What is God like? Toxic images abound: God the punishing judge, the deadbeat dad, the genie in a bottle-false gods that need to be challenged. But what if, instead, God truly is completely Christlike? What if His love is more generous, his Cross more powerful, and his gospel more beautiful than we've dared to imagine? What if our clearest image of God is the self-giving, radically forgiving, co-suffering Love revealed on the Cross? What if we had 'A More Christlike God'? Endorsements: "This excellent and much-needed book confronts with both open heart and very good mind the major obstacles we have created for people in their journey toward God! So many of us are asking, "Why didn't people teach us this many years ago?" I am so grateful that Brad Jersak is re-opening the door that Jesus had already opened 2000 years ago. It is so terribly sad that it was ever closed." - Fr. RICHARD ROHR Center for Action and Contemplation "With theological integrity and open-hearted compassion, Brad Jersak creates a beautiful space for Jesus to challenge our views of God. A breath of clean and clarifying air." - WILLIAM PAUL YOUNG Author of The Shack "Brad Jersak has given us a gift of greatest value: a fresh vision of God, Christ, the Cross, Scripture and ourselves. He displays the rare ability to take deep theological issues and make them understandable to everyone. Jersak represents a new generation of Christian theologians whose work is both desperately needed and wonderfully liberating." - BRIAN D. McLAREN Author of We Make the Road by Walking "Brad Jersak has immersed himself in the company of the poor, the addicted, the outsiders. He is determined to recover the essence of the "beautiful" gospel for all of us. The conspicuous mark that characterizes every page of this winsome witness is that it is a "lived theology." He has given attentive detail to what is in the theological libraries, but is not content with that. He has worked it out on the streets and in the lives of those with whom he has chosen to share his life and Christlike God witness, a convincingly beautiful Gospel." - EUGENE H. PETERSON Translator of The Message "'Good souls many will one day be horrified at the things they now believe of God.' George MacDonald's prophecy has found its fulfillment in Brad Jersak's journey from the 'volatile moral monster' to the face of Jesus' Father. Here the ancient song of light sings us new eyes: Behold the Lamb, just like his Father. A priceless treasure, worthy of serious reflection." - BAXTER KRUGER Author of The Shack Revisited and Patmos
