Product Overview

God as Author takes a thoughtful literary approach to understanding the
Gospel. Gene Fant writes in the preface:

?Most of us have heard that Christ is ?the Author and Finisher of our faith?
(Romans 12:2), so it makes sense that the Gospel would be God?s story. As
many a church message board has noted so succinctly, ?History is His Story.?
In our easy discussions of special revelation, I cannot help but wonder if we
have missed something awe-inspiring that may be revealed by a reversal of
the lens that we turn toward narrative. Perhaps the Gospel is not just like a
story; perhaps story, narrative in general, is like the Gospel. My clear
conviction is that something stands behind the power of narrative. In fact,
I believe that Someone stands behind it. There is an Author whose skill and
grace imbues the broad range of the stories that we tell. There is a Father
who gave us a story to help us understand our place in this world, a story
that points back to Him. His story is, in many ways, the only story that we
know. When we use that realization as a foundation for interpreting and
generating narrative, it changes everything, including ourselves.?
