Jesus said, "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father" (John 14:9). He and the Father are one in their love, joy, and desire to bless.

In Embracing God as Father, Daniel Bush and Noel S. Due show us what God has done, is doing, and does every day as he speaks his Word into our hearts. God searches for the lost and weary to save us, adopt us into his family through Christ, and make us sons and daughters of the one and only Father. This theologically rich and deeply personal book helps us see God as he truly is and see who we are as his sons and daughters.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Writing out of significant personal and pastoral experience, Daniel Bush and Noel Due have drawn on the riches of Scripture and biblical theology to present a captivating portrait of the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ and, thus, of the Father of every believer in Christ. Daniel and Noel's honest, warm-hearted and hope-filled book offers rich encouragement to all who long to experience more of the liberating reality of God as Father."
--Rev. Dr. Alistair Wilson, Principal, Dumisani Theological Institute, King William's Town, South Africa
"This book brings blessing because Daniel Bush and Noel Due understand that our adoption by God is more than a doctrine. Embracing God as Father opens for us the loving heart of the Father toward his children. God's love then becomes the passion and power forging new spiritual life in believers who live with God as their Father through faith in Christ."
--Rev. Josiah Bancroft, Director of Mission, World Harvest Mission, Jenkintown, Pennsylvania
"Here Daniel Bush and Noel Due share, in a pastorally helpful way, great biblical truths that have formed a significant part of their thinking, preaching and teaching throughout years of Christian ministry across several continents. This book should help those who struggle to believe that the Father's love is for them and that he could ever rejoice over them. Through reading this book, may the Father bring you to trust him confidently as Father, and to know the fullness of his joy and love through his Spirit and in his Son."
--Rev. Hector Morrison, Principal, Highland Theological College, Dingwall, Scotland
"I found Embracing God as Father to be deeply challenging. It helped me to see God not just as a distant 'being' but as a Father. I strongly encourage you to read it to better grasp the idea of God as the Father."
--Rev. Dr. Suresh Vemulapalli, Director, India Village Ministries, Andhra Pradesh, India
"Arising out of a deep engagement with the Scriptures and a first-hand acquaintance with the transforming love of the triune God, Daniel Bush and Noel Due have written a book that is both theologically rich and deeply personal. Here is a fresh retelling of the old, old story, set in the key signature of the New Testament--that of the Father's eternal purpose to turn lost and needy sinners into his own sons and daughters--that will warm the heart and put strength into weary bones."
--Rev. Rob Smith, Lecturer, Sydney Missionary & Bible College, New South Wales, Australia
"If knowing God truly is to know him as he has revealed himself to us, and if knowing God is the essential key to grasping our own identity, then knowing God as he is revealed to us by the Son means the unspeakably great privilege of knowing him as our Father. In Daniel Bush and Noel Due's sensitive, clear and penetrating book, we are brought back to a foundational understanding that we are sons and daughters of the Father because we are his in Christ the Son. When we get this, it changes everything: our worship, the cries of our hearts, our fears, our aims. Knowing the Father and ourselves as his children alters the way we view Christian service, the kind of congregations we develop and the way we present the gospel. I have seen so many people transformed by the teaching that Daniel and Noel bring, including myself. It has brought rest to my soul and sanity to my ministry. It has taken the anxiety out of my work and has given fresh joy in my marriage. It has altered my conduct of difficult meetings and my approach to people even more awkward than I. It has literally saved lives. I commend this book with the warmest personal appreciation of their long enjoyment and ministry of its message."
--Rev. Dominic Smart, Teaching Elder, Gilcomston Church, Aberdeen, Scotland
"Daniel Bush and Noel Due seek to introduce us to the Father they know. They could only say what they say because they know the love of the Father. This book could reshape your faith and your relationships."
--Rev. Deane Meatheringham, Minister, Mt. Gambier Uniting Church, South Australia, Australia
"What a treat is offered by this lively, vivid, joyful treatment of our hidden involvement in the life of the triune God! It reclaims something that has been largely lost in our time, the vision of God as the 'prodigal' Father which is granted to all His lost children through His one and only Son. With that too comes the wonderful vision of our participation in His sonship through the ongoing reception of the Holy Spirit, together with every other heavenly blessing, as the Father's provision for us as we hear the gospel and live by faith in His Son. How good it is to be assured that through faith all that belongs to Jesus now belongs to us!"
--Rev. Dr. John Kleinig, Prof. Emeritus, Australian Lutheran College, South Australia, Australia
