God As He Wants You to Know Him

I remember reading A.W. Tozer's classic, The Knowledge of the Holy, and in it Tozer says, "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us."  As a young college student that hit me extremely hard (it still does!).  I wanted to know that God was more than what my finite brain could understand.  The problem I had was that I was in Bible college and all the books (other than Tozer's) was written from an academic, theologian's perspective and I was always getting lost in the language.  That's why I'm grateful for this new book by Dr. Bill Thrasher.  Dr. Thrasher is professor of Bible and Theology at Moody Theological Seminary, and he manages to communicate the most academic biblical truth with the heart and personal connection of a pastor.  

His new book, God As He Wants You to Know Him, Dr. Thrasher teaches:
  • Why the doctrine of God is so foundational to our Christian life
  • What the symptoms of having a wrong view God and what we can do to correct them
  • There are wrong responses to the goodness of God
  • Know God can result in experiencing the deepest desires of one's heart
Plus so much more.  The book is written in somewhat of a devotional format so it's perfect to start your day with.  He also has a complimentary study guide which is available at his web site by clicking here.

As the Christmas season approaches and the New Year will be soon upon us, take the time to really know how God wants you to know Him. To listen to my conversation with Dr. Thrasher please click here or scroll down to the media player.
