Many people envision God as a strict father figure--stern, detached, exacting, and vengeful--lacking feelings and emotions. Yet, once we come to understand that God actually expresses a wide range of passion, we will relate to Him on a much more "human" level and start seeing Him for who He really is. In Passionate God, Kenneth Ulmer helps us understand and appreciate the "humanity" of God as expressed through His emotions: joy, sympathy, grief, care, laughter, jealousy, humor, anger, and, of course, love. This book will change the way people view and relate to God because it reveals a Creator intimately involved with His beloved creation and is more like us than we ever imagined.
Kenneth Ulmer has served as senior pastor of Faithful Central Bible Church in Los Angeles for the past 30 years. During that time his ministry has grown from 300 to several thousand. He is the former president of King's University and currently serves as the presiding bishop over Macedonia International Bible Fellowship, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Bishop Ulmer is the author of Making Your Money Count and Passionate God.
