God Has a Name Read Online Free - 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.

I'm torn between really liking the content of this book and hating the style in which it was written. It reads like a book-length blog post, complete with single-sentence paragraphs, words and phrases in bold fonts, and super cheesy asides.

Brilliantly deconstructing Exodus 34:6-7, John Mark Comer introduces the reader to Yahweh’s self-description in a way that shines a blindingly bright light on the character of Yahweh. Comer’s writing style is extremely conversational, which — at times — was a bit distracting, but in no way did it...

Loved it. Some of the style/language got to me after awhile but he pointed things out in ways I’ve never considered, and Biblically. I needed a book on God’s character and this is that. Will read again and again.

Read this book. Then again and again until your eyes roll into the back of your head. If you thought you had a good idea of who God is... think again.

Maybe the truth is that we want a God who is controllable because we want to be God. We want to be the authority on who God is or isn't and what's right or wrong, but we want the mask of religion or spirituality to cover up the I-wanna-be-God reality.
Comer takes the verses of Exodus 34:6-7 for u...

“What Yahweh wants is a living, breathing people to put his name on display. To show the world what he is like, not only by what we say, but by how we live.”

This was one of the most refreshing theological books I have ever read. Comer presents some really interesting and thought provoking ideas and presents them in a very compelling and unique style.

John Mark Comer addresses the concept of who God is with pretty solid theology and a super great font. His end game is awesome, and something I would recommend that every believer read. I didn't find it to be a quick read- it was a bit long, hence the four stars. I would recommend this book to ne...

This book is a refreshing call to grapple with the character of God. We carry His name, so we should really understand and reflect the character of the name we carry. Read this book, and then re-read it. I certainly plan to.
