Thrashing About With God

Full Product Description

  • Struggling to find authentic faith?
  • This book explores what an honest journey to God can look like
  • You'll be reassured that even when struggling, you can still find God

In Thrashing About With God, artist and author Mandy Steward wants to reassure you that God isn’t as worried about some of her hangups as you might have been taught.

Her thoughts are beautiful, especially the ideas of light and dark that she returns to several times as she finds there are no limits for God who is willing to thrash about with her no matter her questions or struggles or doubts.

If you’re tired of trying to find ‘right answers’ for others when your own well has gone dry, or exhausted by religiously giving and sacrificing only to find you have nothing spiritual left to feed yourself, then in this story of a search for spiritual fulfillment and peace you’ll recognise Mandy Steward’s "messy life".

Struggling with the expectations that are placed on Christians by the church and society, she questions the beliefs that she was taught as a child and learns how to put aside the guilt, doubt and fear in her quest to balance her roles as a Christian, wife, mother and artist.

Ms. Steward has written a heartfelt, thoughtful account of her spiritual and emotional journey over the past several years. She questions almost everything about her life. She comes to the realization that there is nothing wrong with questioning because it is the way a person grows.

In the style of Emily Freeman’s Good Girl, and Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts, Mandy Steward set out in pursuit of the big ‘what-if?’: What if we simply live out our own story, even if it doesn’t look as others say it should? 

Thrashing About With God by Mandy Steward was published by David C Cook in January 2013 and is our 19037th best seller. The ISBN for Thrashing About With God is 9780781408257.

Publisher's Description

From author and speaker Mandy Steward comes a bold, candid look at life and faith, with all the unanswerable questions, messiness, pain, confusion, and beautiful longing for grace that honest hearts face.

It's sometimes gritty, unafraid to explore the edge of a "safe faith". The intense longing for the true freedom in Christ that traditional faith sometimes struggles to allow will resonate with anyone fighting to discover the authentic self God created within.

Those exploring a Christian journey different from what others proscribe or wrestling with the mystery of a God beyond all understanding will find a soul-sister in this powerful, personal story. It's an opportunity for readers to cast off others' expectations and dive head-first into God, letting him redefine them and their faith.

“The good news is that questions lead to understanding and change. This book will inspire women to take a good look at their own situations and see if they are living the life "to the full" that Jesus promises in John 10:10”. - Other Retailer’s Reviewer.

“This is a book without “easy” answers that lets those struggling with faith and searching for more know they are not alone.” - Other Retailer’s Reviewer.
