Finally had an opportunity this week to spend some time with a new study from Dr. Tony Evans. The Power of God’s Names was published earlier this year (2014) and is another great offering from one of America’s most dynamic preachers. Evans has been the Senior Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship for close to four decades and is a popular conference speaker.
“In biblical times, names communicated a person’s essence–their history, nature, or character. That’s why God revealed Himself by dozens of different names in Scripture. No single name could convey the fullness of His character and works. Learn the meanings of God’s names to know Him more fully and experience Him more deeply.” (from the cover)
A six session study, The Power of God’s Names examines 11 names of God. Filmed live, the DVD segments capture Dr. Evans’ signature energy and style. At an average length of 25 to 30 minutes, Dr. Evans intensity and the strength of his content will hold your members’ attention.
The member book includes a well-written set of opening questions designed to help members engage in the discussion. A viewer guide makes it easy to follow the Dr. Evans’ teaching. Each of the sessions conclude with a carefully designed set of discussion questions that will help members respond to what they have learned and experienced.
Each session in the member book also includes a set of five daily devotional studies that will help deepen your members’ understanding and expand application.
The leader kit also includes a copy of Dr. Evans’ book by the same title. Members that desire a deeper understanding of the names of God may decide to read the book in addition to completing the weekly devotionals.
The Names of God is a powerful study that will be just the thing for groups searching for deeper knowledge of God’s character. If you’re looking for a study that will show your members more of who God is, The Name of God ought to be on your radar.
