What does it take to grab God’s attention?
When God Stops shares the key to living a life that honors the Lord and jumpstarts your faith.
Dr. Derek Grier dissects the extraordinary God-encounters of eight ordinary men and women in the Bible and reveals them as “hidden figures” of the New Testament. The retelling of the biblical accounts from a new perspective will uncover the answer to the age-old question: What makes God stop and pay attention? The answer is faith.
Whether it was a man with leprosy, a sick child, or a short tax collector sitting in a tree, they all had one thing in common - a burning desire to get God’s attention. Dr. Grier adds to the narrative by sharing the details of his personal pilgrimage. Growing up angry at God and looking for an identity, Grier eventually attended college and found the kind of faith that made him feel loved and centered for the first time in his life.
Each chapter includes insightful verse-by-verse biblical teaching, compelling personal testimony, and a section of practical application. A discussion guide is available in the audiobook companion PDF download.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Faith that Gets God’s Attention
I absolutely loved reading this book!
Dr. Grier talks about his life experiences and intertwines the experiences of everyday people in the Bible to get us to see that “God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him”
People who were willing to risk it all and not allow their obstacles, circumstances or situations to stop them from receiving God’s blessings is so inspiring. The woman with the issue of blood was one of my favorite examples! She was willing to risk it ALL in order to receive God’s blessing.
Dr. Grier reminds us that “God is not a respector of persons” - Job 34:19
Don’t disqualify yourself from being good enough to receive God’s blessings because of your circumstances or situation.
I purchased this book for my son and gifted several other people with the Audible (audio) version. Get this book and let it bless you!
