Book Review: I Know His Name

Do you know God’s name – His many names?

Have you discovered the power in the names of God?

Have you dug deep into their meaning, searched the scriptures, interwoven their syllables within the fabric of your own life?

There’s something to those names – His names. Wendy Blight knows that. An encounter with a friend at the bowling alley solidified it. This study, I Know His Name, emerged as a result of that bowling alley conversation.

 Elohim

How about Elohim? He’s the One who created us. He created the earth and its foundations, the stars and moon, too.

Wendy starts here.

Have you ever sat outside on a clear, dark night? Only the stars twinkle, but the moon beams bright. It becomes a nightlight washing the land clean of darkness. Elohim created it. Beautiful, isn’t it?

What about the roar of an ocean? Have you sat at its threshold, the drumbeat of its cadence pounding loudly in your ear? Have you watched it rise to race forward, only to topple over and crawl low as the waves rush to go….somewhere? Elohim knows where.

Or the tide – have you ever wondered why it gives so generously, offering and depositing its goods at your feet, but then whisks those goods away once again to who knows where. And the pattern repeats, over and over.

These were all things I pondered as Wendy took my hand and walked me through Elohim. We ventured into verse after verse, thought after thought, and revelation after revelation. It’s easy to take creation for granted. I do it all the time. You, too?

But when the thought of Elohim and His creation come together in a girl’s brain, it’ll change the view.

Look at that beautiful blue expanse of sky.

Our dog and the emotions she so seemingly shares are dancing to life.

Elohim ~ your creation amazes me.

I’ve thought these – and more.

In this study, Wendy encourages a pause and ponder, a revelation and celebration of how magnificent Elohim and His creation are.

The walk with Wendy spanned one chapter. That was my preview, and it was a week’s worth. But there’s more. There are:

  • Eight names
  • Five chapters
  • Memory scriptures
  • Prayer
  • Questions for consideration and deeper thought.

It’s a full belly banquet of the names of God.

It’s an opportunity to deepen our walk with God. I’m going to grab a copy of I Know His Name, maybe even share it with a group. Although I’ve studied the names of the Almighty, this opportunity seems different. (I’m cocking my head and squinting an eye.)

There’s more to uncover, and I believe I Know His Name will help pull away the blanket, exposing understanding. There’s more to grasp, and I believe Wendy’s words pointing toward God will handhold us in that opportunity.

I Know His Name is available now. Find out where on Wendy’s page.

A free devotional? Yes. You’ll also find that on Wendy’s page.

An upcoming, online group study? Yes. (Sign-ups begin Feb. 15) Information can be found on, you guessed it, Wendy’s page.

Just so you know, a free sample chapter was provided to me from the publisher. But this review? It’s my own, unbiased opinion.

  1. Amen! You paint such a beautiful picture of Elohim. It’s such an excellent name for reminding me of God’s power, goodness, beauty, and even his grace–which seems so evident all over His creation. Thank you for this encouraging reminder of how awesome God is. It’s a wonderful way to begin my morning.

  2. I am so excited for the P31 OBS on this book next month. It looks fantastic! Looking out at the freshly fallen snow today and thanking Elohim today. And thanking him for you too, friend. xoxo

  3. Hi Kristi!
    This review piqued my interest from the first few sentences. I am not unacquainted with the names of God, but like you, something of what you shared said there is more to discover. I have a stack of books waiting for me to read and I had told myself I would whittle them down a bit before buying another, but you have tempted me to not wait long to explore this treasure!
    Thanks!
    Blessings on your day!
