I'm not sure I share his eschatological views. What I do resonate with, though, is the idea that God's agenda to bring his kingdom, and his king, to earth is a relentless pursuit.
So many say the God of the Old Testament is wrathful and grumpy compared to the loving God portrayed in the New Testament. Such uninsightful baloney is arrived at in part through selective viewing and misunderstanding of what's been read. Ergo the title.
Roberts does a good job of showing that everything God does throughout history is motivated by love and care. The fall of man that led to the rise of violent civilizations required counter-measures that seem harsh and cruel by today's standards. That we have standards at all, however, is evidence of the forward progress of his agenda.
Again, Roberts makes this clear through his well-written, thoughtful, engaging and easy to read book. He inspires much renewed hope in unifying the Bible's message and focusing God's loving intentions throughout history into a laser sharp point.
I a Christian who attends church, follows along in the Bible during church, enjoys Christian music, prays and believes. I've attempted to read the bible, or at least parts of it. I have a Bible Study book, which helps about as much as my children's versions do (regarding understanding the layout and overall big picture).
This book is a game-changer! This book is helping me to gain a deeper understanding of the overall Bible, how it relates to today and the past, why I should even read the entire Bible, and even better, HOW to read it. (Better than any Bible study group I've ever attended. ) I also find it extremely easy to read and enjoyable.
The diagrams are very helpful for visual learners, displaying the progression of God's Kingdom. This book was a very good resource for teacher's training.
Many other views cut the Bible in pieces and bring a skewed focus on the 'piece' we're in today. This has worse implications that I won't describe in an amazon review. Vaughan's book gives the solution and therefore solves many problems that other "split-up-theologies" create.
I don't know if it was the author's intention to fix these problems, but his book does and that's huge. I recommend this book both for those who want to go deep as well as folks who just want a simple overview. It has both, in my opinion.
Thanks Mr Vaughan!
