Notable Reviews of “Schizophrenic God?”
Schizophrenic God? is a wake-up call! Steve C. Shank has provided serious students of the Bible an antidote to a sleepy, passive, and complacent church. His book gives a clear delineation of human responsibility in the face of demonic oppression and the need for active obedience to God along with forceful and intelligent resistance to satan so that God’s Kingdom can be established on the earth.

Along this journey called life, we are often hit hard and spun around by the winds of adversity. In these times, questions often arise that challenge our faith in the goodness of God. Steve C. Shank has presented in-depth evidence that when hardships, difficulties, and suffering invade our lives, it only comes from one source…the evil one. And just as convincingly, Steve has proven that the only Being in existence that is perfectly good is God. Not only is God good, but He is trustworthy, His Word is true, and we should always expect perfect goodness from Him. “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” (Psalms 34:8).

Steve C. Shank’s book, Schizophrenic God? Finding Reality in Conflict, Confusion, and Contradiction, is a must-read for any sincere believer. It is the best book I have ever read dealing with the subject of God’s sovereignty. Steve’s thorough use of Scriptures, quotes from the early church leaders, and real events happening today make this book come alive.
God has been blamed for way too much over the years, for things He never did. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17). This book will give you tremendous insight so you can properly discern what is from God, what is not, and how to stand firm in troubled times. A greatly needed book for the Body of Christ!

This book presents answers to tough questions many ask today about the character of God. Steve C. Shank brilliantly deals with this task. He does not give us religious doctrines or rules that many people follow and find never work – religion disappoints and never changes people’s lives. Steve paints a clear picture of the character of God as he discusses these important questions. The focus of this book is God and His goodness. After you finish reading this book I believe your desire and hunger to know God and have fellowship with Him will be greatly stirred. Isn’t this what really matters?
