New Book: Seven Things A Loving God Hates

By Wayne Jackson

An old proverb quips, “bad people need to be good, and good people need to be nice.”

At times, a mountain of truth can be packed into a cup of words. That is the case with “proverbs.” They are small packages of wisdom; pearls of compressed truth.

The book of Proverbs is a library of such gems. In one segment of this gloriously inspired book, Solomon declared:

There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers (6:16-19).

A new book explores these seven traits/actions that are so detestable to the holy God of heaven. The title of this volume is: Seven Things A Loving God Hates. The author is Allen Webster.

Allen Webster is a widely known and highly respected gospel minister with more than twenty years experience. He is editor of the popular magazine, House to House, a journal that is read in nearly three million homes in forty-seven states and six nations.

This practical volume discusses the themes set forth in Proverbs 6:16-19 in great depth, and includes rich segments extolling the love of God as well.

Chapter titles are:

  • Looking for Love
  • A Proud Look
  • A Lying Tongue
  • Hands That Shed Innocent Blood (1, 2)
  • God’s View of Abortion
  • Abortion Wrongs
  • A Heart That Devises Wicked Imaginations
  • Feet Swiftly Running to Mischief
  • A False Witness That Speaketh Lies
  • He That Soweth Discord Among Brethren
  • The Devil Loves to Fish in Troubled Waters
  • A Loving God.

This book is both an instructive treatise and a ready reference work. Addressing a host of problems that plague modern society, the author has provided sound biblical instruction, profuse documentation, and scores of apt illustrations—all of which are conveyed in an engaging style.

I recommend this book enthusiastically. It would make a wonderful gift for a family member or friend who loves to read quality Christian literature. It constitutes an excellent thirteen-week study with thought-provoking discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

The price is a modest $7.95 (shipping $2; CA residents add 7.75% tax). Credit cards welcomed. Phone toll free – 1-888-818-2463.
