Synopsis

A bold faith requires a big God. How big is your God? In other words, what limits have you placed upon God in your life? If your experience of the Divine has become static and predictable, or if you have a relationship with God that is small and confined, Paul Coutinho invites you to believe that God is bigger much bigger! How Big Is Your God? is Coutinho's challenge to every person to grow deeper and stronger in his or her faith by embracing a God whose love truly knows no bounds. To help us rethink our limited ideas of God, Coutinho, a Jesuit and a native of India, introduces us to his Hindu friends who put him on the path to mysticism; to his Buddhist teachers who broke open his limited views of the Divine; to Viktor Frankl, Desmond Tutu, and other enlightened guides who led him to a far more meaningful spiritual life; and to St. Ignatius of Loyola, whose Spiritual Exercises continue to shape his reflection and prayer life.As Fr. Coutinho encourages us to open our hearts and minds so that we can personally experience the infinite breadth of God, we begin to see that an ever-deepening relationship with the Divine is the true purpose of religion.Deepen your experience of God by moving from religion to relationship Do you have a relationship with God, or do you just have a religion? Do you know God, or do you just know about God? Do you believe in a God without limits, or have you placed God in a box and sealed the lid? In How Big Is Your God? Indian Jesuit priest Paul Coutinho asks each of us to carefully consider questions such as these. With his warm sense of humor and a talent for telling just the right story to drive home a point, Coutinho guides us to reconsider who God is and how we can have fellowship with God beyond anything we have imagined. The immensely powerful yet eminently readable wisdom in How Big Is Your God? will move us past religion as we know it and toward a relationship with God that can change the way we think, love, and live!"Coutinho draws on Eastern religious traditions, blending them with his own Catholic practice to challenge and deepen readers' understandings of God."Publishers Weekly "If you have ever suspected that 'religion' is way too small acontainer for the mystery we call God, this book is for you!"Margaret Silf, author of Inner Compass "Paul Coutinho, SJ, challenges and delights the reader in his ever provocative ways of inviting us into our religious experience."David L. Fleming, SJauthor of Draw Me into Your Friendship
