A Theology of Intolerant Love
Divine jealousy plays a central role in God?s activities throughout human history yet you never see ?jealous? as one of the desired qualities of leaders within the church. Thoennes shows that jealousy is a primary attribute of great leaders in the Bible. We see human jealousy as negative because it is usually contaminated with sin, but the Bible says that God is a jealous God ? and that this is a good thing!
