Krish Kandiah's work with refugees and vulnerable children is inspirational. He and his wife Miriam model their teaching on Christian hospitality by welcoming adopted and foster children into their home. We have much to learn from their example.
We think we know God but Kandiah wants us to come to see God as a stranger, someone we haven't got taped, and find our lives turned upside down as a result.
In his new book God is Stranger, Krish Kandiah turns the tables on what we think we know about God.
Kandiah challenges us to recognise that having met the God who is a stranger we should look out for God in the stranger... This is a book which made me think, which helped me see things a little differently, to link the things that I know in my head with the things that I feel in my heart.
[Krish Kandiah] shows us that God often shows up when and where we least expect him to, and brings us a powerful challenge.
The author's own commitment to Scripture and his personal engagement with the issues require us to listen with care... You must read this book and hear what God is saying to the churches in our day.
Drawing on personal experience, Kandiah asks searching questions about the appearance of God in lives.
This book makes challenging reading for anyone concerned to live out the radical demands of the gospel.
If God isn't constantly surprising us then something is amiss. He's always more faithful than we realise, more challenging than we understand, more mysterious than we'd like and closer than we think. Krish draws us into the Scripture and points us to the God who walks beside us and yet is infinitely beyond us. I highly recommend the adventure!
