God has revealed many things about himself in his Word. But God’s manifold attributes shine most clearly in his Son, Jesus Christ, who came to reveal his Father. Through Christ’s saving work on the cross, we are able to know and worship God rightly.
This book aims to help us study and understand the attributes of God so that we delight in and love him with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Each chapter explains one attribute, shows how it is most clearly manifested in Christ, and provides practical application for the Christian life.
In twenty-seven concise chapters, God Is invites, equips, edifies, comforts, and challenges God’s people to know God better and love him more. This is Mark Jones at his best, combining his theological breadth and depth with his pastor’s heart.
—Rosaria Butterfield, Former Professor of English, Syracuse University
Most treatments of God’s attributes are like vast mining operations that use massive theological machinery to plumb the depths of divine revelation. Mark Jones hands us the diamonds of God’s perfections, already mined, cut, and polished, to enrich our souls immeasurably. Study this book, read it with your family, discuss it with your small group, teach it to your church class, and give it to your neighbor. This is a gem indeed!
—Joel R. Beeke, President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; Pastor, Heritage Reformed Congregation, Grand Rapids, Michigan; author, Reformed Preaching
Written in the tradition of J. I. Packer's Knowing God, Jones's work is an extremely helpful and needful primer on our great God and his all-beautiful character. Highly recommended as a tool for personal devotion or group study.
—Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history and Biblical spirituality at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
