You may be hostile to the God of the Bible—or maybe you’re a dutiful Christian whose faith is dry and stale. Dr. John K. LaShell draws on Jonathan Edwards to explain the beauty of God. He writes for two kinds of readers: those who suspect God is unlovely, and those who want to love Him more.

RobertAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Book Worth ReadingAugust 9, 2011RobertAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
Bethany LeBedzConcord, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thought Provoking and ChallengingDecember 13, 2010Bethany LeBedzConcord, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The 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!
