Author Bio

John K. LaShell holds the BA from Moody Bible Institute, the MA from Talbot Theological Seminary, and the PhD from Westminster Theological Seminary. He has written numerous articles for local newspapers and several for theological journals. He was also a contributor to the Blackwell Dictionary of Evangelical Biography, 1730–1860. He has taught for-credit humanities classes at a Penn State regional campus, and non-credit theology classes for students at Kutztown University and in the former Soviet Union. He entered the pastoral ministry in 1970 and for the past fifteen years has served a Conservative Baptist congregation in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Dr. LaShell has been greatly influenced by the theology of Jonathan Edwards, and this influence is clearly reflected in The Beauty of God for a Broken World. He and his wife Heather have two married children and four grandchildren.

    This review was written for The Beauty of God in a Broken World.
    I found the book very profitable to read. You covered some hare issues that many want to avoid but need tobe though out and discussed. The Atheist do much more thinking on these matters then most Christians, even pastors. I also think that you did a good job of restating Edwards teaching with out watering him down. I believe that your book does truly open up the beauty of God. Unfortunately what is the beauty of God for His people, is ugliness and death to those who are perishing.

    This review was written for The Beauty of God in a Broken World.
    The Beauty of God for a Broken World by Dr. John K. La Shell is not your typical defense of Christianity. It answers the hard questions using real biblical truths and the writings of Jonathan Edwards. God is a beautiful Creator, Redeemer, Judge, and Trinity. Dr. La Shell answers such questions as "How can predestination be fair?" and "Why would a good God allow suffering?".

    Expect to be challenged. Find answers for yourself--especially if you consider yourself to be an ex-Christian or a seeker--or for your friends and family. The Beauty of God is not an easy, quick read, but rather a thought-provoking theological treatise. Don't let that scare you away, though, Dr. La Shell mixes in real-life anecdotes and definitions to make sure no one is left out in the dark. I highly recommend this book!

    Disclosure: I received this book for free from the author, but the opinions expressed are my own.
