When we try to describe all that God is, we are often at a loss for words. Because we cannot help but to use human words to attempt to encompass God’s being, Kenneth Gibble has created a series of sermons where he compares God to everyday concepts, drawing inspiration from Biblical perceptions of our Lord.

Gibble’s sermon series, God Is Like… is a way for worship leaders to take a closer look at how the Bible describes our creator, and better understand how indescribable God’s power and love for us is. Sermons in this book can serve as a starting point for a theologically deeper exploration of scripture, or as standalone homilies to help explore how Christians should approach God. These sermons can be utilized by pastors and congregation members alike, as well as anyone who desires to strengthen their relationship with God.

God is like a parent, like fire, like a comforter and like a lamb — and much more. Human words cannot begin to encompass the entirety of God’s being, but Gibble’s sermon series takes a first step, attempting to define God as best as humans can.
