A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel by Bradley Jersak PDF

By Bradley Jersak

what's God like? poisonous photographs abound: God the punishing pass judgement on, the deadbeat dad, the genie in a bottle—false gods that have to be challenged.
But what if, in its place, God really is totally Christlike? What if His love is extra beneficiant, his move extra strong, and his gospel extra attractive than we’ve dared to visualize? What if our clearest photograph of God is the self-giving, appreciably forgiving, co-suffering Love printed at the move? What if we had 'A extra Christlike God'?

Endorsements:

"This first-class and much-needed booklet confronts
with either open center and extremely good
mind the key hindrances we've got created
for humans of their trip towards God! So
many people are asking, “Why didn’t people
teach us this a long time ago?” i'm so
grateful that Brad Jersak is re-opening the
door that Jesus had already opened 2000
years in the past. it's so extraordinarily unhappy that it was
ever closed."

"With theological integrity and open-hearted
compassion, Brad Jersak creates a beautiful
space for Jesus to problem our perspectives of
God. A breath of fresh and clarifying air."

Author of The Shack

"Brad Jersak has given us a present of greatest
value: a clean imaginative and prescient of God, Christ, the
Cross, Scripture and ourselves. He displays
the infrequent skill to take deep theological
issues and cause them to understandable
to every body. Jersak represents a brand new generation
of Christian theologians whose work
is either desperately wanted and wonderfully
liberating."

Author of We Make the line through Walking

"Brad Jersak has immersed himself in the
company of the negative, the addicted, the
outsiders. he's made up our minds to get better the
essence of the “beautiful” gospel for all
of us. The conspicuous mark that characterizes
every web page of this winsome
witness is that it's a “lived theology.” He
has given attentive aspect to what's in the
theological libraries, yet isn't really content
with that. He has labored it out on the
streets and within the lives of these with
whom he has selected to percentage his existence and
Christlike God witness, a convincingly
beautiful Gospel."
— EUGENE H. PETERSON
Translator of The Message

“'Good souls many will someday be horrified
at the issues they now think of
God.' George MacDonald’s prophecy
has chanced on its achievement in Brad Jersak’s
journey from the ‘volatile ethical monster’
to the face of Jesus’ Father. right here the
ancient tune of sunshine sings us new eyes:
Behold the Lamb, similar to his Father.
A important treasure, precious of serious
reflection."
