The Attributes of God

Theology Proper is about learning more about who God really is. Studying the attributes of God is a way of honoring God. God wants us to know who He is. God is the manifestation of His attributes. God has told us everything He wants us to know about Him in His Word. The God of the bible is not a God we can fully know or understand comprehensively but He does not leave our knowledge of Him to our imagination either. There is a wonderful book writtern by Arthur W. Pink called The Attributes of God that explores who God is. I have included the preface below and the table of contents.

THE ATTRIBUTES OF GOD

PREFACE


“Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee” (Job 22:21). “Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty glory in his might, let not the rich glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth, and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord” (Jer 9:23,24). A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human creature.

The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped. In this booklet an effort has been made to set forth some of the principal perfections of the Divine character. If the reader is to truly profit from his perusal of the pages that follow, he needs to definitely and earnestly beseech God to bless them to him, to apply His Truth to the conscience and heart, so that his life will be transformed thereby.

Something more than a theoretical knowledge of God is needed by us. God is only truly known in the soul as we yield ourselves to Him, submit to His authority, and regulate all the details of our lives by His holy precepts and commandments. “Then shall we know, if we follow on (in the path of obedience) to know the Lord” (Hosea 6:3). “If any man will do His will, he shall know” (John 7:17). “The people that do know their God shall be strong” (Dan. 11:32).
