depth of God's love, purpose, and intention for His created people. Submitting for your consideration minute fractions of snapshot tweet-lengthed ideas concerning God as Father, creation and its purpose, covenant relationship, sin's interruption, Jesus' faithfulness, our faith, & the many faces of love.

There is a lot covered in the brevity of the text. There is an invitation to interact with the text and the author, the goal is to lend thoughtful and gracious dialogue to the metanarrative conversation.

Each chapter answers in part the following questions: Who is God? Who is Jesus? What was the purpose of creation? What's my purpose for being alive? When does our "journey/pilgrimage" begin? What is sin? What is covenant? What happened with the flood? What is faith? What is love? How do we understand sex as a spiritual interaction?

Join the conversation as we pursue to elevate and know the God in the Heavens.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon Reviews:

"Nolan Recker asks honest and thought provoking questions question many of us have as we walk the Christian life. His life experiences have
informed his personal views of many basic and not-so-basic Godly ideas
which in turn prompts the reader to explore these issues in our own
lives." -Classicfan7

"This book has challenged me in such a wonderful way! I was able to learn so much about myself and about who God is by having an easy
conversation with this author!" -Swisc

"Reading this book is like being in a conversation with the author. It is refreshing and unique. Thought provoking, yet an easy read." -A. Glenn
