Publisher's Summary

God's identity is beyond what we could ever fully express in human words. But Scripture uses one particular word to describe the distinctiveness of God's character: the Hebrew word hesed.

Hesed is a concept so rich in meaning that it doesn't translate well into any single English word or phrase. Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, often expressed as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love. He explores how hesed is used in the Old Testament to reveal God's character and how he relates to his people. Ultimately, the fullness of hesed is embodied in the incarnation of Jesus. As we follow our God of hesed, we ourselves are transformed to live out the way of hesed, marked by compassion, mercy, and faithfulness. 

Discover what it means to be people of an everlasting love beyond words.

life changing book

God brought me this book as an answer to my prayers. He is so wonderful to give us Himself ...just what we always need. God's love is so amazing and so undeserved, yet He delights to love us. Even has committed to us for eternity! I loved listening to the author's voice as he read this book. I could feel the realness of his hope in God and love for him ....and his love for people. His 10 year journey in writing this book is a testament to his faithfulness in obeying God's two greatest commandments. I'm so grateful for this brother in Christ :)

Read, Enjoy, Absorb, Live and Do

While the word Hesed Is effulgent and ineffible, Michael Card has done a wonderful job of bringing us through something that is inexpressable. Please consider taking the time to hearing and / or reading this book more than once and then making a decision to do Hesed.

Expressing the “Inexpressible”; doing hesed

Michael’s study of the inexpressibly amazing word which conveys “the defining characteristic of God” encourages us to respond to God’s hesed, His lovingkindness, by doing hesed in return and offering hesed to others, who like ourselves are undeserving. Even though we deserve nothing, we may boldly ask God to give us everything, for that is who God is. And we reminded of the profound cost of doing hesed, but that we may delight in it even as God delights in doing hesed even though our redemption cost God everything. His is a transforming love, grace, and truth.
