Publisher's Summary

Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if he's more of an idea we believe in our head than a person we relate to. But God has a name: Yahweh. This one simple idea has the potential to radically alter how you relate to God, not as a doctrine, but as a relational being who responds to you in an elastic, back-and-forth way.

Why do we feel this gap between us and God? Could it be that a lot of what we think about God is wrong? Not all wrong, but wrong enough to mess up how we relate to him? What if our "God" is really a projection of our own identity, ideas, and desires? And what if the real God is different, but far better than we could ever imagine?

This book is a simple, but profound guide to what God says about himself. In his signature conversational-but-smart style, John Mark Comer takes the listener line by line through Exodus 34 v6-8 - Yahweh's self-revelation on Mount Sinai - called by some scholars the one most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible. In it, we see who God says he is.

It turns out, who God is just might surprise you, and change everything.

fantastic

A breath of fresh air exploring who Yahweh actually is, not just who I thought He was. He is so much bigger. Mr Comer did a great job writing this book and reading it. I hate it when people loosely toss the term "life changing" around, but this book can be.

Highly Recommend

John Mark has a way of writing that makes you feel as if you were sitting across from him at a coffee shop, having a conversation. He breaks down passages of the Bible, making it relatable to modern times and easy to digest for the reader. I highly recommend.

Stunning

The study and research time put into compiling this book is astounding! It had me on the edge of my seat all the way through. I love that the author read the book for Audible. He was able to put his enthusiasm and voice into every word making it flow and easily understood.

Easy to follow

The author puts forth some thoughts that are not the standard, western-Christian church thoughts we normally have, which I find nice. He narrates his book quite well, making it easy to follow enjoy.

Wow!

An incredibly thought provoking book that will challenge you and make you rethink many things you thought you knew about who the God of the Bible (Yahweh) is. JMC has been blessed greatly as an author and narrator!

I would highly recommend buying a hard copy of the book to accompany this recording. The book has some helpful illustrations in it, so I would recommend the combo of audio and text to anyone looking for the complete experience.
