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

This was definitely an interesting devotional to read and definitely was different than I was expecting. I am not sure what I was expecting to be honest since the title of the book is Knowing God by Name.

This team of authors have created a wonderful devotional based on the names of God.  I am always confounded by the vast array of names that our pastors use when referring to God. So this was an excellent resource for me -- and all scripture based info. I took notes and have written down the forty names they discuss. This is a fantastic study giving...

First let me say it is always more fun and interesting to read books by more than one author especially women.

Each devotional is based on one of God's names.  Each devotion starts with an...

This is an excellent book to use as a guide when studying the names, titles and characteristics of God.  It's written in an easy to understand format, yet touches the deeper insights the Bible has to tell us about God.  I led a Ladies Bible study weekend retreat and ordered this book for each of the ladies in attendance, as we were studying ten (of the many) names of God.  We were on the beach so after the study we each went out to the sand...
