God's gentle temperament, genuine concern for all life and compassion are rarely if ever discussed. In fact most conversations about Him focus on His wrath, judgment and invincible power. As a result, many are left with the impression that the Lord is an angry being who holds grudges and keeps a long record of every sin ever committed. This misconception has prevented most from grasping the truth that God is: nice, gracious, patient, slow to anger, and forgiving. From the dawn of time until now, the Lord has shown kindness to all. In God is Nice, His characteristics are revealed through careful study of the relationship He has with mankind. When you read this book you will see an eye-opening depiction of the Lord's character. God is Nice uses biblical accounts of the Lord's encounters with humanity to reveal who He is as a person. In God is Nice, Rev. Dr. Hodge guides you through the scriptures to help you: Comprehend the essence of the Lord's character. Realize that God, your greatest supporter, has always wanted good things for you. Understand the role wrongdoing plays in concealing the truth about the Lord's nature. Decide that God is a gracious person abounding in love and forgiveness. Run to the Lord not away from Him.
