God is in and around us

Stephen Ryan’s new book, So That’s What God Looks Like!, ($14.99, paperback, 9781545613436; $7.99, e-book, 9781545614327) presents readers with two starkly different world views; that of renowned physicist and atheist Stephen Hawking; no God, no eternal consequences for right and wrong, and no hope of eternal life; everything, even creation, is pure chance. Ryan presents a world created and sustained by a loving God, the source of all being, where good and evil effect our eternal lives. Despair contrasted with great trust in God. As he shares with us his life stories - uplifting, poignant, humorous and sad - Ryan reveals God’s attentive care through the years, a powerful testimony of a loving God. This fascinating story is the very antithesis of Hawking’s bleak, agnostic views. While Hawking, to his own peril, is rejecting God, Ryan shows us that God is not rejecting Hawking.
Ryan’s “So That’s What God Looks Like!” is truly a personal, theological, and loving homage to his benevolent Creator; less a scientific tome. “God is in and around us…” states the author, ‘…not ‘far away’, but incredibly intimate. As you recognize God’s action, feel God’s presence, and tune out the noise, your life will change. You’ll live your day, trials and triumphs, more attuned to God’s loving presence after reading this book.” International missionary/author Todd Scott (Quenching the Soul’s Thirst) writes, “In his book “So That’s What God Looks Like!”, Stephen has used this awesome gift to help me recognize more clearly the presence of God in my own life, amidst the noise and chaos, the suffering and pain, the hustle and bustle of our ‘modern age’.
One of 11 siblings, Stephen Ryan is a multi-lingual editor, spiritual director, and retreat leader. He was a Sgt./E5, US Army Signal Intelligence, and an international missionary for twenty-three years, serving in over twenty countries, including Ukraine, Russia, India and Great Britain.
