Arjan Plaisier’s motive for writingDeep Calls Unto Deep “derives from a deep love, and a passion. It is a declaration of affection for the unbounded generosity of God and, as such, a plea for belief as an appropriate response.”
To frame his exploration, Plaisier views, as if through a kaleidoscope, images and metaphors of God's revelation, man’s faith, the church, and the realities of truth, goodness, and beauty.
Though Plaisier, the Secretary General of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands, meant for his book to be devotional in nature, it might prove to be too academic for readers accustomed to less weighty fare. Nevertheless, he contributes many worthy insights into God’s magnificent love story and the necessity of a response from each person. (Wipf and Stock)
