Publisher's Summary

Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if he's more of an idea we believe in our head than a person we relate to. But God has a name: Yahweh. This one simple idea 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.

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

This book is a simple, but profound guide to what God says about himself. In his signature conversational-but-smart style, John Mark Comer takes the listener line by line through Exodus 34 v6-8 - Yahweh's self-revelation on Mount Sinai - called by some scholars the one most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible. In it, we see who God says he is.

It turns out, who God is just might surprise you, and change everything.

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.

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.

Not my Will, but your Will

If you could sum up God Has a Name in three words, what would they be?

speechlessness, awe-inspiring, provocative

Who was your favorite character and why?

Yahweh. Because He seeks to reach out to us despite who we have become, and seeks to move us by the love he has for us.

Have you listened to any of John Comer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, and I did speed it the text up some, but still was moved by his thought process and writing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The War of Will's

Any additional comments?

While I did not personally agree with some of the political jabs, very thought provoking, heart moving, emotional charged crafting. I think he did a great job of bringing to light the highlights of scripture. I had went through this book with my oldest son who is 14. After the SP shooting in Texas I asked him one day how he was coping with what happen. "dad I know that was not God's will that those things happen, that was someone else will. I understand now that God's will is not always done on earth. I am sad that it happen, but I am not afraid of people or mad at God. It is sad though that His will is not carried out." wow did I just here that from my 14 year old son? yes.. yes I did. I also appreciate his approach to the unseen spiritual world that is against us. JMC took to a respectful level of consideration. didn't go crazy with it, but brought in a great realistic approach to what is out there. I think we often fairy tale those forces and don't give them the credit that is due. I do know others may go to far. I think he addressed it appositely and brought to a place for all to consider contextually. I am grateful for him allowing God to work though him to write this book over all Very moving work. Every High School student should have to read this at some point to gain a better persecutive of life.

Excellent teaching!

John Mark Comer is an excellent teacher! He digs deep and delivers thought provoking, personal theology challenging teachings that will grow and stretch you to understand the character of God. I highly suggest this book! I love that it is read by him, he is clear and easy to listen to. Fantastic! I will be listening to this again, multiple times and buying the hard copy to have in my library forever.

Really Helpful

This is a great introduction to who The God above all gods is. If you have a hard time reading the Bible, read this book first, then read the Bible and see it from the perspective of God as a person, The Person, who is the best and greatest person you will ever know! And to know Him is to love him!!
