Overview of Crucifixion of the Warrior God

Overview of Crucifixion of the Warrior God

Greg reviewed the content of his new book, Crucifixion of the Warrior God, as a part of the Woodland Hills Church Covenant Partner gathering on March 5, 2017. If you want a fairly succinct synopsis of the thesis of his book, look no further.

Ten years ago, Greg set out to write a book justifying the violent portraits of God in the Old Testament. He quickly gave up on that endeavor and instead found a way to see how these violent portraits point to the crucified Christ in ways that you might not expect. The two-volume academic work is set to release next month, and the popular version (Cross Vision) will be coming out in August.

God is Love: Full Stop

Not many Christians would disagree that God is love, but many would quickly qualify that with some other kind of attribute such as justice. But love is not just one of the attributes of God alongside all others. Love is the essence of all the attributes of God. If you’d like to hear the entire sermon, you…
