Book Description

10 Dec 2013
Is it possible that your view of God is too small? Too safe? Too tame? Too comfortable? Is it possible that you have settled for a low, uninspiring, limited view of God? Is it possible that your passion for God suffers because your vision of God suffers? In Untamable God, Stephen Altrogge brings us face to face with the magnificent, awe-inspiring, beautiful, terrifying, wonderful God of the Bible. In his personal, intimate, engaging, humorous style, Altrogge takes us on a journey through God's word, bringing us into close contact with the God of sharp edges and brilliant light. Altrogge introduces afresh to the untamable God of the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars true untameable God! 6 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Altrogge has a knack with words. But more that this. This is a beautiful description of life with God. A generous serving of gospel delight.
Here is a glorious vision of Jesus. Stephen Altrogge clearly believes that it's a crime to bore people with Jesus, despite this being our cultural default. Myths are deconstructed, unreality and error are engaged with in gentle but impactful ways. This is a robustly researched and strongly written new work. We are taken to the place of great truth, for 'when God dies to us, we die in ourselves.' Yet few authors let the scale of God remain gloriously beyond their measure, their language and their containment. Altrogge is one of these rare and precious voices.

The structure, spirit and close of the book for me were some of the best parts of this writing. This will cause you to be renewed in your confidence of Christ as Saviour and God.

Here is the God who 'breaks our vocabulary' who exceeds our biggest view of Him and just doesn't say love: He actually proves it. This is far beyond the shallows, its a compelling invitation to our "incredible, glorious, untameable God." This is full of engaging language, stimulating thought and searing theology. Top-class stuff.

Fresh, faithful and heartfelt.

I've nearly finished this book but couldn't wait to the end to write the review. I have found it both insightful and encouraging. Found it really useful for understand more of the nature of God and how that should shape the way we both regard and respond to Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant upto date and potentially lifechanging 24 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brings an up-to-date interpretation to a range of biblical accounts and enables us to appreciate how really tremendous and great God is. It is useful for those wishing to deepen their understanding and experience of God. It is also useful as a good discussion starter for those wishing to explore these issues with others.
