“When our gaze awakens to the gaze of God, we have started to see. Seeing clearly, we can love well.”
Seeing with New Eyes is collection of essays written over almost twenty years by a respected biblical counselor. David Powlison’s articles are Bible exposition, topical essay, editorial, and sermon. All of them show God’s gracious self-revelation in Jesus Christ and Scripture.
“We learn to see how God sees,” writes Powlison. “Learning the gaze of God, we come to weigh life aright. We discern good and evil, fair and foul, lovely and degraded. We become able to pry apart true from false, instead of living in a murk of half-truths and flat lies.”
This book explores two main topics.
– Scripture: God’s voice speaks into real life to reveal the gaze and intentions of the Christ who pursues us. How do we embrace, probe, and unravel Scripture?
– Understanding people amid their real life struggles: How do we embrace, probe, and unravel the problems of daily life?
We learn how to see many of life’s struggles through the lens of Scripture, including
– Love languages
– Biological Psychiatry
Powlison encourages readers to “think Christianly” by thinking God’s thoughts after him. He asks, “Does God have a take on counseling? Of course, yes, amen.” This book seeks to listen, look, and think hard within the patterns of God’s gaze.
God has the real take on things. And God teaches us his gaze!
