New PDF release: A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel

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 have to be challenged.
But what if, as an alternative, God actually is totally Christlike? What if His love is extra beneficiant, his pass extra robust, and his gospel extra appealing than we’ve dared to visualize? What if our clearest snapshot of God is the self-giving, considerably forgiving, co-suffering Love printed at the pass? What if we had 'A extra Christlike God'?

"This very good and much-needed e-book confronts
with either open middle and intensely good
mind the main stumbling blocks we've got created
for humans of their trip towards God! So
many people are asking, “Why didn’t people
teach us this decades 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."

compassion, Brad Jersak creates a beautiful
space for Jesus to problem our perspectives of
God. A breath of unpolluted and clarifying air."

"Brad Jersak has given us a present of greatest
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
to everybody. Jersak represents a brand new generation
of Christian theologians whose work
is either desperately wanted and wonderfully
liberating."

"Brad Jersak has immersed himself in the
company of the terrible, the addicted, the
outsiders. he's made up our minds to get better 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 percentage his lifestyles 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 stumbled on its success in Brad Jersak’s
journey from the ‘volatile ethical monster’
to the face of Jesus’ Father. the following the
ancient music of sunshine sings us new eyes:
Behold the Lamb, similar to his Father.
A worthy treasure, worthwhile of serious
reflection."
