Only God Will Save Us
SCM Press, 2020, xi + 240 pp., pbk
In Only God Will Save Us, Simon Cuff gives us a book that is ‘unashamedly theological’, but also incredibly readable, accessible and actually quite exciting. After all, drawing on the riches of Christian orthodoxy, this is a book about who God is, what God does, and what that means for the world and the lives we lead. Without doubt, this is an entry level book on the doctrine of God, but that is not a weakness. Instead, this could be viewed as an easy to pick up, pocket guide to the nature of God and the Christian life. It’s a page turner that leaves you wanting more, unpacking divine truths and providing ‘aha!’ moments of epiphany. But it also makes you think on after putting it down, and inspires you to action. Properly and well read, this book will lead the reader into the path of God and the transformative Christian life.
