By Carey Walsh

Why does God need to be so exasperatingly silent? Why cannot we see him at the very least lengthy adequate to allay doubt? How does one develop deeper in love with God opposed to the cultural currents of disdain and antagonism?

Chasing Mystery is an exploration into how the Bible negotiates the presence and shortage of God within the hopes of forging a course in occasions the place absences frequently look extra urgent than presences. Amid the present skepticism and restlessness, says Walsh, we needs to relearn the ability of belief in interpreting Scripture. the purpose is to event God via holy writing.

Walsh bargains a piece in biblical theology that explores the liveliness of the God of the Bible. She insists that the pages of the Bible don't easily describe divine presence; they evoke it within the means of examining. no longer forever, by no means predictably, yet sufficient to warrant a belief. Her aim is to bolster the heart's interpreting competency as a way to facilitate our stumble upon with God.
