'God Lost and Found' - Helpful up to a Point.
on 4 July 2012
Except in the most general terms, this book hardly touches on the tragedy of real spiritual loss ('spiritual desertions') which not a few earnest Christians encounter, when they feel quite inwardly forsaken by God. This is something better dealt with by older writers such as William Perkins, Richard Greenham, Samuel Willard, Timothy Rogers, Voetius and best of all Wesley, in sermons such as 'The Wilderness State'. Nor am I sure this book would have gone down particularly well in the Early Church or on Calvin's table but nevertheless...
.. on a lighter scale altogether and addressed to the wider audience with a variety of spiritual needs, this book makes for interesting, entertaining and worthwhile reading. It offers much practical and intelligent advice and succeeds pretty well in achieving its aim. It is both helpful and encouraging.
