The book looked interesting, so I purchased a copy. When I received it, I was so pleased, I ordered copies for friends in ministry so I could give it as a gift. They were just as thrilled with the comprehensive treatment and pictures as I was. Excellent resource for preaching or Bible study.

Praise belongs to our Almighty God. I am making this a part of my daily quiet time and find joy in praising God for who He is.

"The Names of God" had entries for 73 names or titles for God the Father, 151 for Jesus, and 26 for the Holy Spirit. The author gave a verse in which the name is used, summarized the context of the verse, explained what the name meant in that context, listed the related names that are used elsewhere, and gave a meditative thought about the name. There were also 'side' boxes which had verses from hymns that use the name or related Bible verses.There were a lot of nice, useful pictures used to illustrate the name or a point made in the text--usually those things which might be unfamiliar to the reader.Though not specifically set up as a devotional, the discussions for each name were relatively short and ended with a devotional-type thought, so it would work well as a devotional. The information was rooted in the Bible, contained good theology, and had some nice insights. Overall, I'd recommend this book to those looking for a devotional-type book and/or those wanting to learn more about the many names of God.
