Authors - Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith and Mary Southerland
Type: Religious Devotional, meant for women
The outline of the book is each week five names are talked about, with one day given for reflection on the previous five days. 40 names are talked about in total. Some of the words used are different to me than I expected, but the names are fully explained, biblical references are given, and a brief story is told about how the meaning of that name became real in the life of the author.
It's a good book. My son and I are not doing the reflection page. We just talk about each name as we do it. He's learning much, as am I.
Would I recommend getting this book? Definitely! It's a good read and not expensive. It gives a good basis for continuing your own study should you so desire.
What would I change? More actual references to where the name is used throughout scripture. A linking of the name to Christ's work as well where applicable. But as a devotional, it's one of the better ones I've come across. :) And that fact that my son enjoys going through the book with me... how could I complain about that? :)
