In our increasingly shallow, self-centered world, quaint notions such as timeless truth and reverence for a holy, awe-inspiring God seem irretrievably lost. They're not.

Many of us have fashioned a domesticated deity--a casual, malleable source of love and good feelings as we define them--and yet our spiritual lives are sedate, dry, devoid of passion or purpose.

Even so, today's postmodern epidemic of rampant restlessness--and our failed, often destructive attempts to ease it--may be evidence of an ancient ache, a deep hunger for transcendence in all of us.

Drew Nathan Dyck makes a compelling case that the "more" we all seek is available by knowing and worshiping the dangerous God of Scripture--a God who is paradoxically untamable and accessible, impossibly mysterious and intimately knowable, above and beyond our physical world yet powerfully present within it. He is a God who beckons us to see him with fresh eyes and let him lead us to a faith that is wild, adventurous, and rooted in a deep understanding of his eternal character.

"Yawning at Tigers" charts a course away from the "safe" harbor of sanitized, predictable Christianity, into deeper waters where, yes, danger lurks, but where God's majesty, love, and power finally become more real and transformative than we could have imagined.
