God's characteristics - the short list

The Bible helps us understand God, and how to relate to him. But it’s a monumental task to distill the Bible’s 66 chapters into a concise list of God’s characteristics.

Fortunately, “systematic theologians” do the distilling for us. My go-to source for a list of God’s characteristics is Millard Erikson’s Christian Theology, which describes God’s characteristics in chapters 12 and 13 (37 pages). That’s still too complex for a quick reference, so I reduced Erickson’s two chapters to this single web page, which I use whenever I need to remember who God is.

Blessings, Tim
