About the Book (from Hachettebookgroup.com)
Robert A. Schuller explores the various ways individuals lose or experience interference with their connection to God. He explains that emotions such as shame, regret, fear, and disappointment can stand in the way of the intimate association God wants with His children.
The good news is that when His people are struggling, God stays close. There are many ways to reestablish a dynamic connection with Him. Schuller calls these "Connection Corrections" and leads readers through identifying communication barriers and how to break them. Each chapter delves into the reasons readers fail to connect with God, how to begin repairing the broken wires, and the life-altering benefits of restoring a positive, power-filled relationship with Him. Readers who feel adrift from God will no find that no barrier is too big to keep them from a close, loving relationship with Him.

Thanks to the Hachette Book Group for sending me a review copy of this book and for sponsoring the giveaway.
I admit that when I first saw the cover of Leaning into God When Life Is Pushing You Away I wasn't too impressed... there is just something about a huge picture of the author taking up the cover of the book that makes me cringe. BUT I was pleasantly surprised by this book. This is one case where we should not judge the book by its cover!
Schuller writes in a very pastoral down-to-earth way. He uses a lot of illustrations to make his points and to keep the readers interest. There is a ton of good stuff in this book. Each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion which would make it a good choice for small group studies as well.
