Encountering the Attributes of God Makes a Difference in How We Relate to Him Too often, we make God too small, too manageable. But careful examination of God's attributes reveals a God full of mystery, eternity, righteousness, and mercy. In A Great and Terrible Love, Mark Galli thoughtfully delivers unexpected glimpses into fifteen classic attributes of God, exposing cheap substitutes and delivering a fresh vision of God. "The book you hold now is a part of the longest and most important conversation held by the human race: What is God like?"--from the foreword by John Ortberg "This is a very, very rare book. It did what few books I read do to me today--moved me closer to God and deeper in my walk and understanding of who he is."--Bob Roberts Jr., senior pastor, NorthWood Church; founder Glocal.net; author, Glocalization, Transformation, and The Multiplying Church "Any individual or group who works through these meditations on God will find them full of nourishment."--J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College "Thought-provoking and profoundly challenging. In these pages I rediscovered the sovereign and merciful God who is our one and only hope."--Carolyn Arends, recording artist; author, Wrestling With Angels "Galli is helping us trade in our safe, wishful thinking of God for the one really worth knowing and worshiping."--Ted Olsen, managing editor, News & Online Journalism, Christianity Today Mark Galli is senior managing editor of Christianity Today. A former Presbyterian minister, he is the author, coauthor, or editor of several books, including Jesus Mean and Wild, Beyond Smells and Bells, and Francis of Assisi and His World.

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 hismysteryimmanenceomniscienceomnipresenceeternal natureimmutabilityomnipotencesovereigntyglorytriune naturesufferingrighteousnessjealousywrathand mercyThrough 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.
