Recommended Reading on the Doctrine of God

This season at Servants of Grace, we’ve been considering the Doctrine of God. We are living in a time where this doctrine is either neglected, under attack, or greatly misunderstood. With this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, it was our hope that readers would grow, not only in their understanding of God and science but also the greater redemptive storyline of Scripture
