"Deploring current rampant theological illiteracy', Prof. Reymond directs us in an enthralling way to the one who alone can give us such a knowledge. His remarks are calculated to stir up adoring wonder at God's glorious greatness. Clearly bathed in prayer, each lecture is preceded and closed with prayer. When the Spirit Himself breathes through each exposition and application, the reader will long to see God as He is; know Him as he/she is known; love, honour and obey him as he deserves, and weep over his/her ignorance and trivial thoughts of him. In his passage through the series, the author does not hesitate to expose and condemn the false doctrines of God held by Romanism, Judaism and Islam. An Excellent Study." (Peace and Truth)
"..this is theology at its core - the very doctrine of God - and theology at it's best, informative, challenging, readable. It should be widely read." (Dr S. Westcott)

The Westminster Shorter Catechism 'Q4: What is God? A. God is a spirit; infinite, eternal, unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth.'
The chapter headings provide clearfound insight into the nature of such an awe-inspiring God:
1 The Incomprehensible Supreme Spirit
2 Infinite In His Being
3 Eternal In His Being
4 Unchangeable In His Being
5 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Wisdom
6 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Power
7 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Holiness
8 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Justice
9 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Goodness
10 Infinite, Eternal & Unchangeable In His Truth
11 Trinity - God's Special Mark Of Distinction
With the apostle Paul, Professor Reymond declares that all have knowledge of God, for all have seen His handwork, the heavens and earth. That special revelation as God's means of grace is also rooted in Scripture, he explains magnificently by how even David had a theological grasp of general and special revelation, providing Psalm 19 as the scriptural basis.
'Moreover, because our God is logically rational, neither in His understanding nor in what He says is there the slightest contradiction. As the God of truth, for Him the laws of logic - His innate laws of truth and rationality - are intrinsically and inherently valid because they are intrinsic and inherent to His nature. I would even suggest that we should think of logic, if not as an attribute of God per se and just one more of God's 'countless attributes' (E. Lange), as the epistemological aspect of God's infinite attribute of wisdom and knowledge.' p 278
Defying the post-modern posture, this remarkable God-exalting tome may yet increase our awareness of an almighty, infinite and holy God. Too many have a deficient understanding of His sovereignty, and therefore no understanding of what it means to be GOD.
