Book Jacket:

Have you ever thumbed a baby name book and wondered about the origin of each name? Did their meanings give you insight to the character of friends, relatives and yourself? Well, what about the names of God? God has 1,000 names and Elmer L. Towns gives reference to 365 contained in the Bible. In 365 Ways to Know God, Towns peels the layers back on God’s character, he enables the reader to delve deeper into his/her spiritual walk with daily devotionals featuring comprehensible teachings and scripture readings.

“Elmer wrote those books to give us information on God’s names and to help us understand the nature of God from His names. Many people used them in their Bible studies or Sunday School classes. Now, in this devotional, he writes to our hearts so that we can feel and apply God to our everyday living,” says author Tim LaHaye in the book’s foreward. “Through the names of God, we can touch God each day in a new and different way; but most important, God can touch us daily.”

For those eager to see their lives transformed and know God in a more thoroughly profound way, 365 Ways to Know God is an answer to prayer. A once intangible being will become a friend on a first-name basis. The passages of Towns’ book not only educate, but also gently implore the reader to meditate on and surrender themselves to the awesomeness of God. With each reading, one’s heart turns to worshipful awe at the enormity of God’s nature.
