There’s a news story that’s trending titled “Muslim migrant boat captain who ‘threw six Christians to their deaths from his vessel because of their religion’ goes on trial for murder.”  Of course the news of what the Muslim captain did to the six Christians are horrifying.  As usual all kinds of comments are spewed over the internet .  You waste your time reading all of it since some of them are just silly.

One comment that I couldn’t believe got 467 votes in eight hours stated the following:

Religious people always say that atheists lack morality, and yet I have never thrown anyone to their deaths.

Now I’m honestly amazed that this comment go so much votes.  It show that there are at least 467 people  out there who think this statement is profound (it is more actually, when one thinks that this is the net amount of votes after people’s downvote).  But for me this comment is sheer folly.  And I’m only responding to this because of how many people liked it.

This book is a great resource on a theology of God.  Those who have read other works by the author John Frame will find him on top of his game here as well.  This is a work that pastors and teachers would turn to as reference even after completing it.  I enjoyed reading this book in two separate instances: once when I was in seminary as something I had to read through rather quickly and the second instance being after seminary at a slower pace as part of my morning routine of devotional-theological readings.  I would recommend the second approach as the best way to read this volume.
