God in the Whirlwind.
I always enjoy and am challenged by books published by Crossway and when I saw this book was available, I requested a review copy.
This book is a journey into an understanding of the character of God. The author contends that it is easy for us to think we understand “God is Love” but not that “God is Holy.” He shows that these two characteristics of God cannot be separated. It is God’s Holy-Love that we need to understand.

Building on years of research, writing, and cross-cultural ministry, renowned author and theologian David Wells calls our attention to that which defines God’s greatness and gives shape to the Christian life: the holy-love of God.
In God in the Whirlwind, Wells explores the depths of the paradox that God is both holy and loving, showing how his holy-love provides the foundation for our understanding of the cross, sanctification, the nature of worship, and our life of service in the world. What’s more, a renewed vision of God’s character is the cure for evangelicalism’s shallow theology, with its weightless God and sentimental gospel.
Written by one of evangelicalism’s most insightful minds, this book will help you stand firm in your faith despite the changing winds and raging storms of the modern world.
