Their God is Too Small

Bruce A Ware

$18.99

Paperback

A new theology is trickling down from the lofty halls of academia to the pews of evangelical churches. Called "open theism," this novel view of God denies that he fully knows the future and insists that He takes risks by giving humans wide-ranging freedom. This view has disastrous consequences for the everyday faith of ordinary Christians, consequences you can't afford to ignore. This book explains some of the beliefs of open theism and shows their practical implications. Using biblical truth and personal anecdotes, Bruce Ware demonstrates how open theism undermines trust in God for everyday life, particularly in the midst of suffering. This is no dry academic discourse; if you care about God's glory and your confidence in Him, then this book is for you because it concerns the everyday issues of faith.

MacArthur, Jr., Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California"Open theism supports its reducing of God's sovereignty by denying his full knowledge of the future. If any doubt remains as to whether this falls short of the Bible's teaching and waters down Christian faith and hope, Bruce Ware's pastoral reasoning will surely dispel it." --J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College"Their God Is Too Small effectively exposes the diminished God of open theism, and in so doing provides pastors with a powerful tool to foster genuine faith in the sovereign, wise, and trustworthy God of the Bible." --C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, Maryland"Confusion about God inevitably leads to confusion about life. Thankfully, Bruce Ware keeps our heads and hearts on track toward an accurate knowledge of God against the backdrop of prevalent distortions." --Joseph M. Stowell, President, Moody Bible Institute
