Answers to these questions aren't always readily apparent-can anyone be certain? Sometimes the answers seem inconsequential-do the answers really matter? But sometimes answers contain half-truths and deceptive beliefs that challenge our understanding of God, faith, and the Bible. Many of these deceptive beliefs have now moved from the popular culture into the church.
Dr. Erwin Lutzer, one of America's leading pastors and Bible teachers, believes that the more clearly we see God, the more clearly we can see ourselves. Working from this basic idea, he examines ten misconceptions about God that threaten to cloud our understanding of Him. In this revealing book, Dr. Lutzer challenges these all-too-common notions and promotes biblically-sound beliefs, while helping us forge a stronger, deeper relationship with God.
Erwin W. Lutzer (Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary; M.A., Loyola University; L.L.D., Simon Greenleaf School of Law) is senior pastor of the historic Moody Church in Chicago, as well as a popular conference and radio speaker. His many books include The Doctrines That Divide, How You Can Be Sure That You Will Spend an Eternity with God, and One Minute After You Die.
