Product Description

Kindness has fallen on hard times. Almost daily, we witness or experience cynicism, impatience, or incivility. And it begins to wear on a soul. Overall, we're not doing well. We need hope. We need truth. We need God.

In The Kindness of God, pastor and teacher Nate Pickowicz shows how our lives must be understood and lived in light of God's kindness. Pickowicz brings the reader along a joy-filled journey of discovering God's life-giving lovingkindness and compassion.

This book is for Christians overwhelmed with their life circumstances. It's for anyone who is feeling disappointment or hurt from a fractured relationship. It's for all those who are discouraged by caustic political discourse. And it's for those who are saddened or frustrated, desiring more from life . . . more from God. This book offers biblical salve to spiritual wounds and answers how God's own character remains intact even when wounds are inflicted by others.

You will come away from this book, marveling and thanking God for His immeasurable kindness. And you will come to reflect His kindness more deeply in your own life toward others. In a world that can feel dark and cold, this resource is a light of God's kindness!

"Nate Pickowicz's wonderful volume The Kindness of God is refreshment for weary souls. He has tackled the subject of the goodness of God as reflected in His manifold kindnesses to undeserving sinners in the same spirit as the Puritans of yesteryear: deeply pastoral, rich in Scripture, and profound in application. If you are struggling with how good God truly is while living in a cruel world or simply need to be reminded of the broad expressions of His lovingkindness in every area of your life, then this book is for you! Devour its contents and find nourishment for your starving soul."

"A sweet encouragement for weary souls! In a world filled with so much suffering and cruelty, the message of The Kindness of God comes as a welcome balm. God is not withholding or reluctant in His goodness toward His people; He is kind. Pickowicz helps readers grasp just how thoroughly the theme of God's kindness penetrates the Scriptures and overflows to every area of our lives. Highly recommended!"
Reagan Rose

"In a world that equates kindness with mere niceness, this book is a biblical corrective. Pickowicz shows from Scripture that God's kindness is a merciful expression of His goodness—that is, the unchanging standard of what is right and pure. In The Kindness of God, we are reminded that our Father loves to give good gifts to His children—especially the gift of His lovingkindness toward us in every circumstance and season of our lives."
Abigail Dodds

"The Kindness of God is a refreshing cup of cold water in the shallow, arid climate of twenty-first-century American Christianity. This is a book of rich theology, overflowing with Scripture, that reads like a novel. It is deep yet engaging, simple yet smart, strong yet encouraging, insightful yet practical. Following along with Pastor Nate as he explores the theme of God's kindness throughout the Bible will do your soul well, as it has mine!"

"As I read this book by my friend, Nate Pickowicz, I was greatly encouraged and refreshed in my own soul by the truth that God's kindness toward me in Christ is unending. As The Kindness of God shows, God's kindness toward His children is one of those truths that ravishes the Christian mind. It leaves us spellbound by the sweetness of His mercy and grace toward undeserving sinners. Pastorally speaking, I think it is one of the great truths of which we need to be reminded of again and again. So I am thankful for this book, and I hope it gains a wide reading. Its message is desperately needed."
