Brilliant! Nov 19, 2002
I am fortunate enough to be from the same area Phillip Keller lived and was able to hear him speak on a number of occasions. He was a man who truly knew God, and that fact shines through in "What is the Father Like?". It is a wonderful devotional look at God's nature and His attitude towards His children. Written in the first person, Keller shows the tender, loving heart of God and draws the reader into a deeper understanding of God as our Father. It is an indispensable book in dark times and a must read for all Christians.
Makes God (Jesus) more accessable Jul 12, 2000
I couldnt put this book down! It shows us how much God (Jesus) loves us! How He came to earth to "walk in our shoe's" and that He isnt some diety that we cant have for a friend and Savior! This devotional book is one that I recommend to everyone weather they are saved or not! It tells of how He yearns for a relationship with us and how He wants so much for us to just accept His gifts of love and salvation! It's as if God (Jesus) Himself is talking to you personally, its amazing how you get caught up in it and begin to feel as if God is talking to you personally as you read it. If your already a Christian this book will draw you closer to God...give you a more clear understanding of Him and His love! If your not a Christian, you will have a new understanding of what God is like and how much He loves you, how He is reaching out to you and waiting patiently for you to just give Him a chance to come into your life and show you His Love, Grace, Mercy, understanding, and most of all His deep desire to have you come into His Kingdom! This is a must read!
One of the Best May 23, 2000
I have recently completed Experiencing God by Blackaby and Breaking Free by Beth Moore. What is the Father is Like? goes along with those ideas perfectly. I have not been able to put this book down. It is wonderful to discover how much the Father loves us and desires to know us.
