See God for Who He Is, Not What You Think He Ought To Be

Anyone who has tried to describe God to someone else, especially an unbeliever, knows that it is easy to find yourself at a loss for words. It seems that this part of our lives, which we claim is central, is often difficult to put into words. But if you know God, shouldn't you be able to describe him? What is he like? How can we put his eternal attributes into words?

Join Chip Ingram in this fascinating study of seven attributes of God: his goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love, and faithfulness. Readers will see God in a whole new light and discover that our view of God impacts every decision in our lives. It will change the way we pray, the way we live, and the way we think about the world around us.

God longs for us to know him as he really is. Get ready to meet God again for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this down-to-earth exercise in evangelical theology, Ingram, a radio show host and CEO of the Atlanta-based organization Walk Through the Bible, makes the case that understanding the character of God as He reveals Himself is the most important task facing new Christians and seasoned believers alike. Noting that his analysis is meant to be devotional and practical rather than comprehensive, Ingram focuses on seven traits attributed to God: goodness, sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love and faithfulness. Although Ingram relies on the work of evangelical heavyweights like C.S. Lewis and A.W. Tozer to make his points, his primary sources in answering questions about such conundrums as why God allows suffering or the nature of Christ's sacrificial atonement for sin are the Old and New Testaments. One caveat: though Ingram's style is accessible and often engaging, his methodical and rather pedagogical style may narrow his potential audience to readers comfortable with the traditional language of conservative apologetics. Suitable for personal or group study, the end of each chapter on God's attributes includes an inspirational quotation, a prayer and a devotional anecdote. (Aug.)

I first read Chip Ingram's Invisible Warfare for a group Bible Study and it was very enlightening. I decided to read another of his books. God As He Longs For You To See Him sounded interesting so I bought it. WOW what an awesome insight into seeing GOD. I've been a Christian for 46 years and I was floored by his excellent coverage of God's Character attributes. It is a life changing experience! Don't miss out on this blessing!
