"A.W. Tozer famously said that what we think about God is the most important thing about us. Brad Hambrick has provided the church with a deeply theological, yet practically helpful tool for exploring the attributes of God, helping us see Him more clearly and living in proper response. The cycle of "rest" to "emulation" model he proposes is pure gold. This is a life-changing study."
The Gospel isnt just an ethereal idea. Its not a philosophy and its not static. It moves and shapes and transforms the lives of those who by Gods grace alone put their faith in Jesus life, death and resurrection. I am grateful for ABCs work of letting the Gospel bear its weight on these real life sorrows and pains.
"God's Attributes: Rest for Life's Struggles" will lead you into a study of the character and attributes of our God that will deepen your knowledge of the God we love and worship. In the process, it will guide you towards cultivating these character traits in your own life and to walk in faith before the God in whose likeness you are being transformed."
"Scripture tells us that 'the name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe' (Prov. 18:10). Brad Hambrick captures this dual emphasis brilliantly by telling us to both rest in and emulate the marvelous attributes of God. This is a fine study that can be used to transform both heart and mind."
