Review: Yawning at Tigers: You Can’t Tame God So Stop Trying by Drew Dyck

OK.  I admit I chose this book because of the title.  I had to find out how this author would pull off mixing tigers, yawning, and God.  I am here to say that he succeeded and succeeded well.  Part 1: Tiger Territory and Part 2: Divine Embrace work together to balance our perspectives of God.  I really thought my own balance was fine, but discovered it needed a bit of tweaking.  And that is what this book is about and does.  Gently and without needing a dictionary. 

The discussion guide is one of the best I’ve seen lately.  It is light enough to work for a group, but deep enough to provide some place to start serious considerations.  Well done there, and combined with the reading a book can change perspectives or rebalance them for nearly anyone.  Mature believer or the new believer.

I obviously recommend this book to you.  

This book was provided by the publisher in return for a review.
