Grace's Grace Groups are currently looking at God's Self-Descriptions. The following list of Names, Titles, & Descriptions of God comes from the last pages of the Experiencing God workbook. (As found in the NIV)

As you can tell, this list is long, but it is not exhaustive. For example, Grace Church memorized Isaiah 57:15 last week where we learned that God describes Himself (among other things) as "The High and exalted One" which is not on this list.
