Read full description of the books:My only other exposure to Crabb before reading this one was The Silence of Adam, dealing with men's issues. I thought that one was excellent, presaging such popular works of the 90s as John Eldredge's Wild at Heart without the wild theological tangents of many such works.
I was not prepared for Knowing God. I'm a fan of authors like Phillip Yancey and Brennan Manning, who refuse to stop at the shiny happy surface of Christianity but rather show how hard it really is to learn to know God. Crabb's book stands with the best of those works; it's a hard book to get through. Some passages are relentlessly dark, but there is always the light of God at the end of the tunnel. Crabb's thesis, however, is that few of us ever really want to get to that light, preferring instead to find little ways of amusing ourselves and easing the pain.
Crabb is brutally honest, sharing his own struggles and lack of faith. There is a good deal of "counselor-speak" here, but it's all in the service of the message. It's clear that Crabb is not out to impress anyone with his accomplishments here. The effect is sometimes claustrophobic, but ultimately cathartic.
This is a mature, difficult book, and I hesitate to recommend it to new Christians or those merely interested in learning about the faith. At the same time, this is a message that the Church desperately needs to hear, especially in today's feel-good name-it-and-claim-it culture.
An excellent, life-changing book.
