A God Named Desire
This product qualifies towards the free shipping offer.
Science can’t explain why, but the deepest human desire is to love and be loved. Is it possible that we are beings in need of giving and receiving love because we were made in the image of a loving God?
We are creatures of intense desire. We emerge from the womb longing for touch and affection. Desire pulsates within us every waking moment of our lives. Our hearts are fueled by hungry yearnings for connection, for relationship, for a sense of belonging. We plunge into life, giving ourselves away to him or her, to this or that, drinking in every promise of fulfillment. And yet, we always emerge from the quest for love still feeling a persistent and insatiable desire for something more. A God Named Desire is about that something more. There are some books that speak with an unusual level of clarity to the deepest issues that press the human heart. This is one of those rare books. You will never see God, or yourself, the same after the insights of A God Named Desire are introduced into your mind.
"A God Named Desire is the best book I have read on the nature of God. Ty Gibson starts with the needs of fallen humans, they are self centred and need love. But self centred love does not satisfy. He then concisely paints a picture of God’s continual energetic love. This love is other centred. Drawing insights from human thought leaders, personal experience and Scripture each chapter gives a perspective of God’s love that opens the mind and moves the heart. Gibson’s succinct style will challenge someone seeking God and someone who has known God for ages. This is a brilliant and heart warming read."
