"A mini-theology that breathes lifestyles! Justin Roberts's Behold Our God is contemplative non secular theology at its top. It achieves his objective to bridge the intersection of the 'scandalous particularity' of the revelation of God in Christ, and 'the attestation of the glories of God' which circulate via construction in a fashion that succeeds in making them 'harmonious dancing partners.' And it's written fantastically, evoking ask yourself and doxology. Your non secular formation should be deepened through this read!"
