Publisher's Summary

"There aren't many questions in life that if you find the answer to them, it can change everything. But asking who God is and what he is like are two of those questions, and John Mark Comer brilliantly answers them in this book." (Jefferson Bethke)

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 you line by line through Exodus 34:6-8 - 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. 

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, 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.

An Incredibly Important Book!

Whether you have been a Christian for decades, are new to the faith, or are just curious about what is different about Biblical faith, this book will unlock the truths found in an overlooked but pivotal passage from Exodus. I have listed to it through four times. With John Mark Comer doing the reading, I felt like I was sitting with him. I don't have the words to describe the impact this book has had on my heart and mind.

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.

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.

A stunning insight on who God really is

John Mark unravels some of the age old mysteries of God and questions so many have about the wrestle of good, evil, compassion and wrath; with a wonderful conclusion of God’s overwhelming love and compassion, even through, or because of His justice. This is a must read.

True Worship

God has a name! This book has indeed helped me to see God in His true light, and makes my worship even truer. Indeed, the picture of God we have affects our worship of Him.
Pastor John Mark's narration of his own book is simply spot on! I don't think anyone could have done it better!

One of the most enjoyable books I have ever read!

I don’t often write reviews unless something blows me out of the water but this book is amazing! One of the best books I have ever read/listened to! The casual style of writing makes it seem much more conversational and easy to follow. The fact that it was read by the author as well really enhances this! The book is about Gods name, his character! Amazing content. Helps you fall in love with God that little bit more, much more actually! Helps take away that stigma of the angry grumpy God of the Old Testament and see him like Jesus, how their characters are the same, not different. Just beautiful! I have no doubt I will return to this book again and again! Really loved it!

Just bought the authors book on the elimination of hurry! Really looking forward to hearing more from him! Thanks so much John Mark Comer and well done! What an absolute blessing this was!
