More About This Book

Overview

When God wanted us to know what He is like, He told us His name.
92% of Americans profess belief in God, question is ....the God they believe in, what is He like? Is He loving? Kind? Just? Or is He angry? Vindictive? Cruel? Truth is, WHAT a person believes about God is more important than IF a person believes in God. What they believe about God determines the quality of their relationship with God, or if they will have a relationship at all.
Most Americans believe in God, but ask them to describe the God they believe in and the opinions vary wildly. Using the Bible as his source, author Will McDonald explores what God had to say about Himself through the names of God revealed in the scripture. In these pages you may discover the knowledge of God, (Mysteries into which Angels have longed to look) and along the way you just might discover a few things about yourself as well. For as you learn just who God says He is, you will also find a path of healing and restoration to become the person God has called you to be.

    Healing for a broken spirit

    Like the author, I grew up wounded and scarred from childhood abuse. The book lays out a path for healing, that of having the image of God, the plan of God from the beginning of creation, restored in my heart and spirit. The names of God reveal who He is, but also who He has called us to be in His image. Now I know what Jesus meant when he said “The truth shall set you free.” I have believed a lie for far to long as to who I am, I want to know God, hear his voice, and discover not just God’s name, . . but my own as well.

    Great for small group study or personal devotions

    Knowing God by Name is a devotional study that would work well for personal or group study. If you are expecting a text book you will likely be disappointed in this book. That is not to say the author didn't do his homework, I just believe he was more interested in making some complex concepts understandable for the average reader. The book only deals with five of the main Old Testament names of God, but they are dealt with pretty in depth. The names of God that were chosen are later developed further with an examination of how the Old Testament names of God are fulfilled or incarnated in Jesus Christ. The book concludes with the final chapter devoted to the "new name" we are given through our relationship with God. Some of the unique concepts from the book would include the idea that since we are made in the image of God, by learning about who God is, we are also discovering who we are called to be, as his children. Building on that concept is the idea that the image of God is learned, in the same way any child learns what it means to be in the image of their parents. This emphasizes the very serious nature of the fall. I am still wrestling with the unique application of the idea that we are all spiritual feral children. The chapters about El Elyon and Jesus as El Elyon are challenging and well worth a couple re-reads. All in all, while the beginning of the book is fairly basic, and understandable for new Christians, there are many concepts here to challenge any believer in Christ to grow in their faith and in Christ-likeness.
