The Bible tells us God is loving and kind. He sent his only Son, Jesus, to save the world from sin. But is God really loving and kind? How do we understand the seeming cruelty of God, who asked Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac? How do we understand a seemingly unjust God, who accepted Abel's offering, but rejected Cain's? Is this the God who loves us? How can we love and trust such a God?There are answers to these questions, and more. Stories from the Old Testament of what looks like God's cruelty and unjustness on the surface are examined deeply to reveal God's presence and purpose. The words of Jesus and the apostles in the New Testament are highlighted as proof of God's love and kindness. Coleman offers us stories from his own life to illuminate how he has experienced God's love and kindness, and to show that:God is personal, not detached.God is caring, not cruel.God is relevant, not random.We are invited to go on a journey to understand who this God is, and to live in that reality. In a world of turmoil and pain Coleman describes the problem and presents a hope.
