God's Names (Revised Edition, Children Desiring God)
“Nothing is more important than passing the truths of Scripture to the next generation! Grandparents and parents and all the extended family, as well as those who make up the church of the living God—all have a divine unction to pass along God’s truth to the hearts of our children! Sally Michael has given us an excellent tool in God’s Names to do just that! As a professor, I will use this resource to recommend to my students who are preparing to be wives and mothers and leaders in woman–to–woman ministries and childhood education. As a grandmother, I have an addition for church bags or Sunday boxes or for joint Bible study with my grandchildren.”See All

Westminster Bookstore Note: This book contains cartoon or artistic images of Jesus. There are many people in our constituency who, in a sincere effort to honor the second commandment, refrain from the use of any kind of drawings or pictures of Jesus, even if not intended for a worship context. Out of respect for those who take this position, we have sought to add a note to books in our children’s category which have drawings or depictions of Jesus so that they can factor that into their buying decisions, as they would if they could inspect the books physically.
When you want to get to know someone, where do you start? How do you introduce yourself? Usually you start with someone's name.
God knows this—and he doesn't have just one name to share use us, either! The Bible gives us many names for God and tells us what they all mean. And when we learn a new name for God, we learn something new about him, too!
This book is for you and your children to read together. Every chapter teaches something new and helps put you—and your children—on the right track in your relationship with God. God has left his names with his people so they can know him . . . and through these pages your children can know him too.
