Item description for God Our Father by John Koessler...
Overview Whether we call Him "Father," "Daddy," or "Abba," the first person of the Trinity is the place we must begin in prayer, worship, and obedience. Grounded in Scripture, Koessler explores God's nature, character, and work, giving each chapter a practical application. Each chapter has discussion questions for group study or for individuals. What is God like? This profound, simple question reverberates through the centuries. And it is a question that not only finds delight, but a kind of wonder, in the shocking and surprising answer found throughout Scripture: God is a Father. Answers like that deserve exploration. The idea that God is a father is too full, too rich in implications, to not be deeply examined, explored, and considered. That is exactly what John Koessler does in God Our Father, a fine work of theology that is relentlessly determined to not only be true, but to be authentic, full of devotional inspiration and practical application. This is teaching that leads to love: love for God, love for His ways, and love for the people He has created. Throughout the pages, Koessler writes in an understandable, pastoral manner, carefully walking the reader through the various aspects of God's character and purposes as Father. His approach is marked by historical sensitivity, breadth of reading, and everyday examples. Along the way he explores such topics as: * God as the Helper of the Poor and Oppressed * The Father's Role in the Trinity * How God Disciplines His Children * How to Talk to God as We Would a Father This is theology at its best: warm, wise, and thoughtful. See if it doesn't deepen your own love for God as your Father. Also available in this series Jesus Christ our Lord by John F. Walvoord The Holy Spirit by Charles C. Ryrie
