God Is God, God Is Not A Man
by Mary L. Lyon
“God is not a man, that God Should lie, Nor a son of man, that God should repent; Has God said, and will God not do it? Or has God spoken, and will God not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19, NASB) God Is God rightly puts to rest the age old argument of God's maleness. It answers questions about God that every person should consider. Your knowledge of God will be greater after reading this book. While the Bible does portray God as a male, God is not modelled after man. When you consider Numbers 23:19, the Bible is very clear on this subject. The verse begins with 'God is not a man.' The use of a pronoun does not define who God is. It does not make God a man. It only makes it easier for us in referring to God. God's actions and words define who God is. Numbers 23:19 tells us that God's actions and words are the very reason we know that God is not a man. The book will explore who God is. It also will explain the need for Jesus, the Son of God, to be a man.
