Life seems to conspire against us, filling our days with busyness. Maybe we do it to ourselves out of need or fear, but the result is often the same—we become surface people, skating on the reflection pond without having or taking time to find depth of character. We live from event to event, from crisis to crisis, hoping no one will check our hearts for compassion and our minds for depth.

In Being a Believer in an Unbelieving World, Wayne Brouwer urges us to listen more closely to the wisdom of Jesus and linger long enough before the mirror of the gospel to find the true shape of our selves. Then, under the gentle prodding of the One who cares, we can take new steps toward living life the way it was intended.

About the Author:

Wayne Brouwer, Ph.D., is senior pastor of Harderwyk Church in Holland, Michigan, where he lives with his wife and three children.

In June 1999, Wayne became the youngest elected president of the Christian Reformed Church Synod.

Review:

"There is a beguiling simplicity about this wonderful book. The fresh and elegant prose brings a bright clarity to the scriptural wisdom Brower teaches."
—Max DePree, author of Leadership is an Art and Leadership Jazz

"Tales, anecdotes, character sketches, biblical insight, and common sense as straight as a post—it's all here in Wayne Brouwer's rich new book. Brouwer brings plenty of mind to his writing, but also plenty of love. The result is a rare varietal that blends grace and truth."
—Cornelius Plantiga Jr., Dean of Chapel, Calvin College -- Review
