"You and I were created by God to know him, plain and simple. Every single human being was designed--hard-wired--specifically to be in relationship to God...If we were honest, we would admit that deep down we sense something necessary is missing. We sense a homesickness we can't explain. The truth is, only when the distance between us and God is bridged can we experience the fullness, the homecoming--and the certainty--we earnestly seek."--Tullian Tchividjian
Getting the word out about a new book by Tullian Tchividjian
(Updated 4/10/08 to add links to sound clips)
It was my pleasure to interview Tullian Tchividjian today about his book, Do I Know God? Finding Certainty in Life's Most Important Relationship.
Growing up as the grandson of Billy Graham, Tullian was no stranger to Christianity---he saw it modeled genuinely, with plenty of love and grace, in his own home. But he still went through a period of rebellion before really committing to God.
You can hear a 5 and a half minute excerpt here.
