The Misunderstood God
The lies religion tells about God
An awful lot gets said about God, pounded from pulpits, and popularized in phrases, but ‘Is it true?’ Is that what God is really like? Sadly, to scare people into compliance, religion often disfigures the God of the Bible by distorting His essential nature. Many of us have been bombarded by so many contradictory teachings and doctrines that our understanding of God resembles a tightly tangled ball of Christmas tree lights that don’t all work. The Misunderstood God throws out much of that twisted mess and replaces it with the soft, warm light of truth, and does so by looking at the very heart of love as defined by the Bible itself.
From the publishers of The Shack comes a provocative book that further unveils the unfathomable love and grace of God. Author Darin Hufford takes us on a step-by-step journey through one of the most well-known and beloved scriptures around the world – 1 CORINTHIANS 13, the “Love chapter” – and reveals to us the very heart of God for the personality portrait it is, for above all, the simple and profound truth is that God is LOVE.
People who have spent years searching for the truth about Him can finally discover that perhaps they have known Him all along. The Misunderstood God makes things simple again, showing us how finding God is as easy as learning what love means. His character and personality is the very definition. This book gives the reader permission and confidence to trust what they already know about God by deepening our understanding of what love truly is.
Thankfully, there’s more to God than meets the religious eye. He is altogether wonderful!
