    Knowledgable. Going thru this devotional is very interesting and the text in the bible that is provided flows really well with what Kay Arthur is talking about. The names of God is something that has always been fascinating, and this just makes you love each name much more than before.

    What an incredible study!!! Walks you through the Hebrew names of God and how they were first introduced and understood by the Israelites. But builds the meaning into modern day Christ followers as well! Each one touched me deeper, bringing back memories of my life where God was faithful and revealed His nature to me. Ending with Jehovah-shammah and looking forward to the eternal kingdom when "the Lord is there!" Col 3:1-2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

    I have done considerable research on the names of God in the Bible including reading about a dozen of the best books on the subject. Kay Arthur's book is among the best (see my other reviews to find out which ones I consider to be best). Kay Arthur is interested in more than simply a study of names; she wants people to grow in relationship with the Lord. Her book facilitates that well. My biggest concern with books like this is that they are selective; there are about 500 names of God, Jesus and I have done considerable research on the names of God in the Bible including reading about a dozen of the best books on the subject.

My biggest concern with books like this is that they are selective; there are about 500 names of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the Bible and to limit any study to a few fails to do justice to God's full character. Also, God is a personality and to dissect Him into a name per chapter is artificial. Nonetheless, this is a pretty good book.

    I love re-reading this book. The names of God are plentiful and this book touches on a few, but it is powerful.

    This was chosen for an adult Sunday School class I have been taking. It is boring, and spouts a thoughtless fundamentalist theology. The author assumes that the writers of the Hebrew Testament were always looking forward to and predicting the coming of Jesus. Any decent Old Testament scholar will tell you that this is not taking the scriptures seriously in their own right, but using them for other people's purposes.

Any decent Old Testament scholar will tell you that this is not taking the scriptures seriously in their own right, but using them for other people's purposes. Many things in the Greek New Testament were written precisely to make them seem as though they were the fulfillment of Hebrew Testament predictions. So certain Christians feel that this proves Jesus is the savior--which is precisely what the writers wanted to make you think. The worst of it is at the end where the author sets out a chart of the end times that is based primarily on a misreading of Revelation, and bears no relation to the rest of her book--I guess she just wanted us to know! Studying the many names of God is about as interesting and useful as studying the many names of Santa Claus. Of course there are many names, and they can be traced to various sources and purposes. I am a serious and thoughtful Christian, and would advise others of that ilk to steer clear.

    First of all, I'll start by saying the subject matter of Lord, I Want to Know You could not be better -- the names of God are central to our understanding of the character of God.

So, while this particular system didn't especially appeal to me, it certainly does to some. I found I did not much care for Kay Arthur's writing style (examples, supporting verses, layout, even the editing), so while there were some gems embedded in the learning, I was distracted by what I found a bit basic and disjointed. Kay Arthur is known for her Precept Upon Precept method, which I have done a bit of, but not much. Perhaps you would get more out of this study if you are already a disciple of her system. For myself, I believe there are better books out there on the names of God.

    Kay Aruthur is excellent and this is not one of her inductive Bible studies so you don't need to know how to do those in order to go through this. I went through this for the second time with a small group and it was much more meaningful having others' input. We did this right after Edward Welch's When People are Big and God is Small. It was an awesome thing to read after learning about how much I feared people instead of God. My most enduring take away was from Arthur's explanation of what it m Kay Aruthur is excellent and this is not one of her inductive Bible studies so you don't need to know how to do those in order to go through this.

    I started a women's Bible study based on this book at my church, but I wasn't able to complete the study because of health issues. I read the rest of the book and answered the questions but didn't write the answers because I was reading on my Kindle. I definitely feel I learned more in the study than in the chapters I read on my own. The group discussion and the DVD teaching really made a difference.

    This was hard to rate. I loved learning more about the names of God. She has some great information and powerful insights. But I don't like how she can get off topic and tie the name to some issue (like salvation). Great info. But I just really wanted to be in the text to know the name + historical context. 5 stars when she's on topic. 2 stars when off topic (1/2 the book could have been cut). I got bored too. Had to work hard to finish. Companion videos same review. Some simmered with power, ot This was hard to rate. I loved learning more about the names of God.

