We all struggle at times to hold together the holiness and the love of God, and can fall into problems such as liberalism and universalism on the one hand, or legalism and moralism on the other. However, what David Wells calls God's 'holy-love' is right at the heart of the incarnation and cross of Jesus - and understanding how God's holiness is inextricably bound to his love is what sets apart Christian spirituality from other spiritualities, what characterizes authentic Christian worship, and what defines our life of service in the world.
Building on years of research and teaching, Wells offers a remedy for evangelicalism's often superficial theology and weightless conception of God. He examines and offers solutions to two particular problems facing the contemporary church: the pressure to conform to cultural norms, and the danger of living in an age of constant distraction.
This accessible, edifying and challenging volume helps us to cultivate a balanced vision of the meaning of God-centredness in our current context.
