Item description for The Living God: A Look at What the Bible says about God by R. T. France...
The living God: unique, all-powerful, Creator of all things; a God to be known, personally and intimately; dynamic, active today in human affairs. This book is not an academic study of what the church has taught, or what scholars have said, but rather a challenging study of what the Bible itself says about God. In The Living God, author R. T. France encourages us to come to grips with the broad sweep of biblical data, showing us that the God of the Bible is neither passive nor far removed from our everyday lives, but rather a dynamic and living reality to be engaged. "This book is a gem It is well written, it is pulsating with life, it is full of vital truths. A book about the doctrine of God, but written in a modern style, with a light touch, yet without avoiding the deep issues involved... first-class material." -Christian Weekly Newspapers R. T. France has taught at London Bible College and was principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, from 1989 to 1995. He has published scholarly commentaries on Matthew, Mark and Hebrews, and is also the author of Jesus the Radical, The Evidence for Jesus, and Jesus and the Old Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Living God: A Look at What the Bible says about God?
Practical Theology Oct 8, 2006
First published in 1970, this short work gives the reader a breath-taking overview of the majesty and glory of the Living God. The 1970 edition was divided into seven chapters: (1) The Living God, (2) Knowing About God, (3) Knowing God, (4) God Above (God transcendent), (5) God with us (God imminent), (6) Three in One (God Triune), and (7) God in the Twentieth Century. It is great to see this little gem back in print; read it, meditate on the Scriptures it unfolds, and you will learn, as St. Patrick (ca. 400 AD) learned, to bind yourself to the strong name (character) of the Trinity and truly worship the Three in One and the One in Three.
