Daily Reflections on the Names of God: A Devotional (Revell) by Ava Pennington Daily Reflections on the Names of God - lo-res

Review by Marti Pieper

Would you like to spend a year getting to know God in a deeper, more intimate way? Would you like to spend time acquainting yourself with the details of His character and meditating on how they affect your life? Would you like to immerse yourself in Him?

If these questions intrigue you, you’ll want to pick up a copy of Ava Pennington’s recent release, Daily Reflections on the Names of God: A Devotional (Revell). The author organizes her work around God’s character and attributes rather than particular dates, so you can begin your reading any day of the year.

The strength and focus of Daily Reflections on the Names of God lies in its author’s deep knowledge of His Word. Pennington opens our eyes to God’s names and essential qualities by putting them into language we can understand and sharing insights that bring them life. Each devotional ends with questions and challenges that allow the reader to move from understanding to application.

Would you like a theology course in a personal, practical package indwelt by the heart and Spirit of God? Spend a year with Daily Reflections on the Names of God and watch how He changes your life.
