How human is God? Seven Questions about God and humanity in the Bible
AUTHOR Mark S Smith
Readers are invited to explore the Hebrew Bible and use their God-given ability to work through important questions about God, including: Why is God so angry in the Bible? Is the biblical God male or female (or what)? Who is Satan? Why do people suffer?
By exploring the Bible's answers to these and other biblical questions, Smith offers readers encouragement to "think from the heart"—that is, "intellectual exploration that is touched by the heart and also touches on matters of the heart"—about the nature of God.
Readers are further invited to nourish their vision of God in order to better know and serve God and humanity.
Mark S. Smith is professor of Bible and ancient Near Eastern studies at New York University
