Knowing Him by Name is a book of 336 short devotional readings based on the names and references to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The names of God reveal details about his character. A person knowing these names, and the context in which they occur in Scripture, will be able to better understand the nature of God. The aim of every Christian should be to increase our knowledge of God. In turn, what we know about God should help transform us into his likeness as we apply these insights to our lives. ""Knowing Him by Name exposes us to the glorious nature of our Triune God. Short devotional explanations of the biblical names for God, coupled with reflective thought-starters, prompt us to contemplate important implications for our own lives. Dr. Larking reaffirms the loving heart of God, the depths of his grace toward us, and the veracity of the faith we profess as Christians. I recommend this valuable resource to anyone who desires to know God more."" --Peter W. Law, President, ENGAGE International ""As a teacher and church musician I understand the importance of truly understanding a person's character. This builds stronger relationships and inspires honest self-reflection that can then be reapplied to our own lives. These short, easy-to-read devotionals help us to worship and reflect on a deeper level. Lewis' prayer that we may 'know him more' is answered. A must read for students, worshipers, and all who want to know God more deeply."" --Margaret Jennings, Head of Prep Music, Ipswich High School (UK) ""There is no greater thing than to know God. But to know him, we need to know his character. Dr. Larking helps us do just that by looking at the various names for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Informative and interesting, these short devotions provide readers with a multifaceted view of God's character. However, knowing God is more than being informed; to know him is to experience him, that is, to experience his character. Through brief reflections Larking provides practical encouragement and opportunities to experience God's character in our lives. Those who make use of these devotions will find their souls and minds continually challenged and refreshed."" --Alan Stanley, Formerly Brisbane School of Theology, Director of goEast Ltd. Lewis G.
