Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
Moody Publishers, 2019, 176 pages
It’s easy for us as mission related people to speak to others about Jesus who cared for the poor, healed the sick, and preached love and justice for the under privileged. But what about the God who tells the Israelites to wage war and kill entire people groups? Or sends people to hell? Can this be the same God? This book takes you on a journey through the Bible exploring God’s true nature. You’ll study instances of great mercy and great severity, and by the end, you’ll begin to see why both God’s compassion and his wrath are necessary and important.
