Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! Today I speak with international speaker and spoken word poet David Bowden about his wonderful new book When God Isn't There: Why God Is Farther than You Think but Closer than You Dare Imagine (Thomas Nelson, 2016). About the Book: Why does God feel so far away? Why is my worship so empty? Has God left me? David Bowden knows these questions firsthand, having wrestled for years with God’s apparent absence and studying what the Bible says about it. In this new book, Bowden tackles the subject head-on, finding the key to understanding it in the Bible’s depiction of a God who is infinitely far from us, free to move where he wants, but who chooses to come near in the person of Jesus. A resource of encouragement for those who struggle with feeling God’s absence and a wake-up call to those who take God’s presence for granted, When God Isn’t There will forever change your understanding of why God sometimes seems to vanish and how he can be found again. About the Author: David Bowden is an international speaker and performer known best for his craft of spoken word poetry.
