We know we are made for more. We know something is wrong. We know it needs to be set right again. Three tenets of a creed we all share, drawing us closer to a God we all know. Every person is on a spiritual journey---and deep within, each of us suspects there is something more. We find hints of what we seek in the stories we tell, the wonders we create, and the religions we profess. Inklings of God explores the ways we find meaning in the joys and pains of everyday life, offering glimpses of someone who is with us in our searching, who is searching for us in return. Author Kurt Bruner says, 'I want us to feel our way together along the cracks of life in order to discover the unknown God who constantly drops hints all around us, and to explore what our common encounters suggest about our common creed. The hints I'll give grow out of those times I have paused after stumbling---unexpected moments when the heart invites us closer to God.' Bruner takes a fresh, provocative approach to some of the most difficult questions of human experience: How can a good God allow suffering? Why is there evil in the world? Do all religions lead to the same God? He finds answers to these burning questions in such unexpected places as laughter, music, sex, sorrow, art, science, beauty and even death. Through it all, he shows how each moment offers an opportunity for intimate encounters with a God who is never far away. Moving beyond the comfortable assumptions of canned religion, Bruner writes for everyone desperate to scratch their spiritual itch, helping all of us recognize and heed the inklings of God in our everyday experiences. Inklings of God traces every clue to its source to discover what we've suspected: the finger behind the fingerprints, the author behind the story, and the artist behind the masterpiece called life.
