Book Review - Knowing God By Name


In ancient times, names held power and significance, representing a person’s future or personality.

 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.

Each of the eight weeks concludes with a reflective study and action steps to encourage further prayer and dialogue between you and God—and also with your girlfriends, prayer partners, or small group. Special features include journaling pages and 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 is available right here on our website or you may purchase your copies by clicking on the one of the online retailers below.


  This is a very powerful book, yet was easy to read and understand. I really loved learning all about the names of God, what they mean and how I can apply this truth to my walk with the Lord.

This book has 8 weeks of study and there is a section for each day that goes into the name of God for that day and a Scripture for study. The explanation of the definition of the particular name is very concise and goes into detail so we can truly understand the character of God. At the end, there is a prayer for each day.

Day 6 was my favorite day as this was a review of what we had learned for the week. It has questions and Scriptures to meditate on. Then you write out the names of God and their meanings in your own hand. I just loved all this because by answering the questions, filling in the blanks and writing it all out, it helped me to retain what I had learned for the week.

By the time you finish this book, you will truly understand the names of God and what they mean for you. The character of God is so amazing and I was so blessed by reading this book! It touched my heart and truly made me understand what an awesome God we have.
