My Thoughts on The Names of God Bible
I tend to collect Bibles, different translations and different study bibles. And I am very happy to add The Names of God Bible to my collection. Often when I hear a different name for God, I wonder just what the full meaning of the name is, especially some of the names we don’t use so often. This Bible has a lot of information and features that help teach us about these names.
Some of the wonderful features in this Bible to help are reading paths-that give references with that particular name with scripture references; an alphabetical listing of the names and a list of Hebrew and Aramaic names; it has a topical prayer guide for these names; a table of the names of God; also you will find an introduction to each of the books of the Bible which include the key names of God in that book. And one thing I really need that this book has is a pronunciation guide to help you pronounce all of these names. I know no Hebrew at all, so this is a feature that is special to me.
One feature I really like it the short devotional this Bible has of each of the Names of God they have listed here. These devotionals are most interesting to read because they have a lot of special information about the names. Also as you read the Old Testament scripture that have these names, this Bible uses the Hebrew names of God, which is sometime confusing because you have to switch back to see which name it is. Unless however you memorize the names before you read the scripture.
I highly recommend this Bible as an addition to your Bible Study tools. You can’t go wrong with owning it. This special Bible will just be one more awesome study tool you can use as you study God’s word. I plan to keep mine just for this reason.

What People Are Saying about GOD’S WORD Translation
“An easy-to-understand Bible. . . . It is a wonderful version.”–Rev. Billy Graham
“A remarkably fresh, accurate, and readable translation that communicates well the original text for modern readers. An outstanding achievement.”–Dr. David Dockery
“The Bible is the means God has chosen to reach out in human language, reveal the essence of his relational heart, and relate the Good News of his redemptive plan. GOD’S WORD Translation presents that message in a way that makes sense to readers of all ages.”–Josh McDowell
“Even if the rather prolific output of modern translations, paraphrases, and versions of Scripture should increase, this particular linguistic achievement, GOD’S WORD, will rank among the top contenders with the Bible-reading public.”–Dr. D. James Kennedy
“GOD’S WORD is very possibly the most accurate English translation of the original text available today. A must-read for twenty-first century Christians.”–Dr. Larry Richards
