Water to Wine: Some of My Story | A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel | Bitten by a Camel: Leaving Church, Finding God | Cross Vision: How the Crucifixion of Jesus Makes Sense of Old Testament Violence | The Bible Tells Me So | A Farewell to Mars | Beauty Will Save the World
In his famous sermon âSinners in the Hands of an Angry God,â Puritan revivalist Jonathan Edwards shaped predominating American theology with a vision of God as angry, violent, and retributive. Three centuries later, Brian Zahnd was both mesmerized and terrified by Edwardsâs wrathful God. Haunted by fear that crippled his relationship with God, Zahnd spent years praying for a divine experience of hell.
What Zahnd experienced instead was the Fatherâs loveârevealed perfectly through Jesus Christâfor all prodigal sons and daughters.
In Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God, Zahnd asks important questions like: Is seeing God primarily as wrathful towards sinners true or biblical? Is fearing God a normal expected behavior? And where might the natural implications of this theological framework lead us?
Thoughtfully wrestling with subjects like Old Testament genocide, the crucifixion of Jesus, eternal punishment in hell, and the final judgment in Revelation, Zanhd maintains that the summit of divine revelation for sinners is not God is wrath, but God is love.
