Format: Hardcover
With her long history in Christian ministry, Nancy Ortberg's thoughts are fresh and freeing to those of us who basically need a break from Christian-ese. She is encouraging in her desire to grow deeper in her relationship with Christ, and point out those small God-moments that happen in the very ordinary every day occurences of life. This is a great devotional read for leaders.

We read this in our book club and it was a great read. Very easy to read, almost like she is blogging or having a conversation with you. Her stories are interesting and the best part of the book.
Definitely made me see being a Christian in a different light!!! Just the ending was a bit blah, needed a fireworks ending, that's why I didn't give it 5 stars.

My Life Feb. 21 2008
By Trudi Barnes - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wonder how Nancy got inside my head to know exactly what I was going through. If you have ever felt like you were not connecting with God, this book will remind you that we are NEVER NOT connected to Him. I will never again look at a sunset, the faces of my children, a mountain range or the stars the same way. Amazing book. This is a MUST read for everyone!

Looking for God Feb. 15 2008
By Lisa Lindquist - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of those can't-put-it-down, almost-caused-a-car-accident-by-driving-and-reading books. Clearly written by a straight shooter with a sense of humor. It's Christianity that I can do and want to do; not to become somebody else but a description of how God can work with me and the reality of my life. I wish I had this when my kids were toddlers and could have saved my self from a lot of guilt. I will give it to all of my friends: male and female, Christian and not-so-much.

loved this book April 3 2008
By Amy Arnold - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Looking for God" grabbed me, and I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. However, it's not just a quick read. It's a well of deep truths about the wonder of God and the sometimes surprising ways that he reveals himself to us. While humor and hope permeate Nancy Ortberg's stories, my favorite chapters are 11 & 16 - about finding God in our failures and hearing his voice in the midst of our longings, aches and pains. This is real truth for real people.

Tattoos, tofu and pronouns March 14 2008
By Angela - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was drawn to this book after my friend Leanne gave me the heads up. Quickly thereafter I logged onto my hubby's amazon account and had Looking for God delivered to my front step pronto!

Nancy opens up and shares some of those thoughts we all have from time to time, but we dare never utter them...however she is bold enough to say it...

I love the idea of the Mistake Journal (see pg 154). That alone is worth the $15 bucks. But Nancy keeps on sharing her experiences, gently opening her reader's eyes to a new, more expansive, and more reciprocal view of (re) discovering the God who created us, loves us, and who will never turn his back to matter what. God uses broken people. And Nancy uses her stories to help her readers realize that we all struggle with our understanding of God, but that he is there, all day, every day, but sometimes we just didn't have our glasses on!

Not only is this book funny and engaging, but it seemed to communicate exactly what I needed to hear at this moment in time! I loved it.
