Author: Ava Pennington
"Every name of God revealed in the Bible shows us something about His character and His ways. As the multiple facets of a cut diamond combine to reflect its brilliance, the names and attributes of God combine to reveal the transcendence of His nature and the glory of His ways," Ava Pennington writes in her book, "Daily Reflections on the Names of God."
At three hundred and eighty-four pages, this paperback book is targeted toward those looking for a devotional in regard to the names and attributes of God. Using mainly the New American Standard version of the Bible, other versions included are God's Word, King James, The Message, New International, and New Living Translation that covers one hundred and twenty two names devoted to the Almighty.
After an acknowledgement page, the introduction explains the book has three different aspects dedicated to the names of God: those that show how and why God describes Himself, those that focus on how we should apply them to our lives, and those that teach us how to approach others about Him.
With arrow symbols at the top of each page designating which aspect the name will be described, the author lists the theme along with Bible verses to look up. The main portion of the page is several paragraphs dedicated to the theme, mostly mentioning Scriptural application but sometimes the writer's personal experiences.
A short italicize prayer is included on each page along with a personal applicable question for the reader to consider. Besides an alphabetical index at the back, there is a Scriptural one.Read more ›
Ava Pennington has packed in the meat and potatoes on each day in a way that doesn't overwhelm you but simply reaches in and digs a little deeper. Knowing the names of God and allowing those names to draw you closer to Him while also uncovering some new insights and nuggets that you may have never noticed before.
With little symbols on the top of each page they guide you to look at each name or attribute of God in the devotional that day by looking "up", looking "in" or looking "out". Each day is ready for you to sit and soak in while allowing you to lean in to who God really is. This devotional is sure to be one that I read over and over again for many years.
On a personal note, I just have to mention that not only is this devotional rich with goodness, grace and mercy...but so is the author, Ava Pennington. She sent me this book almost two years ago and through various rabbit trails and delays I am just not posting the review and I'm doing so not because I "have to" but because as a woman in ministry and as a writer/speaker myself I could not let this sweet little gem of a book go by unnoticed, nor could I let the incredible author go unnoticed as well. Thank you thank you thank you Ava for your grace. You are a true gem! ~ Melissa
The only thing I would have liked is dates or numbers for each devotion. If you accidentally lost your place finding where you were was challenging.
Overall I was blessed, encouraged, and inspired by this devotional and would read other books by this author.

My assessment not a fair one because it only works along side a print Bible to look up references. My vision works well in ebooks, but not well in regular printed text. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Elda
