Sometimes you can have more than enough books on the same subject as is the case with the book I am now reviewing thus the question becomes: Is this book necessary? I chose to review Knowing God by Name: Names of God That Bring Hope and Healing out of curiosity.
What makes Knowing God by Name unique is the authors’ approached.This is not a book that simply gives you various Greek and Hebrew names of God. Knowing God by Name reveals who “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14)is to the person of man.
El Elyon, El Shaddaai, Jehovah Jireh (chapter 1); Jehovah Rophi, Jehovah Makkeh (chapter 2); Jehovah Nicssi (chapter 3); Jehovah Tsebbaioth (chapter 4); Jehovah Shalom (chapter 5); Jehovah Tsidkenu (chapter 6); Jehovah Shammah (chapter 7) Jehovah Rohi (chapter 8); Immanuel (chapter); as well as Forgiveness and Intercessor are the “I AM” revealed in the book. Each of these Names many of us are already familiar with.
Knowing God by Name is not so much about the Names of God as it is how His name manifest in the life of the believer. Because of his easy to understand writing style I recommend this book to anyone who seeks better understanding as to who God is and how he or she can use His character to bring hope and healing.
Pastor Wilkerson went home to be with the Lord April 27, 2011 thus this book is a reprint.
I received a complimentary copy of in exchange for an honest and fair review.
