Thinking of Him
Rev. Paula J Behrens
In her brief, but concisely written and organized book, Thinking of Him, Paula Behrens has done the faith community a great service. In direct, layman terms, free of academic jargon, she has provided both a theological primer and a catechism of what C. S. Lewis has called "mere" Christianity. Though Behrens writes from a Methodist perspective, her book affirms all the key doctrines of the Nicene Creed (Trinity, Incarnation, Atonement, Resurrection) and, as such, should be accepted by all orthodox believers. Some may wish to add to her primer, but there is nothing that can or should be taken away. She is to be commended in particular for her clear treatment of the three persons of the Trinity, her affirmation of the Church and sacraments, and her discussion of justification, sanctification, and prevenient grace - which affirms fully the sovereignty and prerogative of God while not robbing man of true freedom of choice. Both orthodox and accessible, Thinking of Him will help Christians to know what they believe.
