"What can we know about God that we can learn on our own? The apostle Paul says that by looking around us and seeing that there is a creation, the universe, we can know that there is a Creator and we can know of His eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:19-20). But there is much more that we can know about God because He has revealed Himself in His word, the Bible. And the greatest revelation of the nature of God is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
God reveals that He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, and everywhere present. God is a God of love, mercy, justice, forgiveness, and toward those who choose to rebel aganist Him, He is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29).
But the foundational atribute of God is His absolute holiness. If we do not understand the holiness of God, we are in great danger of misunderstanding all of His other attributes and our relationship with God. His holiness intensifies, explains and clarifies all of His other attributes and His actions. Failure to understand His holiness may well prevent us from fully appreciating all that God does for us and what He wants to do for us.
This book is written to help you begin to understand a holy God, in whom "there is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5). But, it will be just that, only a beginning in what must be a life-long journey getting to know Him. May your journey be a rewarding one."
