About the Book
Experiencing God Through His Names, published by Bold Vision Books, June 2016
What’s in a name?
Names are more than groups of letters that represent a person or identify objects. Names are powerful. A person’s character and destiny can be influenced by his or her name. God‘s attributes and personality support His unique and distinct names. If we comprehend the meanings of His titles, we can know God more intimately. In Experiencing God Through His Names, Sheryl Giesbrecht walks with you on an exciting journey to discover and absorb the truth about God‘s character. In the next 31 days, God wants you to get to know Him. Are you ready?
I have long been fascinated by the Names of our God and have had a deep desire to learn more about Him by understanding them. This book has been an excellent addition to my studies, with a lot of new perspectives on Names I knew already as well as introducing me to some Names that were new to me! I like the devotional style, focusing on one Name each day, and I really liked how the author began each devotional with a personal vignette, tied it into an explanation of the day’s Name, and then finished with a strong application to everyday life and a prayer based on that day’s Name.
The only minor criticism I have for this book is that the author drew what I felt were too strong distinctions between who she refers to as the “God of the Old Testament” and the “God of the New Testament.” I believe there is only ONE God and that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I recognize that the author believes this too, but I found myself wishing several times that she would have chosen her words on this topic more carefully as what she was talking about was actually the difference in the understanding of God’s character by people who lived before and after the coming of our Messiah.
I can, nonetheless, highly recommend this book and give it five stars. I look forward to making my way through it more slowly and have no doubt I will return to its pages frequently!
