Description
 

How can a loving God send people to hell? Isnt it arrogant to believe Jesus is the only way to God? What is up with holy war in the Old Testament?

Many of us fear God has some skeletons in the closet. Hell, judgment, and holy war are hot topics for the Christian faith that have a way of igniting fierce debate far and wide. These hard questions leave many wondering whether God is really good and can truly be trusted.

The Skeletons in Gods Closet confronts our popular caricatures of these difficult topics with the beauty and power of the real thing. Josh Butler reveals that these subjects are consistent with, rather than contradictory to, the goodness of God. He explores Scripture to reveal the plotlines that make sense of these tough topics in light of Gods goodness. From fresh angles, Josh deals powerfully with such difficult passages as:

  • The Lake of Fire
  • Lazarus and the Rich Man
  • The Slaughter of Canaanites in the Old Testament

Ultimately, The Skeletons in Gods Close uses our toughest questions to provoke paradigm shifts in how we understand our faith as a whole. It pulls the "skeletons out of Gods closet" to reveal they were never really skeletons at all.
