About this course

Knowing who he is and his being is essential for a deep, intimate relationship with the God of creation. You may use words like love, holy, just, and good to describe him. It’s through these attributes that God reveals himself and we discover who he really is. Throughout Scripture, different attributes are displayed at different times. In this course, Dr. Heiser outlines the nature of God by explaining the unshared attributes that God alone possesses as well as the attributes he shares with humanity, created as his image. He lays out the arguments for God’s existence and you’ll walk away with a solid foundation for the doctrine of God.
