Every year, my New Year’s resolution is to be more consistent with my daily Bible reading to grow in intimacy with God and to strength my faith. Since I have integrated The Names of God Bible into my daily devotionals, I feel like I am being more diligent with each word I read and the meaning and implications of each passage.
Personally, I enjoy reading The New King James Version or The New International Version, but I found the God’s Word Translation to be very easy to understand and a good addition to my collection of various Bible translations. Because the translation is not one of my personal preferences, I use this book as a companion in to my Bible readings. I read a passage in my personal Bible and then reference the corresponding passage in The Names of God Bible. This works well for me but others may find it time consuming. If you enjoy the God’s Word Translation, then this step is unnecessary. Examples:
New King James Version, Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
The Names of God Version, Isaiah 9:6
A child will be born for us. A son will be given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. He will be named: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Sar Shalom.
This is not a study Bible in the sense that it has in-depth notes at the bottom of each page, but the beginning of each book gives a comprehensive summary of who the author is and how he saw God as well as important terms used throughout the book. Interspersed amongst the books are reference pages that expound upon the meaning and use of particular terms as well as key scriptures where the term is utilized.
The Names of God Bible is the perfect Christmas gift (the red and gold cover is particularly festive) for anyone from the aspiring biblical scholar to the Christian looking to strengthen and challenge their everyday faith journey.
