Item description for Before God by George W. Stroup...

Overview
Many Christians today have experienced a loss of enormous significance - they no longer understand their daily lives to be lived "before God." This timely work traces the development and implications of this loss and argues for its recovery. In comparing contemporary Christians with believers of previous eras, author George Stroup sees an "eclipse" of life lived before God. This eclipse is tragic because the Bible presupposes human life as a daily, personal relationship with God. Stroup here offers help by exploring anew the biblical view that Jesus Christ models most clearly what life lived before God and neighbor looks like. He then suggests that describing Christian life as gratitude naturally evokes a sense of life lived before God. The book concludes by examining whether life before God requires a sense of God's presence - and whether it is possible to live before God even in those times when he seems to be absent. Offering thought-provoking analysis of modern faith and sound direction for spiritual renewal, Before God is perfect for churches, study groups, pastors, and individuals pursuing genuine discipleship.
