God in the Whirlwind

David F Wells

God in the Whirlwind

David F Wells

$23.99

PB Large Format

We all struggle at times to hold together the holiness and the love of God, and can fall into problems such as liberalism and universalism on the one hand, or legalism and moralism on the other. However, what David Wells calls God's 'holy-love' is right at the heart of the incarnation and cross of Jesus - and understanding how God's holiness is inextricably bound to his love is what sets apart Christian spirituality from other spiritualities, what characterizes authentic Christian worship, and what defines our life of service in the world.

Building on years of research and teaching, Wells offers a remedy for evangelicalism's often superficial theology and weightless conception of God. He examines and offers solutions to two particular problems facing the contemporary church: the pressure to conform to cultural norms, and the danger of living in an age of constant distraction.

This accessible, edifying and challenging volume helps us to cultivate a balanced vision of the meaning of God-centredness in our current context.

Commendations
'Rich, deep, and faithful - God in the Whirlwind invites us to come before the very heart of God. No theologian understands the modern world better than David Wells, yet no theologian uses the modern world more powerfully to wrench us back to truths that are foundational and never to be superseded by the latest anything. To be read slowly and with prayer.'
- Os Guinness, cofounder, The Trinity Forum; author, The Call

'In this important book, David Wells begins the process of bringing his influential critique of late modern culture and the church down into practice. Here we have a 'practical theology' for conducting the church's life based on the reality of a God of 'Holy-love.' This particular way of understanding and preaching the doctrine of God, Wells believes, protects the church from either being co-opted by the culture or becoming a ghettoized subculture. Decades of teaching theology is boiled down here into accessible, practical chapters. I'm glad to recommend this volume.'
- Timothy J. Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; author, The Reason for God

'...Here Dr. Wells is again the splendid biblical theologian he has long since proved himself to be - whose work is driven by devotion to the God who is Holy-love, and whose Luther-like desire to 'Let God be God' is clear on every page. Drink safely, deeply, and be satisfied.'
- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas
