Summary

Portrait of God is an engaging guidebook for modern-day believers that uses the stories of influential Christian figures – such as C.S. Lewis, St. Augustine, and William and Catherine Booth – to help Christians today find stability in their faith in a challenging world.
 
Are you struggling to see God? Does His face or character seem out of focus or incomplete? Portrait of God seeks to construct a vibrant painting of God by spending time in the stories of men and women who faced similar struggles in centuries past.
 
Each chapter explores an attribute of God through a person in church history who radically experienced His nature, applying it as a brushstroke to our portrait. Here you’ll discover:
  • Faith: how an all-powerful God worked miracles in the life of Kathryn Kuhlman,
  • Holiness: what Augustine of Hippo’s life in a secular world teaches us about God,
  • Compassion: how William and Catherine Booth’s service to others radiated God’s love,
  • Five additional retellings and reflections from author Jack Mooring. 
Portrait of God includes a foreword from Michael W. Smith, thought provoking questions, and a list of further reading about each faith leader. As Jack writes, “The Christian life is less about learning and more about remembering.” When our spiritual life feels like a rollercoaster, true stories of faithful Jesus-followers help us rediscover our wonder about the unchanging character of God.
