Havergal, Francis Ridley
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 with us! 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 parents and children to read together. Every chapter includes questions for family discussion and an activity.
