"Someone once noted that God made us in His image, and ever since we have tried to do God a favor by making Him in our image."
It’s easy to speak to others about the Jesus who cared for the poor, healed the sick, and preached love and justice for the least of these. But what about the God who tells the Israelites to wage war and kill entire people groups? Or threatens exile and then delivers? Or sends people to hell? Can these really be the same God?
The simple answer is, yes. God in His Own Image takes you on a journey through the Bible exploring God’s true nature. You’ll study instances of great mercy and great severity, and by the end, you’ll begin to see why both God’s compassion and his wrath are necessary, important, and even beautiful.
Get to know the God who is both Lion and Lamb, both Judge and Father, both kind and severe, and perfect in every way.
