God's name is majestic. Wilderness Cry written by Hilary L. Hunt M.D. Dr. Hilary analyzes God in Three Persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the holy spirit.
This book tells readers not to trust what they are told or what they hear, rather only believes in the truth. Dr. Hilary knew God as a child based on what he was told. Failure to understand whom God is, urge him to research further. According to the idiom's dictionary, a voice crying in the wilderness means to say something that is not considered acceptable by a group of people or a society. Using a philosophical and scientific approach, he explains the attributes of God as Omni- everything! In Sunday School we were taught that God is omnipresent, omnipotent, faithful and never changes. Dr. Hilary gives his understanding of the attributes of God. God never changes, he wonders with confusion the reason God never changes and cannot be influenced, yet Jesus was asked to change water into wine. He also does not understand why He punishes people yet God is forgiving. These are purely his logical reasoning backed with science and gives readers the free will to believe in what they know, judge him not, this is only his account of God and the universe.
The author's biography is exquisite. Leaving no stone unturned, it is written, that he was raised in a house with a tin roof and no electricity. Reading about his life in Kentucky, you will realise that his writing has a sense of humour. The religion growing up as a catholic has changed and so as his understanding of God. Birth control was then a taboo, and Christians role was to multiply. I enjoyed reading this book and did not find anything wrong in it. Though one is left with more questions, it is advised reading it with an open mind. It is an absorbing and brief book, therefore It gets 4 out of 4 stars.
God truly exists, though no one can fully get to know Him, we seek wisdom to guide us learn more about Him. Knowing God takes faith and guidance from the Bible. God is caring, he fed the hungry, healed the sick. God gave us a guiding book, the Bible, which aids us readers to live a good life, loving our neighbours and fleeing from sin. God's commandments say do not to steal, kill, cheat and do not to commit adultery. If we readers adhere to this teaching the world would be a better place.
Wilderness cry is suitable for people who are on a journey to the kingdom of God and those studying about religion.
