God Our Father

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. 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

Sivu 5 - Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 1 am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.' So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.
