The Finger of God
How God's Existence Impacts upon Humanity

Vincent John Delany

Vincent John Delany is an Honorary Fellow of Bath Spa University. He is Chairman of the Into Africa Trust, Associate of the Michaelus Guild of the Froebel Institute, and Secretary of the Tendring Branch of Gideons International. He is a former Governor of a number of university colleges, and member of the Christian Service Training Council. He was also closely involved with the Centre for British Teachers and the Scripture Gift Mission (now Lifeword), and Advisor to the Open Theological College.

 

The Finger of God sets out to describe how God's existence impacts upon humanity. All people are implicated in an unfolding Divine Plan governing their individual destiny, and that of Planet Earth. This Divine Plan's outworking and inevitable fulfilment is discussed from a biblical perspective, with especial reference to contrasting actions and narratives of good and evil. Prime themes are the issue of separation between Man and God, occasioned by disobedience; divine overtures, often overlooked; and the potential for reconciliation. The context for discussion is the issue of Christian religiosity - how it is viewed and practiced not only by the Christian world at large, but also by its formal practitioners and religious leaders. The constant reality of a spiritually present dynamic kingdom is contrasted with the contradictory discordant voices of visible churches. A fundamental thread throughout the work is the necessity to promote doing the right thing (what the Bible refers to as righteousness) - toward our fellow human beings, and especially to God - rather than to follow mere religious precepts. Transformation is brought about by recognising that the incarnation, death and resurrection of Jesus lies at the heart of salvation and immortality. A reasoned guide is presented as to ongoing and future conflicts between light and darkness, and under what circumstances a righteous divine victory will emerge whereby God's intentions are successfully implemented in a new, perfect environment for the eternal benefit of humankind.
