God is often described as all-knowing, all-living, and all-powerful. But are there other traits sometimes overlooked? What is God really like? Can you put his eternal attributes into words? Ingram's challenging but accessible study examines seven of God's major attributes: goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love, and faithfulness. You'll see God in a whole new light, changing the way you pray, the way you live, and the way you think about the world around you!
In this down-to-earth exercise in evangelical theology, Ingram, a radio show
host and CEO of the Atlanta-based organization Walk Through the Bible, makes
the case that understanding the character of God as He reveals Himself is the
most important task facing new Christians and seasoned believers alike. Noting
that his analysis is meant to be devotional and practical rather than
comprehensive, Ingram focuses on seven traits attributed to God: goodness,
sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love and faithfulness. Although Ingram
relies on the work of evangelical heavyweights like C.S. Lewis and A.W. Tozer
to make his points, his primary sources in answering questions about such
conundrums as why God allows suffering or the nature of Christ's sacrificial
atonement for sin are the Old and New Testaments. One caveat: though Ingram's
style is accessible and often engaging, his methodical and rather pedagogical
style may narrow his potential audience to readers comfortable with the
traditional language of conservative apologetics. Suitable for personal or
group study, the end of each chapter on God's attributes includes an
inspirational quotation, a prayer and a devotional anecdote. (Aug.)
