There is a raging debate over Andrew Wilson's 'Incomparable.' Is it pronounced 'in-com-parable' or 'in-comp-rabble?' That minor quibble aside, Andrew Wilson has taken on a sizeable task: an accessible theology book, "exploring the character of God," as the tagline goes. He does so admirably.

Focusing exclusively on God, it is very helpfully divided into four sections: The Being Of God, The Names Of God, God In Three Persons and The Attributes Of God. Each section is comprised of a number of chapters that average five pages in length. As you'd expect, Incomparable is littered with scriptures that Wilson unpacks to teach into and bring insight into the character of God. Despite the chapters being short they are full of truth and very easy to read.

I really enjoyed the books style - it is written in an engaging and accessible way and filled with illustration and example. This means it is a book that can be read as part of devotions or picked up periodically over time. Of course, it could also be read systematically or worked through slowly as a study. Its versatility mean it is actually one of those 'shelf-life' books that can stay on your bookcase for years, that you can come back to again and again. Normally such books are weighty tomes that double up as doorstops , so credit to Wilson for packing so much truth in a volume of such brevity.

Incomparable has something for everyone - whether you are familiar with theological reading or not, revelation will come as you read this book. Personally, I found combining it with my devotional life to be energising and invigorating. I also think it is a book that would be perfect for giving to new converts, or working through with young people. Also, if you are looking for an entry level book into more theological reading, it is an ideal foundation.

An excellent book, very well written and worth buying, reading and giving away!

This book is excellent to place into the hands of busy men. The chapters are short, to the point, stirring and inspiring making this book excellent as an aid to personal devotions for the man on the go.

Incomparable by Andrew Wilson is a Christian book which looks at the character of God. I purchased it because my brother needs it for his theology training and I really enjoyed it.

This is a very readable book which looks at some of the characteristics of God. Every chapter is short, no more than 6 pages long which makes this an accessible book and easy to dip into. However, there is a lot of theology in this book and even though I was able to read this book in a few days I would like to re-read it slowly to see what I probably missed/didn't take in.

Wilson writes in a very accessible way and argues every point clearly and concisely, using evidence from both the Bible and other sources. I have learned an awful lot from this book, and there is probably more I can learn when I re-read it.

This is a really informative, enjoyable and easy-to-read book.

A superb book which I bought a few years back in paperback and have now updated to my kindle. Each chapter can be read as a bible study or as a prelude to praise and worship. Every aspect of God, as highlighted by Andrew, gives fresh pause for consideration and deep thought. How amazing is our God.

Another excellent book by Andrew Wilson: Easy to read and aimed at the heart as well as the head.
For those looking for a a thorough academically theological tome, this is not it. Having said that, I absolutely recommend it for everyone as it provides a profound understanding of the character of God in a way that encourages you to know him, rather than to know about him. Be warned though, knowing God better can cause an earthquake in your comfortable life, bringing down the harmful and unnecessary. But it will also provide you with the means to rebuild it as the most wonderful palace, fit for the King!

Buy it, read it, put it into practice and enjoy the results.

Its like a condensed, less dry version of the classic Knowing God (J I Packer). Although, the depth may not be quite the same, the pages per chapter is also far reduced making it an excellent daily reading companion. Theologically sound and sublimely encouraging to look upwards rather than inwards. Definitely worth every penny

Andrew Wilson writes in a clear, concise, knowlegeable and enthusiastic way about God. He explores 60 names and descriptions of the one true God, weaving profound biblical insight into each short chapter, and so unfolding the greatest subject our minds and hearts can ever contemplate.

The book has 60, short chapters, covering different aspects of God's character. Each chapter has a profound insight and is made easier to understand with the everyday allegories he uses.

The book touches your spirit. It is easy to read and thought provoking. It is a great book that helps us to get a bigger picture of God. It will make you want to know God, our creator, even more.

Incomparable by Andrew Wilson is one of my favourite books. For those of you who don't know the format of the book I will explain quickly. Wilson takes aspects of the character of God (all based in scripture) and explores them. Each chapter is only 2 or 3 pages long and each chapter deals with a new aspect.

The truths contained in this book are fantastic. Wilson has a clear insight into scripture and is able to easily communicate this throughout. Despite the short length of chapters the content doesn't feel in the least bit airy. It is no Systematic Theology but neither is it a breeze. The book is ideal for using during devotional times, for using as a leap board for studying and just for focusing in how amazing our God is! I would whole heartedly recommend this book to any Christian.
