Why do many of us feel a 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 style, Comer take the reader line by line through Exodus 34:6-8--what some scholars argue is the most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible. It turns out, who God is just might surprise you--and change everything. Paperback.

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. He holds a Master's degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Western Seminary and is the author of two previous books: Loveology and Garden City. Comer is married to Tammy and they have two boys, Jude and Moses and a little girl, Sunday.
John Mark Comer is a master communicator. More important, he loves the Bible, listens to the Bible, and has learned from the Bible so deeply that what he teaches and preaches is soaked in the Bible. For that reason alone, John Mark has become an important voice in the American church. In God Has a Name, we are treated to nothing less than a panorama of the Bibles understanding of God on the basis of one of the most important---and often neglected---passages in the whole Bible. This book will bless your life because it will lead you straight to God!
After the first few pages of God Has a Name, I threw both fists in the air. After the third chapter, I felt like chest bumping everyone in the coffee shop. By the end of the book, I was Jack Black in the end credits of School of Rock. This book is electrifying! Im not sure who will find this book more earthshaking---the jaded skeptic or the longtime religious! Either way, get this book.
The best way to describe God Has a Name is if A. W. Tozers The Knowledge of the Holy and Rob Bells What We Talk About When We Talk About God had a love child who rebelled against her parents.
In an age when everyone thinks Jesus is on their team, baptizing their agenda, getting behind their ideologies, we have become a people orthodox unto ourselves. I am the measure of truth, everyone seems to be saying, and dissenters are to be burned at the stake. By the pen of John Mark Comer, we have a book that will pop our bubbles of arrogance. In the end, it provokes us out of our self-aggrandizement and beckons us into the throne room of worship. Recommended without reservation!
Using his unique voice, wonderfully disarming humor, and knack for theological paraphrase, John Mark Comer has crafted another challenging work that we pray will impact readers as significantly as it has our community in Portland.
John Mark Comer is a wise and stimulating guide who points out just how much weve underestimated the endless mercy of God in the Old Testament. Prepare to have your deepest assumptions about Gods character challenged in the best possible way.
What is God like? is the question one must answer. The Bible itself quotes Exodus 34v67 constantly. John Mark Comers contemplations will assist you to ponder what it teaches. Your mind, spirit, and heart will be transformed.
Across the Western world, there is a growing band of neighborhoods, cities, and towns that hold tightly to their progressive identities, resisting and rejecting Christianity as, at best, passé and, at worst, oppressive. John Mark Comer pastors from such a city---Portland---encouraging us to live a faithful, deep, and devoted life of discipleship. His is an important voice, one that helps us flourish as followers of Christ in contexts in which even the name of God is contested.
Despite the growing popularity of atheism, the vast majority of people say they still believe in God. But this God is often just a projection of their own values, morals, and ideas. This book is a simple yet profound guide to what God has said about himself. Who he says he is. And his true identity and character are both far different and far better than we could ever imagine.
There arent many questions in life that if you find the answer to them, it can change everything. But asking who God is and what is he like are two of those questions, and John Mark Comer brilliantly answers them in this book.
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!
