Brent is like many who had a problem with the view of the Old Testament God. But then he found that “Focusing on that New Testament God turned out to be the best decision I ever made. For, through the lens of the Cross, that maligned Old Testament God started looking more beautiful. The lies and darkness faded, and I began to see the truth. Instead of an arbitrary and vengeful god, requiring the blood of Jesus for appeasement and my obedience to the letter of the law, a God emerged that is more interested in my healing than in retribution, more interested in a trusting friendship than my legalistic sacrifices.”
He has some good articles and resources on his well-named website: http://healergod.org There is contact information on his website.
Brent has also written the book Tempting Jesus:
“The Root of the Trouble is Our Will. The struggle to surrender our will to God—to fight against self, selfishness, and self-preservation—is the fiercest battle that we will ever fight. The human will of Jesus was no different. It shrunk from God’s will as decidedly as ours. Without total submission to His Father, the fallen nature He inherited from Adam would have overcome Him as surely as it overcomes us.
This book portrays the battle Jesus fought each day on earth. It paints a picture of his tortured steps, a blueprint of the journey that each one of us must take back to God’s will. How do we win this war against our souls? Only a closer look at Jesus can show us how, a closer look explored within these pages.”
