In my opinion it is the finest book on the major attributes of God ever written for a general Christian audience. There is simply no grandeur theme in life than that of Theology Proper (the study of God). Sproul takes 12 attributes of God including His omnipotence, self-existence, omnipresence, omniscience - and 8 others - and gives penetrating insight and practical applications concerning each one. R.C. does a masterful job of heightening, illuminating, and glorifying our understanding of God. He has the ability to write with penetrating insight and skillfully stretch one's thinking on the greatness of God, without delving into the abstract or obscure. He keeps you on the edge of your seat as you read about our amazing relational and yet totally transcendent God.
If you have never read a book on God's attributes before this is a wonderful place to start. However, even if you've read Charnock's massive treatise on the "Attributes of God" you will still be instructed and encouraged by Sproul's practical theology. I have read this book several times over the years, and it is one of a few books I come to again and again.Read more ›
Maybe the fault was mine for not enjoying it as much as I anticipated. I usually expect his books to be full of his talent to convey deep theological concepts in a way that anyone can understand. This one was a bit basic on the concepts of who God is. I did learn a few things which makes it worth 4 stars. I think I was expecting it to be on the level of "Knowing God" by Packer and it just didn't meet my expectations. Perhaps Sproul meant for it to be about the fundamentals of who God is instead of his usual deep concepts.
In the end I'm glad I read it. It just missed the mark for me.
