After sales of almost 10,000, Incomparable has now been revised & expanded with extra chapters.
This new edition adds a further sixteen mini-chapters, called Selahs. These are additional reflections, inserted throughout the book, aimed to apply practically some of the theology that has been taught in the previous chapters. The Selahs come in four types:
"Read and Reflect" gives a key passage of Scripture to meditate on
"Pause and Pray" gives a suggested prayer with which to follow up what has been said
"Stop and Study" gives direction for further reading on more complex or controversial topics
"Wait and Worship" gives various hymns and songs which focus on the relevant attribute of God
God Most High. The LORD. I Am. YHWH. Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Maker of heaven and earth. There can be no greater inspiration, no other reason for worship, and no stronger motivation to live well.
Andrew Wilson explores 60 names and descriptions of the one true God, weaving profound biblical insight into each short chapter, and so unfolding the greatest subject our minds and hearts can ever contemplate.
The aim throughout is to help the reader follow up what they are learning, by giving ways in which they can further engage with aspects of God's character, through meditation, prayer, study and worship.
Andrew Wilson has degrees in theology from Cambridge University (MA) and London School of Theology (MTh) and a passion to communicate the truth about God.
