The Names of God Bible- Ann Spangler

The Names of God Bible

Ann Spangler has written some amazingly indepth bible studies that have enlightened me on the women of the bible and the names of Jesus. When I saw that she was editing a Bible to come out I knew that it would be a Bible I would utilize often. Learning the different names of God has always been a desire of mine to grow more in my walk. The different names I feel describe the different character qualities of God, and allow me to express my inmost feelings more than just having one name for Him.
If you are a student of the Bible and desire a more intimate look at the names of God, this is a fantastic resource for you. I enjoy just looking through and calling out the names I read for God in this edition. Not only that but it can easily be used in church or research as it is a complete Bible in of itself.
Fantastic job by Ann Spangler in her research and depth of the names for our creator.

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.

I received a copy of this bible in exchange for an honest review.

  1. This sounds like a great resource. My church handed out a booklet with some of the names and I loved it.
