Rumors of God, by Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson
This book revolves around the words on the prophet Habakkuk, “LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.”
When compared with Biblical times, it is easy to feel as though God isn’t as visible in our society now as He once was. But is God to blame for this? No! One of my favourite quotes in this book is one from Gary Haugen: “God has a plan to help bring justice into the world. And is plan is us.”
This book is chock-full of appalling statistics about the world we live in. For example, experts say that the amount of money Americans spend each year on pizza would be more than enough to feed the world for a year. Wow.
There are several encouraging and inspiring examples of one person or small group of people who have a vision for God, and it brought millions to know Christ. We can make a difference.
Though I found this book a bit harder to read, it wasn’t because the book was boring or uninteresting; it’s that there is just so much information in the book that I’ll have to read it a few times to really get a grasp of it all. If you feel discouraged that God isn’t as visible in our society as you had hopes for, I would recommend this book to you.
