Is Your God Big Enough? Close Enough? You Enough? : Jesus and the Three Faces of God Paperback / softback
by Paul R Smith
This book presents a new framework for knowing the God of Jesus Christ.
It reveals, in biblical, experiential, and contemporary terms, the Three Faces of God.
These three dimensions of God uncover the bigger, closer, and more human God than many commonly understand and experience.
These have long been hidden behind the traditional words and images of the "Father, Son, and Spirit" of the Trinity. Others have presented parts of this path, or one or two Faces of God, but no widely recognized Christian group has yet fully integrated all Three Faces of God.
Most denominations, churches, and Christians hold to one or two of these and dismiss the other.
Most disagreement among Christian groups are over these three dimensions, arguing for one or two and against the other. The three-dimensional God that Jesus demonstrated is God-beyond-us, God-beside-us, and God-being-us.
This last one is least understood in the West. It is, in part, Spirit within, which is best understood biblically as divine-human consciousness in all its modes. This is a God who is big enough for our minds, close enough to our hearts, and us enough for, and as, our deepest identity.
