Publisher's Summary

For too long, Christians have domesticated God, bringing him down to our level as if he is a God who can be tamed. But he is a God who is high and lifted up, the Creator rather than the creature, someone than whom none greater can be conceived. If God is the most perfect, supreme being, infinite and incomprehensible, then certain perfect-making attributes must be true of him. Perfections like aseity, simplicity, immutability, impassibility, and eternity shield God from being crippled by creaturely limitations. At the same time, this all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-wise God accommodates himself, exhibiting perfect holiness, mercy, and love as he makes known who he is and how he will save us. 

The attributes of God show us exactly why God is worthy of worship: there is none like him. Join Matthew Barrett as he rediscovers these divine perfections and finds himself surprised by the God he thought he knew.

First 2 chapters are GREAT!

The start of this book is beautiful. The last few chapters felt repetitive to me. There is a lot of reiterations of the simplicity and imutabilty of God.

Magnificent

This book is absolutely magnificent. In a day where there is no shortage of overly emotional and heretical gibberish written on the doctrine of God, here is a much needed, refreshing, and theologically sound examination of God's attributes. The book is written in an engaging and understandable format that both layman and scholar can benefit from. I highly recommend this soul stirring and God exalting work from Matthew Barrett.

Great content, bland narration

I love the topic of this book, and the theology presented is absolutely sound. It is a sweeping view of God's glorious attributes, and it is communicated clearly and interestingly.

I kind of wish I'd just bought the paperback though, as the narrator, while competent, does not do justice to the content. If this were an autobiography or perhaps a history book, the matter-of-fact performance would feel entirely at home. However, when dealing with the majesty of God and discussing such lofty things as God's sovereign will, the emotionless, mild, and somewhat plodding narrative becomes quite jarring. I'm not asking for drama, but the complete lack of feeling from the narrator is very out of place here - especially since the author himself does not present the content as a cold analysis, but rather as a call to give God glory.

Designed to make ‘theology proper’ accessible.

This is not an easy subject and the glossary is at the end of the book. It is one of those books that is worth having a kindle or paper copy to hand. Having said that, the author does his best to write clearly and this helped by clear narration. The doctrines of God are precious and it is well worth reading this with attention. It is not background noise to drift in and out of. Glorifying and enjoying God are the chief aims of life. That’s why this book is so important.
