Who does the Bible say God is?

Responses to our biblical literacy survey question, “Who does the Bible say God is?” This was our attempt to assesses Theological understanding. We would hope common responses would include, but not be limited to: Trinitarian / Justice / Jesus / Love / Creator / Spirit. A word frequency count showed that the most frequently used word (other than articles), was the word “Creator” (131). Additional high frequency words included: Father (64), Holy (38), Spirit (38), Son (35), Love (28).
