"The True Justice of a Just God" is an inspired work, that will fill you with hope and love. Exquisitely written, it has a simplicity and graceful beauty in its style that is a rarity in this age; it is a joy to read not only for the power of its thoughts, but also for the words chosen to express them. Lawrence A. Panarello explains scholarly subjects in a way that is easy to understand, and describes the many forms of justice in biblical times: The Civil Court or Tribunal, the Elders, and the Daysman, or mediator. In Chapter 4, the Book of Job (which is often a stumbling block for readers and the reason many find it the hardest book in the Bible to grasp), is commented on superbly, and Chapter 5, "The Promised Daysman," is about how Christ Jesus intercedes for us, and is our "defense attorney." In Chapter 7, we read how the Holy Spirit is our constant daysman and comforter, to guide us and be our "legal assistant" as we walk in an unbelieving world.
"God, being a just and loving Father, will see that there is a true, final, and ultimate justice that will last for all time." (page 67)
This book is slender but mighty, and you get a lot to think about and meditate upon. From the introduction, where Panarello speaks of God as "the perfect judge, full of compassion and mercies," who "has chosen to look upon the heart," to the epilogue, where it is stated that our eternal future is with God who is "light and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5), one is inspired and made to consider how best to live a victorious life on earth, "with glimpses of the beauty of his presence and power."
"The True Justice of a Just God" also has a lovely layout that includes quotes that fit in with the spiritual theme by people like Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt, high quality paper, and a nice font size that is so easy on the eyes. This is a book that is instructive as well as encouraging, and would be a great addition to any Christian library.
