Yawning at Tigers: You Can’t Tame God, So Stop Trying
By Drew Dyck / Thomas Nelson
Is your deity domesticated—a malleable source of love and good feelings? If you’re hungry for more than a simple and sedate spiritual life, Dyck says it’s time to chart a course away from the “safe” harbor of sanitized, predictable religion and discover just how “dangerous” God’s majesty, love, and power really are! 240 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Yawning At Tigers presents a fuller perspective of who is God. It points out how the majority of people only look at one or two aspects of God’s character. Basically explaining how people have brought God closer to our own level, rather than the level God is actually at. Therefore resulting in God not receiving the true and full reverence and fear that is due Him.
I discovered many truths in Yawning At Tigers. It allowed me to take a closer look at the holiness and righteousness of God. There are two areas which spoke to me in this book. One area involves the questions which should be asked upon someone feeling led to Christ, in order to see if their heart is truly in it. The other area involves a section on God’s love which reminded me of the times in my life when I was trying many things to fill the empty puzzle piece space within me. The only thing I did end up finding which could truly fill that space was Jesus Christ.
I found it to be hard to put Yawning At Tigers down each time I picked it up. There are Biblical events and references made throughout the book, supporting and explaining the message being presented. I recommend this book to all.
