Clinton and Straub are Christian marriage and family therapists who use the Bible and an understanding of grace and wonder in the world to guide readers to a closer relationship with God. They identify four modes that Christians exhibit in relationships with each other and with God: security, avoidance, anxiety, or fear. The authors seek to guide readers through crises of faith and "spiritual rehab," suggesting that any addiction can keep a person from God. It can be something as serious as addiction to pornography, or any other "grand delusions" as innocuous as a fascination with one's career that takes a person's eye away from God. This book will appeal to Christian seekers or anyone facing roadblocks in their faith.

"The Bible emphasizes the fact that human beings are created in 'the image of God.' That makes us different and unique in all of God's creation. Clinton and Straub build the case from both Scripture and scientific research that humans are 'hard-wired' for a relationship with God. While He obviously seeks us, we also are designed to seek Him. 'You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart' (Jeremiah 29:13). Don't miss this dynamic and insightful study!"

Clinton and Straub show us both why we tend to hide from God——and how life brings so much joy and purpose when we finally run out and 'find' Him! Attach yourself to this book as a great way to understand, launch, and build your faith!"
