Knowing God by Name by David Wilkerson

Rather than a scholarly treatment of the names of God, Wilkerson has chosen to write about how the names of God give us heart-knowledge of Him.  God is infinitely multi-faceted, so we need to understand that every time He reveals one of His names in scripture, He is giving us a picture of how He relates to us.

Abraham, friend of God, received many such names.  Wilkerson explains what those names mean to us today.  As Pastor Wilkerson points out, God “revealed these names to His people only as they needed them.”  After all, it means much more to hear from Jehovah Jireh when He is actually engaged in providing for your desperate need!

This is a user-friendly book for all Christians, not just theologians or teachers. 

I received a free electronic copy of this book from Bethany House/Chosen Books for my review.
