In 2012 the Central Seminary faculty with Kevin Bauder wrote and published this book. The subtitle is “Meditations on knowing and loving God.” I found it to be inspiring and informative. It is not specifically a theology book on God, nor an answer to critics. Rather, it is a series of short essays on topics with special application to the believing reader. There are 38 essays arranged under 9 sections: The written Word of God, The purpose of God, Christ our Savior, Sin and salvation, The life of prayer and praise, The will of God, Testing and temptation, The communion of the saints, expectation. It is what I would call a “coffee table” book, that is, a book to be picked up and read from when particular things come into your life. The good news is that it is written by men you can trust and therefore read with expectation and not defense.
