This Tuesday June 5, 2012 I had the privilege of being on the Knowing the Truth radio program with pastor Kevin Boling. During the course of our conversation we had the opportunity to discuss two subjects:

  1. The Gospel for Real Life booklet series for which I serve as editor through the Association of Biblical Counselors
  2. My latest booklet God’s Attributes: Finding Rest for Life Struggles

It was a great conversation where we had the opportunity to discuss the core convictions of the GRL booklet series, the events that motivated me to write this booklet, how we are all practical theologians (whether we give ourselves that much credit or not), sample several sections of the booklet, and work in an embarrassing story from my childhood baseball days.

Comments on the Attributes Booklet

“A. W. Tozer famously said that what we think about God is the most important thing about us. Brad Hambrick has provided the church with a deeply theological, yet practically helpful tool for exploring the attributes of God, helping us see Him more clearly and living in proper response. The cycle of ‘rest’ to ’emulation’ model he proposes is pure gold. This is a life-changing study.” –J. D. Greear, the Summit Church, Durham NC

God’s Attributes: Rest for Life’s Struggles will lead you into a study of the character and attributes of our God that will deepen your knowledge of the God we love and worship. In the process, it will guide you toward cultivating these character traits in your own life and to walk in faith before the God in whose likeness you are being transformed.” –Daniel L. Akin

“The gospel isn’t just an ethereal idea. It’s not a philosophy and it’s not static. It moves and shapes and transforms the lives of those who by God’s grace alone put their faith in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. I am grateful for ABC’s work of letting the Gospel bear its weight on these real life sorrows and pains.” –Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church
