This book arises out of the belief that people sense there to be a far greater reality to our portrayal of God and the Christian life than that which we have grasped. It appears evident that God’s intentions for us are far more expansive and profoundly more majestic than what we’ve embraced and subsequently live out in our lives. Something inestimably more is ours if we are relentless enough to discover it, persistent enough to find ways to intentionally seize it, and then tenacious enough to deeply incorporate it into the very fabric our lives. This book is written for those who thirst to do exactly that.
Reviews for An Intimate Collision: Encounters with Life and Jesus
“The subtitle to “An Intimate Collision” reads “Encounters with Life and Jesus”. These encounters shine throughout the book. 2000 year old stories come to vivid life with the dust, sounds, and joy of each encounter with the Son of God. Never have the stories been more real to me. I could see, hear, and taste what happened. Craig Lounsbrough brought them to life so that you were there – part of the action and part of the reason Jesus chose to do what He did.”
– Joshua U. – Washington
“An Intimate Collision by Craig Lounsbrough tells poignant, soul-touching stories of real people who live in very real pain and hopelessness. But in that pain, Craig dramatically tells the story of the real Jesus, the Master incredibly sensitive to pain and powerfully compassionate to those who bear that pain. As a counselor himself, Craig demonstrates wonderfully sensitivity to hurting people. His stories of people, and the people Jesus cares for are told in incredible, beautiful detail. The prose is almost poetic in its vivid color and emotion. If you’re looking for help connecting life’s collisions to an intimate collision with Jesus, you must engage with this book. It’s not just to read it. It’s to engage with it, and thus to engage with Jesus.”
