About The Book

The God They Never Knew is about knowing God and having a relationship with him

It has been said that the process of getting to know another person—and even the process of falling in love—depends, to a considerable extent, on listening to what the other person says and asking questions to find out what he feels and thinks. Christianity is in its naked essence a relationship. Accordingly, you would be inclined to think that this type of interpersonal exploration and discovery would he a natural pursuit of Christians in quest of “eternal love.”

Perhaps we ought to ask ourselves just what it is we seek—eternal life or eternal love. After all, what is eternal life without an eternal love? C. S. Lewis, referring to immortality, wrote, “For my own part I have never seen how preoccupation with that subject at the onset could fail to corrupt the whole thing.”[1]C.S. Lewis, Surprised By Joy, Harcourt, Brace & World Yet many Christians today are pursuing immortality rather than relationship. The majority, no doubt, are consciously unaware of such an end. And yet for those who conclude that through- out this life God must remain an unfathomable enigma, immortality is the only viable pursuit.
