Would you like to spend a year getting to know God in a deeper, more intimate way?

I have always been intrigued with the names and attributes of God. Ava Pennington did an incredible job researching and compiling this applicable devotional that is all about God's amazing names and attributes. One unique feature offers three distinctions for meditating on the same attribute: worshiping God, internal reflection, and relating to others. In the back, there's a great reference section with the many passages of Scripture used in the book. This makes it easy to look up attributes when studying the Bible. I consider this book a valuable resource that I will use for many purposes. While this devotional can take a year to complete, it doesn't have to be started at the beginning of the year. I started in November. This book will strengthen your relationship with God

Daily Reflections on the name of God by Ava Pennington This is a great devotional that I have added to my daily reading plan. It is dedicated to the attributes and characteristics of the names of God. The author devotes three days to each name. On the first day we discover how and why He is called that particular name. The second day she teaches us how it can be applied to us, and the third day is dedicated to finding how the name or attribute affects our relationship with God. To me not only is this a devotional, I found it to be a great teaching tool. I especially enjoy the questions after each devotion. It has been a great help to get me to think harder about what I have just read. I give this book five stars, it is very informative and well put together. I want to thank the author and publisher for bringing Christian devotional books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book has been a good reminder and a learning experience for me. It was really good to study these 122 names of God. The author did not rush but spent three sections on each name. Each section begins with a Bible reading, then a verse, the lesson, a prayer, and finally questions for application. This is a book that I plan to incorporate in my Bible reading and quite time. I also think it would be good for a family devotional. I actually plan to start this in January with my kids. Each of God's names are important and shows us a character trait of Him. He is a knowable God. I received this book from The Book Club Network and the opinions are my own.

Daily Reflections on the Names of God is one of the best devotionals I’ve read! Each day features a name of God that corresponds to a prayer, scripture reference, devotional reading and question to consider. The names of God are repeated three days in a row to enforce the name, understanding and concept. The devotions are broken up into short readings that make the time about quality not quantity which is great for the average person’s busy schedule. It’s like a mini bible study everyday but because of the way it’s written, it can be done in a short devotional time. It is enhancing the way I read my bible and the way I approach God in prayer because it causes me to see WHO God is in a deeper way. I look forward to reading it each day. The devotional is one that I would recommend hands down to everyone, man or woman. I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

Excellent devotional! I’ve loved reading this devotional on the names of God! It is not dated, so you may begin it any time during the year. I really enjoy how Ms. Pennington chose to do the devotional for each day. There is a scripture reference to look up, then a couple paragraphs applying what you’ve read, then a prayer, and finally a question to consider throughout your day. Probably my favorite aspect of the devotions is the fact that you look at the same name for 3 days, each a different perspective of how it might effect your view of God and life. Having the repetition of reading the name 3 times helps each it to make a greater impact, I think. It causes them to stay with me longer and has more of an influence on my understanding of God. I highly recommend this devotional to anyone who is looking for an in depth study into the many names of God. I received this book through The Book Club Network for my honest review, which I have given.

Daily Reflections on the Names of God by Ava Pennington has been a wonderful addition to my quiet time devotions. I purchased it in 2011 under its previous title (One Year Alone with God: 366 Devotions on the Names of God), and have been enriched by it every day since then. I especially like the format used in this book, as the author states, "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." She explores 122 names and attributes of God in three ways. In the first devotional for each name or attribute, the author has the reader "look up" to see how and why God describes Himself the way He does. In the second devotional for each name, she has us "look in," as we focus on how the particular name or characteristic applies to our lives, and how it changes or strengthens out relationship with God. Finally, in the third devotional for each name or attribute, the author encourages the reader to "look out," as we apply what we are learning about God and ourselves to our relationships with others. I have found looking at these three facets of each name or attribute adds great depth and quality as I look up the Scriptures, pray God's word, and journal my responses. This is one devotional that will find its place in your heart, not your bookshelf.

Anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of God will want to read every page of this book. It is personal, practical, informative, and deeply spiritual. It is great for someone who is a new believer and wants to understand the many characteristics of God, yet challenging for those who have been believers for many years. The devotions will help you grow in your faith and love for our heavenly Father.

This is definitely one of the best devotionals I have used! I've given many hard copies to friends as well

As a devotional author, I am very picky when it comes to yearly devotionals. Ava's Daily Reflections on the Names of God was not only challenging but it was encouraging as well. It's amazing how little we truly know about the names of God. If you're looking to get closer to God in this next year, I urge you to pick up this book!

I love Ava Pennington wisdom and gift to reveal the names of God as real, relevant and exciting. This devotional is life changing as it has increased my authority to pray powerfully. Knowing the names of God, the name we can call on, will impact a thirsty soul. I read this last year and am reading it again. I cannot part with its truth!

I did a ladies Bible study last year on the names of God. Our group as a whole used this devotional to enhance our study and to deepen our understanding of the person of God. I recommend this devotional to anyone who longs to build a more intimate relationship with their Heavenly Father.
