The God of the Bible has an incredibly dynamic personality. He gets happy, angry and sad. He is jealous, patient, loving and protective. Yet that same God is often viewed as an absentee landlord, a distant deity; and we carry the defeatist expectation that we will never truly know Him.

In Finding God in the Bible, popular filmmaker Darren Wilson shows from Scripture that this simply isn't so. Having traveled the world and witnessed countless miracles, Wilson comes to the Bible with a fresh perspective to show readers how to approach God and how to better understand their relationship to-and with-the Father.

At turns humorous and poignant, Wilson gives readers new understanding of familiar stories in the Bible, as well as modern-day stories of divine intervention, to show what they reveal about the character and personality of the Father-and how we can enter into a true, collaborative friendship with our Creator.

"Darren Wilson is one of the most innovative filmmakers and authors of faith today. With his latest book, he takes you on a discovery of God like no one else before.Finding God in the Bible will blow you away!" -DeVon Franklin, senior vice president, Columbia TriStar Pictures

"Darren is a master storyteller who takes us on a journey to discover what friendship with God can really be like. Finding God in the Bible is sure to stir up fresh hunger for God's Word and lead you into deeper intimacy with the One who longs for you to know Him better." -Heidi Baker, Ph.D., founding director, Iris Global; author, Learning to Love

Darren Wilson is founder and CEO of Wanderlust Productions. He has an MFA in screenwriting from Regent University. Wilson is currently the artist-in-residence at Judson University, and he speaks at churches and conferences with increasing regularity. He is the director of the feature films Finger of God, Furious Love, and Father of Lights. Wilson has been interviewed on It's Supernatural! with Sid Roth, and he was recently named one of the "21 Emerging Leaders of Tomorrow's Church" by Charisma magazine. He and his wife, Jenell, have three children and live near Chicago, Illinois. Learn more at
