Knowing God by Name by Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith and Mary Southerland

First let me say it is always more fun and interesting to read books by more than one author especially women. This was an 8 week 6 day devotional for women to get a more in depth study and relationship with a God. This book dives into who God is and how we as Christians can relate to him; thus invoking a more closer and personal relationship with the Father. Each devotional is based on one of God's names.  
Each devotion starts with an applicable verse, followed by devotional reading full of scripture ending with a prayer.  At first look I had the attitude of "another devotional about God we have the Bible and church isn't that enough". But this book gave me the opportunity that church doesn't allow...time to sit read and contemplate my relationship with my God. Each author took turns writing different devotions, so it was a refreshing and different insight every day. They were funny, real and encouraging. I appreciate their humor, candor and truth.
This book would be perfect for personal study or a group study.    
*This book was sent to me from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
