God Is Not Nice

Full Product Description

  • Want to get away from misconceptions of God?
  • Ulrich L. Lehner cuts away the niceties human theology to get to the real God
  • Rarely will you find Catholic theology with such calling and insight
"One of those rare works that brilliantly diagnoses the errors of our time and responds to them with clarity and charity." - Brant Pitre, Catholic theologian and apologist

Ulrich L. Lehner reintroduces Christians to the true God—not the polite, easygoing, divine therapist who doesn't ask much of us, but the Almighty God who is unpredictable, awe-inspiring, and demands our entire lives. Stripping away the niceties with a sling blade, Lehner shows that God is more strange and beautiful than we imagine, and wants to know and transform us in the most intimate way.

With his iconoclastic new book God Is Not Nice, Lehner, one of the most promising young Catholic theologians in America, challenges the God of popular culture and many of our churches and reintroduces the God of the Bible and traditional Christianity. As Lehner writes in the book's introduction, "We all need the vaccine of the true transforming and mysterious character of God: The God who shows up in burning bushes, speaks through donkeys, drives demons into pigs, throws Saul from his horse, and appears to St. Francis. It's only this God who has the power to challenge us, change us, and make our lives dangerous. He sweeps us into a great adventure that will make us into different people."

This book is not safe. It may startle and annoy many people—including those who purport to teach and preach the Gospel, but are missing it, according to Lehner. God Is Not Nice intends to overthrow all of our popular misconceptions about God, inviting us to ask deeper questions about the nature of our lives and our relationship with him.

When you're finished with God Is Not Nice, you may find the idols you constructed in God's name smashed, replaced with a God who will ask you to live an entirely different life full of hope and transformation.
