Many of us live out flat, marginalized and ineffectual Christian lives. We fall achingly short of intimately connecting with and deeply interjecting the truths of scripture into the everyday realities of our lives as we live them out amidst the incessant demands and tangled complexities of the 21st century. We therefore miss a sweeping and torrential infusion of what God intends for our lives. Because we miss it, we are left abysmally poorer when that need not be the case. An Intimate Collision arises out of the belief that people sense there is a far greater reality to our portrayal of God and the Christian life than that which we have grasped.

Review:

"Intimate Collision is a great book in which Mr. Lounsbrough takes us through his work as a Christian psychotherapist and brings home that for meaning and purpose to come into our lives and to have strength in times of illness, death, and need we need a firm foundation in the Gospel." - Temenos Catholic Worker

"[An Intimate Collision] is a beautiful read. This author's command of language and artful skill at putting scenery, emotions and concepts on the written page are worthy of some of the great masters. If you are looking for a book that has the ability to transport you to another place, to experience more than just read, maybe even feel as you've rarely felt before, this is the book for you." - Phillip Pennington

"Craig Lounsbrough...shares real stories of real people-well told, easy to read, grounded in Scripture, about a faith that matters for everyday living...reading this book makes me want to get my journal and attend to my own intimate collision with God." - April Yamasaki

"In 'An Intimate Collision,' Lounsbrough has taken basic real life stories and has beautifully drawn connections into scripture. Through these stories one is brought into an understanding that the divine is always at work "colliding" with us in our daily lives. It is truly inspirational and a great read. Definitely worth your time." - wordpress.com

"The Bible is reality, not just stories.  An Intimate Collision depicts extraordinary people in modern day situations and mirrors them into scripture as Jesus intimately encountered life. This book grabs the reader and places him in the situations too.  Written in a devotional format, each chapter encourages deep self-examination and contemplation."- Sarah Stanfield
