Winner of a Christianity Today Book Award in 2004, My God and I is a moving spiritual memoir from the pen of Lewis B. Smedes — renowned Christian author, beloved professor, keen theologian and ethicist, extraordinary human being.

Read an excerpt from the book on EerdWord.
David Neff
"The man who taught America how to forgive had many wounds. In My God and I Lew Smedes gives an honest and unvarnished account of the childhood hurts and churchly distortions that challenged him to learn grace, compassion, and forgiveness. . . . He models a perseverance in following God that nearly matches God's own persistence in reaching out to us."
Library Journal
"A popular speaker and religious writer, Smedes died at age 81 before this brief memoir could be published. . . . Contradicting dour stereotypes of his Dutch Reformed tradition, he recalls his life with droll, self-deprecating humor. . . . Recommended for public and church libraries where his many books are popular."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Humbly recounted and gracefully written, this slim volume is a pleasure to read and a poignant valediction from a man who lived long and loved wisdom."
Joan D. Chittister
"Warm, personable, readable, honest. . . . Don't read this book to find out what Smedes believed, gripping (and often charming) as that account is; rather, read it to find out what you believe about God. I love this book."
Richard J. Mouw
"Vintage writing from a man equally at home discussing theology in a seminary classroom and talking about the human need for forgiveness on Oprah."
