Publisher's Summary

Scary God brings you face-to-face with our Warrior-King God." (John Bevere, best-selling author of The Bait of Satan)

Discover the great wonder and wild freedom the fear of the Lord can bring.

God’s character is like a mighty diamond - a glorious convergence of respect, awe, reverence, adoration, thanksgiving, and yes, fear.

Yet why is it so difficult to reconcile the wrath of God with the love of God?

As Mattie teaches, it is simply a continual awareness of Jesus, our mighty Warrior King.

We should not be afraid to come to God; rather we should be afraid to be against Him.

Fans of Jefferson Bethke, John Bevere, and Brian Head Welch, will love the straight-talk in Scary God.

Going to buy a hard copy to read again

I'm glad I listened to the reading but I liked the book so well that I'm going to buy a hard copy to read as well. This is one book I'll want to read and or listen to more than once.

Good.

Starts strong, Mattie does a great job narrating. Just wish there was more meat and potatoes. Some good pointers in here, it’s definitely worth a listen if you enjoy any of his previous works(audio).

Needed

The modern church needs this word. Mattie starts with a personal experience of encountering the Fear of God. But he doesn't leave the book in the murky waters of personal experience; he runs quickly to Scripture and demonstrates what a right fear of God is. There is no wimping out here. No dumbing down of the fear of God. Mattie is quick to say that the Fear of God actually means to be afraid; not just kind or respectful. He discusses the benefits of a healthy fear of God and how we can practically build that into our lives.

While Mattie may fear God, he does not fear men or movements. He's not interested in the prosperity gospel or what he calls the popularity gospel. Instead, he pushes modern believers to authentically seek the Living God.
