"That God should be 'for us' will be a remarkable and transforming discovery for those who have grown weary under the whiplash of a theology that drives us to 'do something for God!' I wish that overburdened pastors could read this book before ever preaching another sermon and uninspired Christians could inhale its fragrance before going to church!"

Overview

"That God should be 'for us' will be a remarkable and transforming discovery for those who have grown weary under the whiplash of a theology that drives us to 'do something for God!' I wish that overburdened pastors could read this book before ever preaching another sermon and uninspired Christians could inhale its fragrance before going to church!"

Professor of Theology and Ministry, Fuller Theological Seminary

"When I picked up God is for Us I read it through in one sitting, in an hour. I could not tear myself away from the sheer goodness of the triune God that Baxter Kruger conveys in this short book. But then I had to go back and read it carefully through again, in order to allow the deep truths to penetrate my life afresh. Here is a clearly presented exposition of the profound truth that we are created to be with God forever!"
- Graham Buxton

Senior Lecturer and Head of Ministry, Tabor College, South Australia

"God is for Us is a must read for those working with damaged people. As flowers open up to the sun, so wounded souls open to the light of God's goodness. Many mentally unwell patients have been transformed by the reality of God's goodness to us in Jesus Christ as laid out in this little book."

-Dr. Bruce Wauchope

Medical Practioner, Bedford Clinic, Adelaide, Australia

Dr. Kruger's book is simply beautiful. Taking the best of Christian Trinitarian theology and making it digestable for the person in the pew is no easy task. However, Dr. Kruger has done this and succeeded eminently. As one Presbyterian seminary professor at a Southeastern PCUSA seminary noted recently, there is a real dirth of books theologically sound that are written at an understandable level for the average church reader. Dr. Kruger's happily is just one of these few. Theologically sound, with a vision of God in Christ and of God in Christ's complete devotion for the individual that will make the spirit and soul soar, this book is to be recommended for Sunday School classes and Bible Studies in the local church.
