I had to read this for school and WOW there was so much more to it than I expected! This tiny book is packed with information about the 12 original Hebrew names of God used in the Old Testament. So so good.

If you have never seriously studied through these precious names of God I would highly recommend this book. Written in 1944, Mr. Nathan Stone has really done is homework in his research into the meanings of the names of God.
