An important study of the first five books of the Bible
revealing the nature of God as revealed through Moses.
Written with a deep-felt desire to communicate to today's
Christian the truth of the person and character of God as
revealed in the Pentatuch, a view that is sadly lacking in
many who profess Christ yet do not know their God.
Nothing better explains the world in which we live than
the fact that modern society is almost totally bereft of
the knowledge of God. To make matters worse, the church
itself is losing touch with the revelation of God in Holy
Scripture. The church does not know her God and many
characteristics of modern evangelical life are directly
attributable to that ignorance. Nothing is so calculated
to enfeeble the church as a diminished or faulty
conception of God himself.
In this fine study Linleigh Roberts sets out to
reintroduce the church to her God by exploring the
revelation of God given in the first five books of the
Bible. There is a good reason to begin with the Pentateuch
in thinking about God. Here, at the headwaters of biblical
revelation, we are taught to think of everything in
relation to God: life and death, good and evil, salvation
and judgement. What is more, the presentation of God in
these first books of the Bible concentrates on precisely
those attributes of his being and character that are
fundamental to the true understanding of everything else
that is taught in Holy Scripture.
In demonstrating this Roberts explains why the knowledge
of God lies at the foundation of all faith and all right
living. Because all roads lead from God and to God this
study is nothing less than an introduction to reality, as
are the five books of the Bible on which it is based. Know
Your God is marked by faithfulness to the text of Holy
Scripture, careful scholarship, consecrated thinking,
suggestive applications and wonderfully clear prose
punctuated with helpful illustrations and apt quotations.
This is historic Christian theology presented in a fresh
and timely way.
