about the book

When was the last time you were overawed by God's majesty?

Have you ever stood in stunned silence at his holiness and power?

In our shallow, self-centered age, things like truth and reverence might seem outdated, lost. Yet we're restless. And our failed attempts to ease our unrest point to an ancient ache for an experience of the holy.

Drew Dyck makes a compelling case that what we seek awaits us in the untamed God of Scripture—a God who is mysterious yet powerfully present, dangerous yet accessible. He is a God who beckons us to see him with a fresh, unfiltered gaze.

Yawning at Tigers takes us past domesticated Christianity, into the wilds where God's raw majesty, love, and power become more real and transformative than we could ever imagine.


Yawning at Tigers is a needed corrective to self-indulgent Christianity. I hope people listen.

Drew Dyck shows that the holiness of God reveals our smallness and God's bigness, our imperfections and God's perfections. We have to be reminded that we are not God before we cry out for God's help. Thank you, Drew, for reminding me of this. I keep forgetting.
