To truly love someone, you have to know him. And to truly love God, we must know him too. Not just know that he exists, but know who he is and what he is like.

This exploration of God's unchanging character, as revealed in thirteen stories from the Bible, offers you this opportunity—to get to know him better and love him more. Each chapter focuses on a different attribute of God, how it influences your understanding of him, and how you can apply it to your daily life.

This new edition includes a study guide, which helps you apply the text by providing along with each chapter:

  • Study questions
  • Background and contextual information
  • Additional passages for further study

This fresh look at his character will help you discover, or rediscover, the God who is infinite and holy, all-knowing and all-powerful—the God who is truth and love. And as you draw nearer to him, you’ll find that there is no endeavor more rewarding than this one.


"It takes peculiar skill to provide an explanation of God’s attributes that both feeds the mind and stirs the heart. Phil Ryken achieves this and more in this most helpful book."

—Alistair Begg

"People in our day, even in the church, know very little about God and therefore do not know themselves well either. . . . But these thirteen bright chapters will get you started. And they will encourage you too."

—James Montgomery Boice
