Publisher's Summary

God Has a Name is a simple yet profound guide to understanding God in a new light - focusing on what God says about himself. This one shift 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.

In God Has a Name, John Mark Comer takes you line by line through Exodus 34:6-8 - Yahweh's self-revelation on Mount Sinai, one of the most quoted passages in the Bible. Along the way, Comer addresses some of the most profound questions he came across as he studied these noted lines in Exodus, including:

  • 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?
  • What if the real God is different, but far better than we could ever imagine?

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, the act of learning who God is just might surprise you - and change everything.

fantastic

A breath of fresh air exploring who Yahweh actually is, not just who I thought He was. He is so much bigger. Mr Comer did a great job writing this book and reading it. I hate it when people loosely toss the term "life changing" around, but this book can be.

An Incredibly Important Book!

Whether you have been a Christian for decades, are new to the faith, or are just curious about what is different about Biblical faith, this book will unlock the truths found in an overlooked but pivotal passage from Exodus. I have listed to it through four times. With John Mark Comer doing the reading, I felt like I was sitting with him. I don't have the words to describe the impact this book has had on my heart and mind.

Stunning

The study and research time put into compiling this book is astounding! It had me on the edge of my seat all the way through. I love that the author read the book for Audible. He was able to put his enthusiasm and voice into every word making it flow and easily understood.

Highly Recommend

John Mark has a way of writing that makes you feel as if you were sitting across from him at a coffee shop, having a conversation. He breaks down passages of the Bible, making it relatable to modern times and easy to digest for the reader. I highly recommend.

Foundational, transformative, & solid

It is so rare to find such a solid biblical approach to a subject… and even more rare to find the presentation made in “Millenial” speak! John Mark Comer has the amazing ability to pull foundational truths from the Bible and put them into a context that perfectly fits the cultural moment we are living in right now! I pray God continues to bless his ministry as he helps Christ followers along the way of Jesus.

An in depth and fresh look at Exodus 34

Such a clear, concise, yet approachable look at who God is and what we are to do in response to that. Well written and performed! I will be purchasing the hard copy of this title… I had made so many clips!

A stunning insight on who God really is

John Mark unravels some of the age old mysteries of God and questions so many have about the wrestle of good, evil, compassion and wrath; with a wonderful conclusion of God’s overwhelming love and compassion, even through, or because of His justice. This is a must read.

Powerful and eye-opening

This is a powerful book that explores the character of God revealed by the name he gives for himself to Moses in Exodus 3. It opened my eyes to the power, justice and mercy of God, the Creator and King of the universe. I found the final chapter especially eye opening to just who God is as a just yet merciful God.

Powerful insights into the character of Yahweh

Warning: this book could change your life.
Read brilliantly by the author, the book works through two verses (6&7) in Exodus 34 where God spells out his name/character. It is easy to listen to but so full of great teaching that I got to the end and then immediately listened a second time!
Dear reader, I hope you get as much out of listening to it as I have

If you like John Mark as a preacher you will love this. He's such an expressive presenter and this book is no different. Such a deep and thoughtful engagement with the character of God that I found really challenging.

Love the wrestle that leads to worship.

In a time where truth is regarded as relative, and the catch cry of the world is ‘You do you’ … I am hungry to know God, not more about me, or how I can be better, but who He is. God has a name rings true for me, it revels in the knowledge of God, and wrestles through hard questions with an awe and wonder for the God of the scriptures. I am grateful for JMC’s love for scripture, modern yet ancient… His voice is easy to hear, modern and conversational.
