Surveying the narratives, psalms, and prophetic texts of the Old Testament, Wright reveals God as terrifying yet tender, challenging to the nations and yet intimately personal. You'll discover the Father whom Jesus knew in a way that goes beyond devotions and doctrine to the very shaping of your worldview, ethics, and future expectations. 180 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
It's almost second nature for Christians to call God Father. Jesus taught his followers as much, although for them it was apparently a surprising practice. The worshiping community of the Old Testament used fatherly images for understanding God's character and actions, but "Father" was not a common way for believers to address God. In Knowing God the Father Through the Old Testament, Christopher Wright explores in depth the images that pervade the biblical narratives, psalms and prophetic texts of the Old Testament. God is acknowledged as tender yet terrifying, challenging to the nations and yet intimately personal, offering loving care, provision, discipline and forgiveness. This is the God whom Jesus knew, and whom we can know, as Father. Such knowledge of God is far from merely devotional or doctrinal, but governs our worldview, personal and social ethics, and expectations of the future.
