What GOD Believes About YOU
A fresh look at the gospel.
How can a God of love send people to hell who have never heard of his son? The gospel is not only the news that I can receive Jesus into my life, but the good news that I have been included in him.
Peter examines some of scripture’s apparent puzzles, focusing on the meaning of the gospel and how God now sees us in the light of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Carefully examining scriptures about heaven, hell, and God’s kingdom, and dispelling common myths, he shows how the teachings of Jesus reveal the heart of our heavenly Father and his passionate relationship with humanity.
…a plethora of insights and aphorisms which I have enjoyed and by which I have beneﬁtted in my walk with Jesus.

Endorsements and Reviews
Roger Forster, Leader of Icthus Christian Fellowship
Peter Wilks’ valuable hard work embodied in this book. What GOD Believes About YOU contains a plethora of insights and aphorisms which I have enjoyed and by which I have benefitted in my walk with Jesus.
However, this is a book of unusual perspective, to be read with critical care and discrimination, remaining open to alternative conclusions from these well-honed theological nuggets, but never to be dismissed with popular, ill thought-through, traditional reactions. Thank you, Peter, for a good read, challenge and stimulus to worship.

“How we see God and how we imagine God sees us dramatically impacts the lives we live. Is our God tonic or toxin to the soul? Peter Wilks graciously offers us a way to see God and ourselves through divine love, rather than dispassionate belief.”

Peter Wilks challenges us to re-examine an issue which, for many, is fundamental to evangelical theology. Through careful research and applied biblical integrity, he presents an alternative perspective which is personally affirming, theologically enlightening and spiritually inspirational. A most important read for every Christian.

“What GOD Believes About YOU, like a laser beam, focuses us on the sound of God’s heart pounding for each of us. It reveals to us the ‘now Word’ for our generation and the ‘timeless Word’ of His eternal purpose. Each sentence needs to be pondered, not simply read (even in the appendix sections!) There are times you will ponder a thought and find yourself wanting more. Peter Wilks unveils to us that the Christian life is a life of continual discovery of “…what God believes to be true about yourself and delighting in it.” A wonderful ‘must read’!”

Have you always found it difficult to marry a God of LOVE with what has been taught regarding heaven and hell? Have you wondered how such a God of LOVE can allow men and women to suffer eternally? Then this book by Peter Wilks is for you.
Peter brings a depth of understanding to a God of LOVE, … the character and nature of GOD and … of heaven and hell; reinvigorating your love and passion for God, yourself and humanity, whilst bringing a fully orbed understanding of heaven and hell.
Peter Wilks makes a breadth of theological study accessible, enlarging and refreshing. Understanding and perspectives will be enlarged as you read through the pages of this book; be prepared to see with fresh eyes.
