New Book Examines the One Unique Name for God that is His Name Forever
New book entitled His Name Forever: The Story Behind the Name of "God" reveals the true name of the god of the Bible and details why this name is rarely used. Readers will be challenged to rethink their understanding and practices.
- Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Newport News, VA-NC (1888PressRelease) June 29, 2011 - In most religious faiths, devotees can agree on the name of the one they worship. Yet for those who use the Bible as their holy book, there really is no clear consensus of the name of the god featured in the Bible. His Name Forever: The Story Behind the Name of "God" (144 pages, Authorhouse Publishing) not only identifies that name but helps readers to understand why the name became obscure. Author Iris A. Foreman takes her readers on a journey through the Bible and history as she reveals facts often overlooked or misunderstood.
Organized in a logical format, His Name Forever raises and then answers these questions: Just what is the true name of the god of the Bible? Is it God or the LORD as He is often called today? How did these terms come to be used in place of His name? Why is His name unknown by so many? Does it really matter what we call Him?
The original Hebrew words used in reference to the God of the Bible are critical to understanding His name and who He is. One particular Hebrew word used over 6,800 times in the Old Testament was declared by Him and others as His Name Forever. The translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek, Latin, and English resulted in new terms to call the Mighty One of Israel. These terms along with historical events of the Hebrew Israelite people and the birth of Christianity were pivotal in the move away from use of the Most High's name.
His Name Forever: The Story Behind the Name of "God" is an exposť and, therefore, different from typical books written on the names of God. Iris Foreman develops foundational groundwork of the Old and New Testament for Bible readers and others seeking to enhance their grasp of the Scriptures. The book challenges conventional thinking by introducing rarely explored, but verifiable, facts.
The book is now available in paperback (ISBN: 9781449040291) and e-book (ISBN: 9781449040307) and can be purchased online at http://www.Amazon.com and http://www.Authorhouse.com.
