Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

When was the last time you were over-awed by God’s majesty? Have you ever stood in stunned silence at His holiness and power? In our shallow, self-centered age, things like truth and reverence might seem outdated and lost. Yet…we’re restless. Our failed attempts to ease our unrest point to an ancient ache for an experience of the holy. In Friday’s encore Mid-Morning, Drew Dyck, author of Yawning at Tigers (Thomas Nelston, ISBN# 978-1-4002-0545-5) makes a compelling case that what we seek awaits us in the untamed God of Scripture…a God who is mysterious, yet powerfully present. His raw majesty, love, and power become more real and transformative than we could ever imagine.
