The Living God

Posted on 23 September 2014 Gavin Glenn

The Christian Belief for Everyone series comprises five reliable, accessible and readable guides to the basic ideas of the Christian faith. Full of stories and helpful illustrations, these guides have been written primarily for ordinary churchgoers but will also appeal to interested readers outside the Church.

The approach Alister McGrath adopts is non-denominational, very similar to the ‘mere Christianity’ advocated by C. S. Lewis. Indeed, the series may be seen as a guide to ‘mere Christianity’, focusing clearly as it does on the life of faith. We look at why Christians believe what they do, how we can best understand these ideas, and the difference they make to the way we think about ourselves and our world.

The Living God draws us into an exhilarating exploration of who God is. We encounter a personal God who longs for a relationship with us; and almighty God whose greatness is simply beyond our understanding; a creator God, in whose image we are made; and a profound God whom we discover to be three, yet one. This volume may be read as complete in itself, or with the other four titles in the series – Faith and the Creeds, Lord and Saviour: Jesus of Nazareth, Spirit of the Living God and the Christian Life and Hope – to gain a thorough understanding of Christian belief.
