Names of God, Pamphlet
I am totally enjoying this study! I have been looking for a "Names of God" study for many years and this one far exceeds my expectations.

Great for teaching Sunday school!
We purchased this pamphlet along with bookmarks listing the names of God. My husband will use these tools when he teaches a special Sunday school class this next year. The bookmarks, which are very nice I might add, will be given to each class member!

Product is OK
Just want to refer to Robert A.'s comment. Most of what you wrote about Adonai being Jehovah is correct. My comment is about the name of God "Elohim." Elohim is the name of God in the plural form which is used in Genesis Chapter one (1) with regards to creation, which I do believe refers to God the Father, God the son who is Jesus and God the Holy Spirit. (Paralell to John Ch. 1) Since GOD is one Elohim actually refers to the Trinity.

These aren't all names of God
I guess Christian publishing knows it can get away with stuff these days. Since most believers don't know Hebrew authors can make all kinds of claims and assert all kinds of things.
The "Names of God" is a fair resource and when it actually properly identifies a name of God it does well to provide decent content.
Unfortunately, a number of the names of God aren't actually names of God. For instance Adonai is the first listed...that's not a specific name. Actually Adonai is one possible pronunciation for the Hebrew word YHWH which can also be pronounced Jehovah. If you look up Adonai references (Is. 40:3-5 or Ez 16:8) in Hebrew the word used is YHWH. Elohim isn't a referent to YHWH in Deut 10:17, but is adjectival. Since Elohim is often used to refer to false gods, and since YHWH is in the Hebrew, why would they emphasize Elohim? If you look up Jehovah, it's YWHW. This is just bad research. It taints the book.
There are plenty of more errors within. It makes one wonder if the authors did actual research or just copied what another author had previously done. Rose is usually better than this.
