Finding God in the Bible Fresh, Witty Approach to Friendship with God from a Popular Author and Filmmaker
The God of the Bible gets happy, angry, sad. We can bless him. He is jealous, giving, patient, protective, loving. He has character traits, a personality. Yet God is often viewed as an absentee landlord, a distant deity, an enigma with a frowning face; and we carry the defeatist expectation that we will never truly know him.
Popular filmmaker Darren Wilson shows from Scripture that this isn't so. Having traveled the world over for his documentaries and witnessed the miraculous more times than he can count, he comes to the Bible with an entirely fresh perspective to show readers how to approach God and how to understand their relationship to--and with--him.
At turns humorous and poignant, Wilson gives readers new understanding of some very familiar stories in the Bible, as well as modern-day stories of divine intervention, to show what these reveal about the character and personality of the Father--and how we can enter into a true, collaborative friendship with our Creator.
