Product Description

For the past two years, Craig Groeschel (www.lifechurch.tv) and his church have hosted an international multi-church campaign called ONE PRAYER, a month-long concerted focus on unifying the many different, diverse churches participating by praying together and serving their local communities. In 2009, ONE PRAYER campaign attracted over 2,000 churches and over 1,000,000 church members. Many of these churches are high-profile evangelical churches with pastors who are also successful authors and speakers. The campaign continues to attract interest from more and more churches and ministries. The 2010 campaign, scheduled for June, is expected to grow by 50 percent. This compilation book features chapters by seventeen of the best and brightest participant pastors, including Andy Stanley, Francis Chan, Jentezen Franklin, Perry Noble, Steven Furtick, and others.

What Is God Really Like?, edited by Craig Groeschel, aims to answer the question posed by its title. All too often, Groeschel indicates in his introduction, people are satisfied with simply knowing about God, instead of actually knowing Him. Employing seventeen different authors and pastors including Francis Chan and Stovall Weems, the book seeks to encourage seekers, both new Christians and long-time believers alike, to desire a deeper relationship with God. The book is divided into seventeen chapters, each with a different author and a different aspect of God. The sections were compiled by Groeschel, the pastor who started ONE PRAYER: a month-long campaign to unite churches through prayer and local community service. He collected the sections from the pastors of the many churches involved in ONE PRAYER. Francis Chan is the author of the best-selling book Crazy Love, and Stovall Weems is senior pastor of Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL.

Francis Chan writes about God being strong. The Bible describes God as being strong, but Chan finds that today, his followers, or as Chan says, his “children” are weak and scared. He then encourages the readers to have confidence in God and to remember that they are very powerful because the Holy Spirit lives inside of them. Stovall Weems focuses on God as merciful. He describes God’s infinite love and forgiveness, describing how it influenced his own Christian walk. He then reminds the reader that God’s mercy is vast, so vast that no one can do anything that is unforgivable, quoting from Psalm 103:11, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.”

What Is God Really Like? is a very impressive book and enjoyable to read. It is a book written for the layman. It doesn’t attempt to be a deep theological thesis; it simply tries to describe God in ways that are easy to understand. I highly recommend it. – Nathan Sturgis, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This book is wonderful. It was so refreshing to read chapters by so many writers all in one book. In chapter 16, titled "God Is More" one of the contributors, Chris Hodges writes: "I can pretty much guarantee you that whenever you obey God when he asks you to step out of your comfort zone, there will always be someone trying to rein you back to their reality. Even our well-meaning Christian friends might try to talk you out of whatever it is God is calling you to do."

    "If we're going to worry about what others think, we'll simply never get more of God."

    Get the book and discover what we are missing if we fail to make practical application of God's word in our lives.

    This book highlights the different aspects of who God is and how awesome His love is for his children. Knowing His character draws us into a more intimate relationship with our awesome God, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

    while many of the individual chapters offer interesting illustrations, too many of them are weak in their theology and present man as God's top interest rather than having a solid understanding that God's chief interest is in His own glory not ours.....further, man is presented as flawed but not fatally hopeless without God....without God we are dead and hopeless not just in trouble

    as i said, interesting but not great theologically
