Why then do bad things happen? Where does that leave 'free will'? Does God choose us or do we choose God? What's the point of praying if God already knows what he's going to do? Orlando Saer tackles these questions - and more - in a straightforward and engaging way. If you sometimes struggle to understand the way God works in the world, or to explain it to others, you will find light here. You'll also be left with a new appreciation of just how big the God of the Bible really is.

This book is fresh, theologically acute and full of pastoral insight: I highly recommend it.

Phil Campbell, Senior Minister, Mitchelton Presbyterian Church, Brisbane, Australia

This is a very digestible read that covers quite meaty (and often head-scratching) questions. Misconceptions about the God of the bible - with one or two passages shoehorned to fit - are blown out of the water left right and centre, and God is see to be very big indeed. Although the 150 pages don't have all the answers (I came away with several new ones) the God of the bible is presented as utterly consistent with himself in the face of faiths big questions. Questions that interest the academy and the punter on the street. Particularly suffering and sovereignty, foreknowledge and control. It's the God of the whole bible we are presented with, rather than (what so often happens) the god of one isolated passage, which doesn't fit with the god of another isolated passage in the bible. Saer has done really well to cover such big topics in such short chapters and he is often very amusing in the process - especially if you come from a scientific background!

For an broad sweep of issues with great depth we get a flavour of the profound reality that is God.
