Ann Spangler is General Editor for the new Bible, “The Names of God Bible” God’s Word Translation published by Revell.

From the back cover:  • Discover the Hebrew names of God within the biblical text
Encounter God through prayers, promises, and devotional readings
Experience God’s character more deeply by studying his names

Open the door to a more intimate relationship with God

One of the best ways to get to know God on a deeper level is to know his names and titles as revealed in Scripture. Now the bestselling author of Praying the Names of God and Praying the Names of Jesus uncovers the richness of God’s character and love found in his names right within the Bible text.

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 connect with the Hebrew roots of their Christian faith and experience a deeper understanding of God’s character. 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 and study the names of God throughout Scripture

Name Pages feature
-background information associated with the most important names and titles of God
-key Scripture passages in which the name is revealed
-devotional readings for each of the featured names
-specific Bible promises connected to each of the featured names

Calling God by Name sidebars shed light on the relationship between biblical people and the specific names they called God

God likes to reveal Himself to us through His names.  God is a healer, God is a provider and God is our father, “Ab”.  Then Jesus reveals Him even deeper by moving Him from “Ab” (father) to “Abba” (daddy).  We miss all of this when we are reading other versions of the Bible, which is not to say that they are not spectacular, they are, it is just each version has its own flavor and “The Names of God Bible” helps us see God for who He really is by His names.

It is my opinion that everyone should own this book and live in these pages for a while.  It truly changes things when we realize How God is representing Himself and moves us closer to Him.  This is also a truly wonderful gift to give for anytime of the year and its value is everlasting.  I recommend it highly!
