Since the very beginning of the Church Christians have taught and believed that God was revealed by Jesus as Father. Over time they came to define this in their creeds. Yet sadly in many ways the knowledge of God as a real and personal father was lost to the vast majority of the church. Along with this many other personal aspects of Christianity were lost to ordinary people as the centuries passed by. In the last few hundred years however a change began to take place as key biblical truth was rediscovered by people. This has reignited life into a moribund church.
This book follows a journey through 2000 years of the history of the church looking at how generation after generation the church lost key biblical truth including the knowledge of God as a loving father. The author then charts the restoring of this forgotten truth back to the body of Christ right up to the present day. It’s primary focus is the revelation of God as Father that is becoming widely talked about and taught in the church today, to the rediscovery of sonship and how this results in us living as sons and daughters.
