Item description for The Message of the Living God: His Glory, His People, His World (Bible Speaks Today) by Peter Lewis...
Overview The God of the Bible is the living, active and self-revealing God. He takes the initiative in making himself known. He is a speaking God, and he calls for a listening people. This is a book by Peter Lewis, a theologian and preacher, who believes that the first purpose of a biblical theology is to lead us to the feet of the living God. The book ends with the theme of worship: an attitude and activity that takes us out into the world to serve this living God and make him known.
Publishers Description There is nothing more important, more urgent, than knowing the living God. Nothing will so shape your thoughts, your actions and your perspective on the world than personal knowledge of God as creator and redeemer. And there is no better place to turn for knowledge--and experience--of God than to Scripture. For in the books of the Old and New Testaments, God has revealed himself to you. In The Message of the Living God Peter Lewis helps you to expand and deepen your knowledge of God with an exploration of key passages from Genesis to Revelation. Beginning with the creation story of Genesis 1, the springboard of the Bible, and ending with Revelation's doxology, the worship of the living God, this clear and helpful exposition displays the panorama of God's eternal being, creating work and redeeming acts. Companions to the Bible Speaks Today commentaries, the volumes of the Bible Speaks Today Bible Themes Series highlight the message of key biblical texts in support of various facets of Christian belief. Rooted in Christian heritage and conversant with contemporary culture, this series provides a rich resource for preaching, teaching and spiritual growth.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of the Living God: His Glory, His People, His World (Bible Speaks Today)?
Excellent Biblical overview Mar 7, 2010
This book presents an overview of the Bible's message. The overview consists of selected sections of the Bible, from Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, John, Romans, Matthew, and Revelation. This is a book not to be rushed through, but to be read slowly and attentively and appreciatively. It is a book well worth reading. As the title says, the book concerns "The Message of the Living God", and there is plenty of application to today in the book.
