"In this deeply personal and theologically provocative book, Professor Anderson explores the Soul of God and bares his own. Stories of pastoring and being pastored are woven into his reflections on Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, Christian suffering, and a multitude of other themes. The reader is invited along on a journey with authors like Kierkegaard, Bonhoeffer, Barth, and Torrance. The doxological character of the memoirs is reinforced by the titles of the chapters, most of which are named after classic hymns. John Calvin claimed that 'there is no knowledge of God without knowledge of self, and there is no knowledge of self without knowledge of God.' Anderson has embraced both sides of this dialectic, demonstrating that theology can be both existentially and intellectually compelling."

"'The Soul of God' is practically a 'greatest hits' collection of a lifetime of integrating theology and ministry. Ray Anderson has provided a fascinating tour of reflection on theological trends in the past while setting the agenda for a vigorous evangelical theology for the future. 'The Soul of God' is a unique experiment in autobiographical theology, mining riches from Anderson's experiences as a farmer, a pastor, and a professor, which cannot help but stimulate anyone seriously interested in the integration of theology and ministry, a field that Anderson has pioneered and continues to lead the way."
Christian Kettler, Professor of Theology and Philosophy, Friends University
