Caught Off Guard: Encounters with the Unexpected God

In his book author William P. Smith bridges the chasm between the heart and the head. Where is the reality of God in the middle of careers and groceries? Why are so many believers frustrated with the enormous gap between what they know about God and how they actually live?In Caught Off Guard, author William P. Smith graciously addresses these seekers who have become dissatisfied with merely “talking theology” and instead yearn to taste and experience the “real thing”, a God who longs for relationship with them. With real stories from today and biblical times, Smith demonstrates surprising and often unnoticed attributes of a loving and purposeful God by proving:

  • How God draws near to the radically undeserving
  • How God responds to people who have feeble faith or even active doubt
  • How God will help you as you seek to live a righteous life
  • How God changes the people around you by radically transforming your heart, mind and soul

In Caught Off Guard, Smith draws an irresistible picture of the heart of God that shatters conventional wisdom, remains true to biblical principles and invites people to reconsider a deeper trust in our uncontrollable, loving God.
