It's time to change our ideas about God.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus showed us that God's infinite power is matched by his humility; that the success of his Kingdom is defined not by conquering our enemies through force or fear, in the courtroom or on the battlefield, but by our love for them; that the heart of the omnipotent God always serves.

Servant God is written by a wide variety of authors, both theologians and lay people. This blend of writers reflects the composition of God's Kingdom people from different backgrounds and walks of life joining in a common message, bound together by their love for a Person God revealed in Jesus.

Review:

"I'm convinced that Servant God is this year's most important how-to-change-the-world book... I have never seen so many difficult questions about God's character answered so well in so little space." --Brian Lowther, Director, Roberta Winter Institute, Pasadena, California

"I was profoundly blessed by reading this gospel-oriented, grace-filled book...One leaves this book with a renewed sense of wholeness and peace. It should be on the reading list of every thoughtful soul." --Lawrence T. Geraty, President Emeritus, La Sierra University; Executive Director, LSU Foundation, La Sierra, California

"The book's major premise is that if one takes the incarnation seriously, then when we see Jesus we see God. And when we observe that Jesus responded to all situations with love and mercy, it follows that God is a God of love and mercy. This conclusion stands in sharp contrast to the traditional view of a wrathful God who has commanded God's people to carry out massacres, who controls natural disasters to enact judgement and punishment, and who will punish sinners eternally in a fiery hell." --J. Denny Weaver, Professor Emeritus of Religion, Bluffton University
