A powerful attraction exists in the universe—an attraction between the Creator of the universe and the creation whom He loves. A positive, Christian "alternative" to Rhonda Byrne's The Secret, The Secret Things of God reveals twenty age-old secrets of God—some of which have been true since before Creation and others that were revealed 2000 years ago when the Creator of the Universe became human.
Dr. Henry Cloud brings his insights as both a psychologist and as a student of spiritual life to explore the eternal principles in the universe that govern listeners' goals, desires, relationships, and lives. These same truths, if activated in people's lives, are guaranteed to fill them with security, hope, and relationship with the eternal Creator. Cloud also reveals how these truths, found in Judaeo-Christian teachings, intersect and interface with the spiritual longings expressed in the principles found in The Secret and similar works. Recognizing and applauding the search for truth and a connection with a power beyond the human, Cloud leads listeners into relationship with a God who loves them and has given all to save them.
Many Christians have believed in God all their lives and claim Jesus as their Savior, but continue to live a joyless, defeated life. They are no better able to weather the inevitable pains of life than those who claim no faith at all. The secret to true joy, inner peace, sustaining hope, powerful purpose, and more is locked in their minds but has not been activated in their hearts and lives. The Secret Things of God reveals twenty profoundly simple secrets and gently guides listeners in how to unlock the power of these truths and activate them in their lives.
The title is based on the Bible passage, 1 Corinthians 4:1-2: "Regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.
