"Making the Connection: Discovering Who God Really Is attempts to put the corrective lenses of scripture on the distorted view of God. John Telman writes like the pastor he is: with clarity, foresight, insight and a longing to see people make the life-changing decision to follow God. Deftly weaving real-life examples and scripture together, John creates a tapestry that depicts the whole of who God is."
- Robert White
A student once told his professor, "I don't believe in God" to which he was asked to describe the God that he didn't believe in. "I probably don't believe in him either," stated the wise teacher.
It is a sad fact that most people who do not believe in God have either an incomplete or false understanding of who the Almighty God is. This book, while valuable for such people, is not intended to be an apologetic, nor a defence. Simply, between the covers of this book is one man's observation's of God, who has made himself known.
It's more than eternal life that is at stake. It's fellowship with God. Life without the creator is empty; plastic and worthless. It has no meaning. Fellowship with God is more than knowing facts about God. It is life based on who God is. When anyone has relationship with God, they truly live.
