God Has a Name

Full Product Description

  • Looking for a new voice exploring timeless truths?
  • John Mark Comer offers a revolutionary new way to understand the God of the Bible
  • God Has a Name gives you a new lens with which to read God's word
Yes, this is a book about God - who he is, who he's not, and the staggering implications of who we are as a result. But no, this is not just "another" book about God.

God Has a Name is shaped around one incredibly important paragraph in Exodus. In the well-known story of Moses interacting with God on Mount Sinai, Moses asks to see God's glory. But what God does - and says - is surprising and relevant for anyone who wants to understand God today.

Comer's fresh voice, creative and contemporary examples, powerful language, and deep respect for the scriptures open up the Bible and the story of God to reveal not only his character but how he interacts with us. And in the end, we will know how to "carry that name" ourselves and represent God in how we live.

For everyone who is trying to understand this God the Bible talks about, the church teaches about, and preachers preach about, this is the place to begin. Ground zero - where God himself tells us who he really is.

God Has a Name by John Mark Comer was published by Zondervan in April 2017 and is our 1776th best seller. The ISBN for God Has a Name is 9780310344209.

Endorsements

John Mark Comer’s God Has a Name is not just a book; it’s an experience. This book is more than just a nutritious delicacy; it’s an aesthetic experience full of passion and power, truth and imagination. He’s one of the few Christian writers who makes me want to read more (good) books and watch less Netflix.

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 Bible’s 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!

The best way to describe God Has a Name is if A. W. Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy and Rob Bell’s 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 we’ve underestimated the endless mercy of God in the Old Testament. Prepare to have your deepest assumptions about God’s character challenged in the best possible way.

“What is God like?” is the question one must answer. The Bible itself quotes Exodus 34v6–7 constantly. John Mark Comer’s 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 aren’t 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.

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! I’m not sure who will find this book more earthshaking---the jaded skeptic or the longtime religious! Either way, get this book.
