Inhaltsangabe zu „Knowing God by Name: A Girlfriends in God Faith Adventure“ von Sharon Jaynes

Redeemer. Healer. Provider. How will you encounter God today?    Throughout Scripture, God reveals His complex character by identifying Himself by different names—names that shed light on who He is and how we should relate to Him. In this engaging book, the popular Girlfriends in God devotional team introduces you to forty of those names, each of which invites you to glory in a different aspect of our amazing God.   In each day’s reading you’ll encounter personal, inspiring stories and biblical truths that lead you to a deeper understanding of who God is and what He does on your behalf. You’ll be fed with Scripture that you can apply to your unique circumstances. And most important, as you come to know Him by name, you’ll draw closer to God and learn to trust Him more fully.   Perfect for personal study and for discussing with girlfriends, prayer partners, or small groups, this eight-week daily devotional features: • a weekly guide to deeper study, reflection, and prayer • creative ideas to help you apply new insights • journaling pages • a pronunciation guide for God’s Hebrew and Greek names   Begin today with Knowing God by Name—and grow closer to the One who knows you by name.   “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.” —Liz Curtis Higgs, author of The Girl’s Still Got It

    Knowing God by Name is an eight-week devotional exploring different aspects of God’s character. Throughout the Bible, God reveals His complex character by identifying Himself by different names. In this inspiring book, the Girlfriends in God Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith and Mary Southerland look in detail at forty of those names. Each week consists of five days’ devotional reading followed by one reflective study day. Each day’s reading includes personal stories combined with biblical truths and closes with a prayer. If, like me, you are a subscriber to the daily Girlfriends in God email devotionals, many of the personal stories the authors share in this book will probably be familiar to you. On their website, the authors have provided additional free video content for each week, which is a nice touch. Other special features include journaling pages at the end of each section and a pronunciation guide for God’s Hebrew and Greek names. While I really like the idea of journaling pages, they don’t really work for me in the eBook version. I found that a little frustrating and would therefore definitely recommend getting the print version instead. I also have to admit that I would have preferred the questions to be spread throughout the week rather than having so much content to work through on one day at the end of each week. At times I felt rather overwhelmed by this. On the whole, this is still a very worthwhile devotional book I’d recommend wholeheartedly. It really helps getting to know the different aspects of God’s character and is a great introduction to a number of His names found in the Bible.
