What is God like? Toxic images abound: God the punishing judge, the deadbeat dad, the genie in a bottle-false gods that need to be challenged.But what if, instead, God truly is completely Christlike? What if His love is more generous, his Cross more powerful, and his gospel more beautiful than we've dared to imagine? What if our clearest image of God is the self-giving, radically forgiving, co-suffering Love revealed on the Cross? What if we had 'A More Christlike God'?Endorsements:"This excellent and much-needed book confrontswith both open heart and very goodmind the major obstacles we have createdfor people in their journey toward God! Somany of us are asking, "Why didn't peopleteach us this many years ago?" I am sograteful that Brad Jersak is re-opening thedoor that Jesus had already opened 2000years ago. It is so terribly sad that it wasever closed."- Fr. RICHARD ROHRCenter for Action and Contemplation"With theological integrity and open-heartedcompassion, Brad Jersak creates a beautifulspace for Jesus to challenge our views ofGod. A breath of clean and clarifying air."- WILLIAM PAUL YOUNGAuthor of The Shack"Brad Jersak has given us a gift of greatestvalue: a fresh vision of God, Christ, theCross, Scripture and ourselves. He displaysthe rare ability to take deep theologicalissues and make them understandableto everyone. Jersak represents a new generationof Christian theologians whose workis both desperately needed and wonderfullyliberating."- BRIAN D. McLARENAuthor of We Make the Road by Walking"Brad Jersak has immersed himself in thecompany of the poor, the addicted, theoutsiders. He is determined to recover theessence of the "beautiful" gospel for allof us. The conspicuous mark that characterizesevery page of this winsomewitness is that it is a "lived theology." Hehas given attentive detail to what is in thetheological libraries, but is not contentwith that. He has worked it out on thestreets and in the lives of those withwhom he has chosen to share his life andChristlike God witness, a convincinglybeautiful Gospel."- EUGENE H. PETERSONTranslator of The Message"'Good souls many will one day be horrifiedat the things they now believe ofGod.' George MacDonald's prophecyhas found its fulfillment in Brad Jersak'sjourney from the 'volatile moral monster'to the face of Jesus' Father. Here theancient song of light sings us new eyes:Behold the Lamb, just like his Father.A priceless treasure, worthy of seriousreflection."- BAXTER KRUGERAuthor of The Shack Revisited and Patmos
