Book Review: The Names Of God Bible And Giveaway!


This Bible is perfect for that a good friend who loves to study the Bible or a special woman who has influenced you in your own walk. This hardback edition is FILLED with resources to keep her digging into the Word all through 2012! Maybe you could get one for yourself and one for a friend and give it to her with a giftcard to Starbucks and a promise to meet regularly to talk over what you're learning. That's a gift that truly keeps on giving!

Since this Bible is truly filled with information, I decided to go ahead and post the write-up that the publisher did-- because otherwise I wouldn't do it justice. This new resource is one to check out for someone else... or put it on your wish list for yourself! :)

One of the best ways to get to know God on a deeper level is to know the names and titles both he and his people give to him. Now the bestselling author of Praying the Names of God reveals the richness of God's character and love found in his names. The Names of God Bible restores more than 10,000 occurrences of specific names of God--like Yahweh, El Shadday, El Elyon, and Adonay--to help readers

Discover the Hebrew names of God within the biblical text
Understand the meaning and significance of each name
Encounter God in a new way through prayers, promises, and devotional readings

Perfect for personal study, prayer, and reflection, The Names of God Bible includes these special features

more than 10,000 names and titles of God restored to their Hebrew equivalent and printed in brown ink to stand out within the biblical text
Names of God Reading Paths lead readers to the next reference of the name so they can pray the names of God throughout Scripture
Name Pages feature
- background information associated with 68 names and titles of God
- key Scripture passages in which the meaning is revealed
- devotional readings on each of the featured names
- specific Bible promises connected to each of the featured names
introductions to each book of the Bible highlight the main themes and list the names and titles that appear in that book
300 callouts highlight key Scripture for memorization and reflection
Calling God by Name sidebars shed light on the relationship between biblical people and the specific names they called God
topical prayer guide, pronunciation guide, name index, and Bible reading plans to assist in study

Anyone who desires a deeper understanding of God and new insights into the Bible will cherish The Names of God Bible as it opens a door into the Hebrew roots of the faith and the Scriptures.

This edition of the Bible sounds wonderful! Our English translations often don't paint the full picture of the names used for God. I'd love to have this!!

I would L O V E LOVE!!! to give this to my mom! She has taught me SO much in my walk with God. She has been there for me when I chose not to walk with God, and she has welcomed me back when I returned to God. She always has the best advice for me (including a teary phone call this morning) and I can't think of a better way to thank her than to give her a book that will help her explore God even further. Thank you for this opportunity (again)! crw.2006@gmail.com

Marybeth, I would love to win this book for a woman who is just beginning her journey with God. I had pretty much decided that I was going to get her a special bible for Christmas a few months ago, and this one seems perfect. Thanks for the very generous giveaway, and for giving me a chance to enter!

I would love to win this Bible and share it with my precious mom who has taught me most of what I know about God. She has taught Sunday School for years, but many people have learned about God from her life and her witness. This Bible seems like something we could study together.

This Bible sounds like a wonderful resource! I enjoy learning about the various names of God and their meanings, and I love the idea of reading the Scriptures with the original name in the text-I feel certain it would add a new depth of understanding to my personal Bible study. Thanks so much for making me aware of it, and a huge thanks for the chance to win!