    I couldn't put this one down. I think I finished the whole study in 3 days. I liked it so much I bought one for a friend of mine, used the information in this book to make daily prayer cards using the names of God as a gift for my mother then kept it for myself. She'll just have to wait til I get another creative urge. You will be glad you picked this one up. I did several other Kay Arthur studies after completing this one. I couldn't put this one down.

    Kay Arthur's "LORD" studies, especially this one, are a great introduction to the inductive study method. This book takes you through several of God's names, outlining His character and our response. Kay brings you right to the Word of God and helps you dig into it. I really enjoyed this study and learning more about God's character. Originally I did the study in a group, but it would be fine to do this study by yourself.

    I'm doing this as a Bible study with 3 other ladies. Our discussion have been good and this is an atypical Kay Arthur book as it does not tons of homework that folks do not have time for. Our group is from various denominations and so the discussion part of the names of God has been dynamic. The best part is the tenderness and personal application of what the names mean to draw you closer to who God is to you. I'm doing this as a Bible study with 3 other ladies.

    My understanding of who God is has expanded so much through this great study. Each name share a different attribute of who God has revealed himself to be through his word. I skipped Jehovah Rapha, The Lord our Healer, because I don't agree with the author's view of healing sin sickness primarily and not physical healing. To me, this take is faith weakening, not building. Other than that, I would recommend this as a valuable study for any serious student of the Word.

    I read this for a Bible study. I don't think it lends itself well to group discussion but to be fair we got off track a lot. I think this book took an interesting topic and made it boring by being very repetitive and asking questions that were so simple that you over think them to the point of annoyance because it seems so basic it makes no sense to even be asked as a question. It's not a terrible book and definitely covers an interesting topic but could be written better. I read this for a Bible study.

    Kay Arthur does an ok job in this book. I am not sure if it is the format or style, but the topic is by far one of the best you could study. About 4/5ths of the way through it became interesting, and I am not sure why. Overall, because of the ending I give it 3 out of 5 stars. God's many names reveal so much of His person, and she really helped me in the study of His name being Jealous and the illustration God gave to the prophet Ezekiel. Some study helps are to be found throughout the book. Kay Arthur does an ok job in this book. I am not sure if it is the format or style, but the topic is by far one of the best you could study.

    Having encountered Kay Arthur's style of Bible study - which I really don't like- I also found this book., despite the topic, to be very boring. I'm a heavy reader but something about this was dry and the main reason I wanted to finish it was to get it off my shelf. I also did not like the study questions. Instead of an enjoyable read, this occasionally felt like dreaded homework. Surely there is a better book out there on the names of God.

    This was a fantastic study that you can easily do on your own or with a group. Each day you study the different names of the Lord and what those names mean in application to your life, for instance, Elohim (the Creater), El Roi (the God who sees), Jehovah-jireh (the Lord will provide), Jehovah-raah (the Lord is my shepherd), Jehovah-shammah (the Lord is there), and others.

    In typical Kay Arthur fashion, this book is one that causes you to look deeper into the meanings of all words used to describe God - and the contexts in which they are used. It is not a book to read if you don't have time to study. I'd highly recommend reading it with a group of friends so that you can truly discuss the questions that arise.

    We read this in our Ladies Neighborhood Bible Study Group. Found it most interesting the different names for God, the various meanings, how they related to our daily lives and to Biblical History, etc. We meet every two weeks and we did a chapter at each meeting. Long Chapter two meetings. So took almost a year to read it.

    This is one of the best devotionals I have done in a long time. Each chapter spoke to me, and I felt like everything was applicable to my life. There is definitely freedom in declaring the names of the Lord and in understanding the specificities of his name. I rarely recommend a devotional, but I certainly recommend this one.

    It was in depth and thorough. However, the author doesn't give the answers to the questions she asks so sometimes it's hard to tell if you're understanding the content. I suppose she doesn't give the answers so that you will think more about what is being asked and so that you will discuss with others. I think that when choosing this book discussing the contents with another is a good idea. It was in depth and thorough.

    This book covered 15 different names of God in a devotional 42 day study format. There were study questions along the way. I found myself spending more time on some days and much less time on other days. This is an older edition. Overall, I'm glad I completed this as it helped me understand more of the fulness of God.
