In today’s Western culture, very little meaning is placed on names. In fact, names are often viewed merely as tags or labels by which to differentiate one person or object from another. Yet Moses records God as having raised up His people, Israel, for the express purpose that His “name may be declared in all the earth” (Exodus 9:16). To comprehend the significance of this and so many other similar scriptures, one must begin with a proper understanding of the ancient Hebraic view of names. But Knowing God by Name is more than an explanation of ancient perspectives. It is an invitation into an entirely new yet timeless world of thinking and experience—a revelation that, for many, serves as the beginning of a deep and unfolding relationship with Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
