From the Bible s opening scenes in the garden of Eden where God walks with his creatures in the cool of the day, to the final heavenly vision of St John's Revelation where God comes permanently to dwell among us, the entire biblical story is driven by God s passion to be close to the people he created. But people have rarely shared God s enthusiasm for this divine-human relationship. Rather, it is in our nature to resist God s good intentions and to make gods of ourselves. The solution to this quandary? The prophets. Paul Hedley Jones walks readers right through the Bible in a series of 17 studies in the lives of biblical prophets, including Moses, Deborah, Nathan, Elijah, Daniel, John the Baptist and many others. Each study focuses on a few chapters of biblical narrative in order to explore a different aspect of prophetic spirituality (e.g. prayer, wisdom, speech, faith, integrity, humility, etc). In so doing, Jones demonstrates how God raises up prophets to be men and women who negotiate the divide between God s good intentions and the wilful resistance of his people. All of the virtues studied are brought together in the chapters about Jesus, who not only fulfils numerous OT prophecies, but also the prophetic vocation itself (the calling to embody God's passion and make him known). As a whole, this book illuminates the critical role the prophets play in God's overarching purposes for his creation and suggests how we in the 21st century may also learn to collaborate with God. Sharing God's Passion is an excellent resource for Christians who wish to engage with Scripture and embody God's passion as his prophets did so faithfully.
