Not Just a Really Good Human

How the Book of Job Fixes Our Faulty View of God
  • By Dwight J. Olney
$16.49
($17.99)
Product Description

Humanity's biggest problem may be its least recognized: the tendency to imagine God as an extraordinarily good version of ourselves. If we fail to properly understand our Maker's nature, we have the potential to do many things wrong.


When we picture God as merely a really good human, we become less concerned about our sinful habits and more likely to doubt or malign him in the face of seemingly undeserved suffering. And when we fashion God in our image instead of the other way around, our theology in general and the counsel we extend to those who suffer becomes weak.


We naturally have a diluted view of God's deity. The Book of Job not only traces a great man's struggle to overcome this problem in his own life, but also beckons us to join in the fray to defeat this faulty and extremely dangerous vestige of fallen human consciousness.
