I love this rich devotional study of the Names of God. Ann put this study book together so beautifully and so easy to follow. I'm sure I will repeat it in my daily devotional time over and over. I gave it as a gift to my best friend, and she said it is now her favorite devotional book! I'm buying more now for some other friends who need it. I highly recommend it.
Last year I received "Praying the Names of Jesus" by this same author and enjoyed it greatly. This is no less enjoyable! This is a book that seems so simple upon first look but it delves deeply into the richness of God's Word exposing the beauty and depth of the original language and the importance of the different names given to God. We are taught the words Lord, God, Almighty, the I Am - yet rarely do we truly understand the depth and meaning of these words or how they reveal the rich and wonderful character of God.
Upon reading a book like this it is hard to view the scriptures in the same context. For all of the sudden you have a more complete knowledge of what the author, under the divine inspiration of God, was trying to convey. It is like stumbling upon a treasure in the midst of what you already thought was good and unearthing more than you expected at each turn. It is like finding a well in the midst of a desert, then discovering it is actually a spring that runs eternally deep and will never run dry.
I really enjoy that only one Name is explored for the entire week. This gives the reader time to absorb the meaning - to make it personal and to experience the true character of who God is. The questions cause the reader to dig deeper and apply the knowledge that has been taught.
I am enjoying this study very much. EBook is the way to go for me. I think I will do my reading this way from now on. I always know where to find my book, it is on my PC or whereever I download it to. Great way to do books and no trees need to pay the price!
