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 reader line by line through Exodus 34v6-8—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.
Don’t get sucked in by what you read in the Sample. This author is unbalanced, heretical, and out to lunch. He takes portions of Scripture and twists them to fit his own demonic agenda. He claims God changes His mind and arrogantly states we are able to help Him do that. God does not change His mind; His perfection refutes that. The author also claims the other “gods” that ancient civilizations worshiped actually exist as “invisible spiritual beings", when they are merely figments of a sinful and rebellious mind. Don’t waste your money on supporting this false prophet.
