Aloof by Tony Kriz

Is God truly there? And if so, where is He? Many people find themselves asking these questions as they struggle to discover whether or not God is present. Tony Kriz describes it as feeling as if the divine presence of God is ‘aloof.’ Throughout his book of the same name, Tony seeks to show readers how God might actually show up in their life, even if they don’t always realize it.

Aloof is broken into 4 sections, roughly following theme of story. Each section is strongly supported by Tony recounting parts of his life from when he begins to question his faith to how he grew into a more clear understanding of God. The writing is often raw and honest, and Tony isn’t afraid to show his own struggles and failures. His story and conclusions are not always clear cut, but they are honest.
