Get to know God
As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. --Psalm 42:1
Does this describe you? Has your thirst for more intimate contact with God caused you to reach for anything and everything that will bring you closer to Him? Do you want to know Him as a friend, like Moses did, or capture His heart, like David did? In The Anatomy of God, you'll learn that God is not hiding from you. In fact, the Creator of all things desires more than anything to be seen, touched, and known by you
God is a Spirit, yet throughout Scripture, He describes Himself in anatomical terms and images we are familiar with. His eyes wink and squint. His mouth whispers, His smile radiates, and He inclines an attentive ear to our cries. God has hands, arms, and fingers that build, shape, give, protect, and deliver. His heart can be broken, and His nostrils flare when He is angry. His face reveals His glory and His favor.
The Anatomy of God is an invitation to see God at work in us, for us, and through us. With appropriate humor and humility, Dr. Kenneth Ulmer introduces us to the Father as we seldom see Him--touchable, emotional, and accessible. Ulmer navigates the seemingly unfathomable depths of the person of God with a pastor's care, a teacher's skill, and a preacher's passion, guiding us into deeper, more meaningful communion.
This book is for every man or woman who desires to know God or to know Him better. It is for anyone who questions God's closeness or doubts His concern. The Anatomy of God brings us closer to God by bringing God closer to us.
