Item Description...
Overview
Classic works on God's attributes have helped to establish his indisputable nature. But, argues Mark Galli, the very attributes that accent God's holiness and otherness are the ones that demonstrate his love for us and his nearness to us. These characteristics include his

mystery
immanence
omniscience
omnipresence
eternal nature
immutability
omnipotence
sovereignty
glory
triune nature
suffering
righteousness
jealousy
wrath
and mercy
Through this thorough exploration, Galli deftly shows readers how the unnerving news of God's remoteness becomes the good news of his great love. Anyone who yearns for both a more majestic understanding of God and a more intimate relationship with him will welcome this clear and fresh treatment.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Atrributes of God Made Practical to Our Minds  Apr 20, 2009
What would you expect when you buy a book on the attributes of God? Whatever it may be that you expect, it probably will not be what you get when you begin to read Galli's book A Great and Terrible Love (hereon referred to a GTL).

That's not to say that the book is bad. I greatly enjoyed it. The book is surprising.

GTL takes some of the attributes of God and examines them. It is not examination in a theology proper sort of way, though. We tend to think of attributes of God such as omnipotence, omniscience, transcendence, love, righteousness, etc. as abstract things. Galli does not, and with good reason. They are not abstract. They are lively attributes of the living God.

GTL is an examination of the attributes of God in a very practical way. How do they affect my life? What significance do they hold for us? What is their importance to Christians? These are important questions. GTL goes far in answering them.

Galli has written GTL to be very easy to read. It is not hard reading. I read the book in less than three hours. I honestly did not want to put it down.

This book could be the gateway book that would bring someone into the study of theology.

All oft this being said, I did tend to have a concern about Galli's rendition of the righteousness of God. Perhaps it was his attempt to show us one side of it that left me with a little discomfort. It seemed to be a departure from the typical view of righteousness. It may not have been, but it left that impression with me. I do not think his statement is heretical. I do think it is lacking.

All in all, this book is excellent. It certainly could comfort many a troubled soul. It will also provide knowledge of God to one who is seeking to learn.
