Francis Chan writes about God being strong. The Bible describes God as being strong, but Chan finds that today, his followers, or as Chan says, his children are weak and scared. He then encourages the readers to have confidence in God and to remember that they are very powerful because the Holy Spirit lives inside of them. Stovall Weems focuses on God as merciful. He describes Gods infinite love and forgiveness, describing how it influenced his own Christian walk. He then reminds the reader that Gods mercy is vast, so vast that no one can do anything that is unforgivable, quoting from Psalm 103:11, For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.
What Is God Really Like? is a very impressive book and enjoyable to read. It is a book written for the layman. It doesnt attempt to be a deep theological thesis; it simply tries to describe God in ways that are easy to understand. I highly recommend it. Nathan Sturgis, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
William HerttterNormal, ILAge: Over 65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5December 21, 2012William HerttterNormal, ILAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is wonderful. It was so refreshing to read chapters by so many writers all in one book. In chapter 16, titled "God Is More" one of the contributors, Chris Hodges writes: "I can pretty much guarantee you that whenever you obey God when he asks you to step out of your comfort zone, there will always be someone trying to rein you back to their reality. Even our well-meaning Christian friends might try to talk you out of whatever it is God is calling you to do."
"If we're going to worry about what others think, we'll simply never get more of God."
Get the book and discover what we are missing if we fail to make practical application of God's word in our lives.

davedallas, txAge: 55-65Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5some spots of weak theologyNovember 26, 2012davedallas, txAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2while many of the individual chapters offer interesting illustrations, too many of them are weak in their theology and present man as God's top interest rather than having a solid understanding that God's chief interest is in His own glory not ours.....further, man is presented as flawed but not fatally hopeless without God....without God we are dead and hopeless not just in trouble
as i said, interesting but not great theologically
