The Nearness of God: His Presence with His People
- J. Lanier Burns
God, for many people, is an abstract figure who set the world running but is now largely absent from it. Even Christians can fall into this trap. Academics spend their time merely talking about God. Churches exist for their own fulfillment. When this happens, God seems far away.
But in the Bible, God is not only center-stage; he is intimately involved with his people. Lanier Burns shows us that, at each stage of the unfolding story of God and his people, God’s presence is never far away.
