We use clichés and catch phrases every day of our lives in every area of life, including our walk with God. Some of the most common clichés of the Christian faith are words such as holiness, wholeness of heart, sanctification, the deeper walk, purity, cleansing, and Christlikeness. Great clichés, but what do they mean? What is their context?
Through a reflective engagement with Scripture, The God Plot invites readers to move beyond these familiar clichés and participate in something much bigger: the narrative of God with its unique setting, divine call, dilemma, heightening dilemma, and resolution. The reader will be introduced to two dominant voices in the Bible that imaginatively and creatively unfold the plot of God: the prophetic voice and the priestly voice.
Throughout The God Plot, readers will be invited to leave the spectator’s balcony of familiar clichés and become participants in what God is doing in the world and desires to do in the lives of believers. For clergy and laity alike, familiar words and clichés will be placed back into the plot of God, and there readers will envision their encounter and journey with God with a renewed holy imagination grounded in solid biblical study.
