The notion of God has almost certainty been absent in our world, even in some churches. As such christian grow up with a shallow and minute understanding of God. Our understanding of God is certainty far too small. Melvin Tinker wants to use this book to address this issue and help christians grow in their understanding of who God is.
Tinker teaches the readers through 9 beautifully written exposition the different aspect of God. Within the expositions, Tinker lets readers draw deeply from the Word of God while at the same time explaining the bible verses used in his expositions. Tinker also showcases how a sermon can be Christ-centred, or how a teaching in the old testament naturally finds its fulfilment in Christ.
What sets this book apart from others is really how Tinker holds no punches back, and speaks relevantly to people of this age. Tinker highlights the problems of our age, and points out how the bible rebukes us on it. But Tinker does not stop at that. Most importantly, Tinker shows us how our problem has been solved by God Himself, through the person of Jesus Christ. Following which, Tinker brings us to the future world that awaits those who belongs to Him.
I have found this book to be excellently written. I would recommend anyone who wants good exposition on the doctrine of God to read this book. For pastors who want to learn how to give biblical expositions that engages the modern world, you should really give this book a good read. I hope this book will help teach pastors how they can preach biblically in our times and also engage the minds of Christians to see that God has not and will not disappear from our world and our lives, no matter how hard we try.
