Praise for Knowing God By Name
“When these girlfriends get together, God is definitely at the center! Though their voices are distinct, their message and mission are seamless, weaving personal stories, biblical truths, and life-changing application into a truly meaningful devotional. Knowing God by Name opens our eyes to the many facets of God’s love and mercy, letting us see Him more clearly and know Him more deeply. Well done!”
—Liz Curtis Higgs, author of The Girl’s Still Got It
“Knowing God by Name is a treasure of blessing for us Bible-study junkies. Whether we realize it or not, names are significant, because who we believe we are affects how we respond to life. The same can be said of our Creator: who God says He is affects how He responds to His children. This study takes the reader on a personal and captivating journey through rich, deep layers of God’s character, with each one of His names jumping to life off the pages. I would recommend this study to anyone who desires a fresh connection to the One who created and named them.”
—Kasey Van Norman, president of Kasey Van Norman Ministries and author of the Named by God book and Bible study series
“Sharon, Gwen, and Mary are the real deal—the kind of girlfriends who cause you to lean forward when they start talking about Jesus and the kind you want to hang out with at Starbucks after Bible study. Plus, Knowing God By Name is a heart-expanding, potentially life-changing, hope-on-steroids subject. Which makes this literary faith adventure a must-read!”
—Lisa Harper, author, Bible teacher, and Women of Faith speaker
“How beautiful is the woman who truly knows God and relies on Him for her strength each day! Knowing God By Name brings us into a deeper and richer relationship with Him and helps us grow in our understanding of His attributes. This book takes us on a journey through God’s Word to discover the descriptive names of God and recognize what each name means to us personally. A great group study or a refreshing individual read, this book will enrich every woman’s intimacy with her heavenly Father.”
—Karol Ladd, author of Positive Life Principles for Women
“If you long to know God more personally and to understand His character, attributes, and love, read this book! Knowing God by Name is a powerful eight-week devotional on the names of God that explores every aspect of His ability to transform your life. This book will give you a fresh understanding of who He really is!”
—Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down
“Not just another study, this is an eight-week adventure in searching out the awe-inspiring, jaw-on-the-floor, blow-us-away character qualities of an all-powerful, everlasting Father. We’re talking life-changing stuff here. Not just because it’s beautifully written—though, oh my goodness, it certainly is—but because it helps us know our God better. And the more we know Him, the more we know how very safe our faith is when we place it in Him alone. Authentic, touching, personal stories from three of my very favorite authors make the journey to that faith-place even sweeter.”
—Rhonda Rhea, radio and TV personality and author of twelve books, including Espresso Your Faith
“Knowing God is paramount to everything else in a believer’s life. That’s why I was excited to read Knowing God by Name. This remarkable resource, which provides insight into life’s toughest questions and reveals the secrets of God’s heart toward you, will take your spiritual relationship to new heights. You may even experience a personal revival. I did.”
—Micca Campbell, speaker and author of An Untroubled Heart

I received this book free from Multnomah. I was not required to write a positivereview and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising"
The book is structured as an eight-week journey through the names of God. Each week contains five days' worth of entries about the names of God written by one of the three authors. The sixth entry in the week is called "Now It's Your Turn," which is perfect for personal response and deeper study or small group discussion for a women's Bible study group. All in all, the authors cover 40 names of God and provide 8 interactive lessons for individuals or groups.
I love the practical, story-telling style of all three of the authors and the way they relate the Bible to everyday life. Not only that, but their love of God, their passion for Him, their testimonies of how life isn't always perfect and yet God always remains faithful, clearly shine through the text. I not only learned head knowledge from this book, but it felt like engaging relationally with the authors, being encouraged by them, and then applying the lessons to my own life.
This book covers names I've studied often before, like Abba, or Savior, Deliverer, and King of kings, as well as some lovely fresh insights on names like My Song, My Hope, and the Builder and Architect. There are lessons here for the new believer, as well as the long-time Christian, helping all of us know God better.
