A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel by Bradley Jersak PDF

By Bradley Jersak

what's God like? poisonous pictures abound: God the punishing pass judgement on, the deadbeat dad, the genie in a bottle—false gods that must be challenged.
But what if, as an alternative, God really is totally Christlike? What if His love is extra beneficiant, his move extra strong, and his gospel extra appealing than we’ve dared to visualize? What if our clearest photo of God is the self-giving, noticeably forgiving, co-suffering Love printed at the go? What if we had 'A extra Christlike God'?


"This first-class and much-needed e-book confronts
with either open middle and extremely good
mind the foremost stumbling blocks we've created
for humans of their trip towards God! So
many folks are asking, “Why didn’t people
teach us this a long time ago?” i'm so
grateful that Brad Jersak is re-opening the
door that Jesus had already opened 2000
years in the past. it's so extraordinarily unhappy that it was
ever closed."

God. A breath of unpolluted and clarifying air."

value: a clean imaginative and prescient of God, Christ, the
Cross, Scripture and ourselves. He displays
the infrequent skill to take deep theological
issues and lead them to understandable

of Christian theologians whose work
is either desperately wanted and wonderfully

"Brad Jersak has immersed himself in the
company of the bad, the addicted, the
outsiders. he's made up our minds to recuperate the
essence of the “beautiful” gospel for all
of us. The conspicuous mark that characterizes
every web page of this winsome
witness is that it's a “lived theology.” He
has given attentive aspect to what's in the
theological libraries, yet isn't really content
with that. He has labored it out on the
streets and within the lives of these with
whom he has selected to proportion his existence and
Christlike God witness, a convincingly
beautiful Gospel."
Translator of The Message

“'Good souls many will at some point be horrified
at the issues they now think of
God.' George MacDonald’s prophecy
has came across its success in Brad Jersak’s
journey from the ‘volatile ethical monster’
to the face of Jesus’ Father. the following the
ancient track of sunshine sings us new eyes:
Behold the Lamb, similar to his Father.
A necessary treasure, helpful of serious
