MEADVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) December 21, 2018
“Understanding and Knowing God”: an incisive guide for tuning in to God’s presence. “Understanding and Knowing God” is the creation of published author Roan Rickard, a philosophy major and IT professional based out of the Lansing, Michigan area, who grew up secular and came to know Christ in his undergraduate years.
Rickard writes, “Though unseen and unheard, the God of the Bible exists. Religious wars and atrocities in the history of the Christian West may cause many to disbelieve in God or see Him in a negative light. God did not cause these horrors, nor is He responsible for these or any other sins of man. God is in fact love as John described Him. Much of popular culture today reviles God based upon spiritually naïve opinions. What of pain, suffering, inequity, and injustices? How can we say that God is love in the face of this reality? Understanding such difficult questions requires development of a spiritually informed perspective.
Consider if the God of the Bible exists, God Almighty, our creator, surely He must be competent to reveal Himself to us. Indeed, He is competent, and biblical scripture reveals God to mankind. Yet God is an elegant personality, and scripture is an elegant message. Knowing Him and comprehending His scripture require effort. The mendicant seeking God and studying scripture must yield heart and mind to renewal, unlearn many biases, learn new and astonishing ideas, and become susceptible to God’s Spirit, informing, retraining, and transforming us. Spiritual objectivity is possible.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Roan Rickard’s new book is a powerful tool for helping readers cut through the philosophical, theological, social, cultural, and spiritual static of modern times and return to the spiritual intimacy of such biblical personalities as Abraham, Moses, David, and Elijah.
With a spiritual discernment honed by an adult lifetime of earnestly seeking God, Rickard now seeks to open people’s eyes to their spiritual inheritance as children of God if they would only acknowledge their Father and step into their birthright.
