Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if hes 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 34v6-8Yahwehs self-revelation on Mount Sinaicalled 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.
John Mark Comer is pastor for teaching and vision at Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon.

Dale5 Stars Out Of 5God Has A NameJanuary 30, 2018DaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was a REAL eye-opener for me!!! I've been a firm believer in God's name YAHWEH for many years, and actually make a point of collecting English translations which use His Name as HE inspired it into the Hebrew Scriptures. Sad that there are so few.
The book is centered around Exodus 34:6-7 where God emphasizes His Name YAHWEH to Moses and connects His Name firmly to His character and 'attributes'. It is no surprise to learn that Jesus the Messiah has this exact same character.
Mark Comer writes in a very 'contemporary' style, which I found annoying at first, but it grew on me in no time. Lots of space between the lines of text, and fairly short chapters which bring in a lot of additional Biblical and historical information. I saw Mark Comer being interviewed on "The Hour of Power" with Bobby Schuler last fall, which is where the book was discussed briefly. I decided to give it a shot - I was not disappointed!.
I HIGHLY recommend this book!
