BTBD: Week 15 – The Attributes of God, Part Two

In Biblical Doctrine by Jessica PickowiczLeave a Comment

Blogging Through Biblical Doctrine
Have you wanted to read a theology book, but haven’t known where to begin? In this series, Jess is blogging through John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s book, Biblical Doctrine. Print the study guides at the bottom of each post (or on the Resources page) and follow along!  Also, be sure to join the associated women’s Facebook page to discuss the study with other Christian women.  Finally, if you want to go back and start at the beginning you may find the Introduction article here.

Last week we began our discussion on the attributes of God. This week we dig a little deeper and discuss God’s incommunicable perfections. These are the attributes that He does not share with us. We do not “commune” with God in these perfections. We cannot be like Him in these specific and divine ways.

I want to share a few resources to supplement your study of this section. And while you may not have the time to read these books now, they are helpful tools to deepen your understanding down the road, or to recommend to a friend who is grappling with these truths.

Here are some supplement resources to help you today:

  1. What are the Communicable and Incommunicable Attributes of God article from GotQuestions
  2. 10 Things You Should know about God’s Incommunicable Attributes article by Jen Wilkin

Here are some book titles for “down the road”:

  1. Knowing God by JI Packer
  2. None Like Him by Jen Wilkin

And finally, here is your study guide for this week Theology Proper 4.

I’ll see you next week for our discussion on the communicable perfections of God.
