"God as Author" takes a thoughtful literary approach to understanding the Gospel. Gene Fant writes in the preface:
"Most of us have heard that Christ is 'the Author and Finisher of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2), so it makes sense that the Gospel would be God's story. As many a church message board has noted so succinctly, 'History is His Story.' In our easy discussions of special revelation, I cannot help but wonder if we
have missed something awe-inspiring that may be revealed by a reversal of the lens that we turn toward narrative. Perhaps the Gospel is not just like a story; perhaps story, narrative in general, is like the Gospel. My clear conviction is that something stands behind the power of narrative. In fact, I believe that Someone stands behind it. There is an Author whose skill and grace imbues the broad range of the stories that we tell. There is a Father who gave us a story to help us understand our place in this world, a story that points back to Him. His story is, in many ways, the only story that we know. When we use that realization as a foundation for interpreting and generating narrative, it changes everything, including ourselves."
