Sinners in the Hands
of a Good God is my personal inquiry into the nature of divine justice.
Writing out of an intense struggle to accept the Bible’s picture of a just but
loving God, I examine biblical teachings on God’s attitude toward sin, his plan
to punish the guilty forever, the relationship between grace and faith, the
meaning of Christ’s death, the change in status when we believe, and God’s
original purpose in creation. Only the Christian faith shows us God as he truly
is: perfectly holy and utterly uncompromising in his aversion to evil, yet
simultaneously loving and gracious beyond our wildest dreams.
