From the Back Cover
God Does Not . . . challenges several widespread misconceptions of how God works in the world.
Joel Shuman reveals that although God does not wear a white coat and always cure, he always heals.
Daniel Bell argues that the logic of blood sacrifice permeates today's culture and challenges the notion of redemptive violence.
Kelly Johnson shows that the frenetic pace of daily life does not mesh with God's patient peace.
Does God write the perfect love story for each of us? Margaret Kim Peterson and Dwight Peterson help us see how our idea of God's plan for love and marriage is distorted by our desire for Hollywood happy endings.
Jason Byassee cautions against revering contemporary cinema too highly and concludes that God's church is where the action is.
And finally, D. Brent Laytham paints a picture of God's work in the world through the lens of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
A follow-up to the popular God Is Not . . ., this book is highly readable and provocative. In the end, we are left not with a negation of what God does, but an affirmation of a God who does all things well.

The author of this chapter Daniel Bell Jr, says that we are not let off the hook by a blood sacrifice to satisfy moral law and order. Christians follow another logic. We share in the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor 5:17-20). God does not find pleasure in the death of anyone (Ezek 18:32) and was willing to die on the cross because he desires live even for those who crucify him.
