In his book “Yawning at Tigers,” author Drew Dyck challenges us to not settle for the comfortable and commonplace and be a part of a greater adventure in following the mysterious, majestic, and dangerous God! “In our attempt to make the message palatable,” we have made God small. We domesticate the divine and thereby remove the reverence, the power, and the awe. Drew shares an incredible analogy by talking about the ocean. The ocean is beautiful and brings peace and consternation because it is powerful, vast, and dangerous. When we serve a God who is anything less than majestic, we are missing out. We become bored.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 140020545X, Paperback)

“A needed corrective to self-indulgent Christianity.” Philip Yancey

“A stirring challenge.” Lee Strobel

“A strong antidote against a domesticated God.” Matthew Lee Anderson

When was the last time you were overawed 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In our shallow, self-centered age, things like truth and reverence might seem outdated, lost. Yet we’re restless. And our failed attempts to ease our unrest point to an ancient ache for an experience of the holy.

Drew Dyck makes a compelling case that what we seek awaits us in the untamed God of Scripture—a God who is dangerous yet accessible, mysterious yet powerfully present. He is a God who beckons us to see him with a fresh, unfiltered gaze.

Yawning at Tigers takes us past domesticated Christianity, into the wilds where God’s raw majesty, love, and power become more real and transformative than we could ever imagine.
