The Living God draws us into an exhilarating exploration of who God is. We encounter a personal God who longs for a relationship with us; an almighty God whose greatness is simply beyond our understanding; a creator God, in whose image we are made; and a profound God who we discover to be three, yet one. This volume may be read as complete in itself, or with the other four titles in the series – Faith and the Creeds, The Living God, Lord and Saviour: Jesus of Nazareth, Spirit of the Living God and The Christian Life and Hope – to gain a thorough understanding of Christian belief. The approach Alister McGrath adopts is non-denominational, very similar to the ‘mere Christianity’ advocated by C. S. Lewis. Indeed, the series may be seen as a guide to ‘mere Christianity’, focusing clearly as it does on the life of faith. We look at why Christians believe what they do, how we can best understand these ideas, and the difference they make to the way we think about ourselves and our world.
