From Publishers Weekly In this down-to-earth exercise in evangelical theology, Ingram, a radio show
host and CEO of the Atlanta-based organization Walk Through the Bible, makes
the case that understanding the character of God as He reveals Himself is the
most important task facing new Christians and seasoned believers alike. Noting
that his analysis is meant to be devotional and practical rather than
comprehensive, Ingram focuses on seven traits attributed to God: goodness,
sovereignty, holiness, wisdom, justice, love and faithfulness. Although Ingram
relies on the work of evangelical heavyweights like C.S. Lewis and A.W. Tozer
to make his points, his primary sources in answering questions about such
conundrums as why God allows suffering or the nature of Christ's sacrificial
atonement for sin are the Old and New Testaments. One caveat: though Ingram's
style is accessible and often engaging, his methodical and rather pedagogical
style may narrow his potential audience to readers comfortable with the
traditional language of conservative apologetics. Suitable for personal or
group study, the end of each chapter on God's attributes includes an
inspirational quotation, a prayer and a devotional anecdote. (Aug.)

You Will See God As He Really Is! Jan 26, 2007
We all have times of doubt about who God is and if His character is consistent with who He claims to be. Chip Ingram brings the one true God, the God Almighty, before you and gives you a clear understanding of who God is and why He is Lord of All. Chip Ingram is one of my favorite authors, there is no question he is led completely by the Holy Spirit and his style of writing is so personal that you are moved from the moment you begin reading his books. This book is no different from his others in that they are powerful, inspirational, and filled with a message straight from God. You will find yourself face to face with God throughout this book and you are sure to draw even nearer to Him. I would highly recommend this as well to anyone who is questioning their beliefs in God, a friend or relative who does not know God, or someone just struggling in life who needs to know God is with them. I HIGHLY recommend, "God As He Longs for You to See Him!"
Great read Dec 22, 2006
I rarely get real excited about devotional books. However, this has become one of my favorite books. It balances well the use of Scripture and the use of anecdotes. I shy away from books that rely strictly on stories to convey their message. This relies a lot on Scripture, but not so much as to be overwhelming or hard to read. It truly helped me to see God in a different way. I highly recommend this book!
changed my walk Nov 17, 2005
This is one of the most influential books I have ever read. I recommend it to everyone, especially to anyone who struggles with their concept of God and how He sees us. Simply wonderful!
excellant book Sep 2, 2005
This book has given me a much deeper insight to God's character.Very much unlike ours.I would highly recommend this book to anyone.I bought several to give to members of my family.
A Must For anyone who wants to know God! Feb 16, 2005
I have been listening to Chip Ingram for a long time on his radio show and have always been drawn to his profound yet practical approach to preaching and teaching the Gospal. So it was a great delight to find this book, and I must say I was completly floored by the depth yet simplicity of this book as it explored the true charecteristics of God and what that means to us as his creation. Chip outlines the characteristics of God and splashes practical vibrant insight into how these characteristics, when properly looked at and applied, can radically change your life. Trust me when I say that you will never look at God or his relationship with you in the same light again after reading this book. For example many of us believe that if we submit to God, he will make us do things we don't want to do! Rubbish?? God gave us all the ultimate gift--His Son--so why would he start being stingy now?? Get this book and discover God the way he wants you to discover him!!
