A Masterful Presentation of God’s Divine Sovereignty
Who’s Your Father? Returning to the Love of the Biblical God by Robert Bernecker is a masterful presentation of God’s divine sovereignty. Bernecker carefully considers major misconceptions about God’s providence, man’s responsibility, free will, and the doctrines of predestination, election, perseverance and foreknowledge.
Bernecker’s writing combines the thoughtful analysis of a judicious theologian with the passionate heart of a pastor. He is persuasive and authoritative; his writing is balanced, Biblically sound, and worthy of note. He is a master at exegesis; as well as able to skillful in presenting practical application, devotional inspiration and motivation. He is meticulous in the documentation of his exhaustive research and is a devoted student of historical theology.
Writings from noted Theologians, including: Albert Barnes, J. I. Packer, Adam Clarke, John Wesley, C. H. Spurgeon, A. W. Tozer, A.W. Pink, and many others reinforce Bernecker’s conclusions. It is Bernecker’s desire that the reader will experience God’s love with a deeper understanding, be transformed in their relationship with Him, and cause them to reexamine their doctrinal biases.
Who’s Your Father? Returning to the Love of the Biblical God is worthy of careful reading and additional study. The format and approach of the material give the book added value for adaptation for small group study, adult church Bible classes, for inclusion on suggested reading lists and as curriculum for foundational courses in Bible Colleges.
