The Nearness of God: His Presence with His People (Explorations in Biblical Theology)

Burns, J. Lanier

Endorsements ()

Product Description

For many people, God is an abstract figure who set the world running but is now largely absent from it. Even Christians can fall into this trap of thinking. Academics spend their time merely talking about God. Churches exist for their own fulfillment. When this happens, God seems far away.

But in the Bible, God is not only center-stage; he is intimately involved with his people. Lanier Burns shows us that, at each stage of the unfolding story of God and his people, God's presence is never far away.
