The Bible looks the way it does, complete with unsettling images of God ordering the extermination of whole people groups, because the stories are told from the point of view of the ancient people who wrote them.  So sometimes we may not be reading what God is like, but what the ancient writer thought God was like. Thoughts from Peter Enns from his book, The Bible Tells Me So, from chapter two, "God Did What?"
