A History of God and His Friends

Finding God in the Bible by Darren Wilson: A Book Review

Darren Wilson introduces us to God's friends.  What a motley crew!  Adulterers, murderers, cowards, and weird people of all stripes--these are people God considers his friends.  Darren challenges us to have a friendship with God rather than an acquaintance.

God, of course, is more than a mere buddy.  As God, his friendship causes Him to test us, refine us, shape us, and change us radically.  Abraham was a great example of this process.  God's great love longs for friendship with those He created.

Look at Bible characters like David, Gideon, and Elisha in a new way.  Then get to know God in a deeper way.

I received a free review copy of Finding God in the Bible from Chosen Books.  I also received a copy of the DVD Father of Lights, in which Darren continues his mission of filming God at work in the lives of people everywhere.  See my review of Father of Lights here.
