The Skeleton’s in God’s Closet
THE SKELETONS IN GOD'S CLOSET
By Joshua Ryan Butler
Does God have skeletons in His closet? If He does, are the skeletons the same as we normally think of when we say someone had skeletons in their closet? This book by Joshua Ryan Butler should help answer these questions.
The author makes reference to caricatures, which is a distorted view of something, (such as a cartoon version of a celebrity), not a true view, a photograph, of that thing or person. Joshua explains how we view God as a sadistic torturer, cold-hearted judge and a genocidal maniac; then sets the record straight with the truth. He offers examples from life and makes it easy to understand the truth.
A quote from the book:
" As we shall see, not only does God not have skeletons, God Himself is good in His very bones: not just in what He does, but in who He is; not only in His actions, but in the architecture of His character, the beauty of His being, the depths of His divine affection for the world."
The author divides the book into three sections about Hell, Judgment and Holy Wars. At the end of each chapter, Joshua gives a key idea about that chapter. The information offered should help the way we see God, not a distorted view but a true view of who God really is.
