An indepth look at the names of God as understood by the ancient Hebrews whose writings in the Bible are filled with vivid images of God lost through translation and culture.
From the Author
I wrote this book as a result of the many requests for the meanings of the various names of God in the Bible. This book details how the ancient Hebrews understood God from their cultural perspective. What is a name? In our modern western culture a name is simply an identifier but to the Hebrews, a name contained the whole of the individual. Probably the most common name of God in Hebrew is Elohiym and from an ancient Hebraic perspective this word means "The mighty one who yokes himself to his people".See all Product Description

This work clearly demonstrates that each letter of the Hebrew language (specially the ancient Paleo-Hebrew) has a meaning and life all its own. When combined into words, the words of Scripture truly jump to life before your eyes. As I was reading this book, I came to see Hebrew as more of a multi-dimensional language in which the character of Yahweh, Yahshua and the Ruach are intertwined.
I highly recommend "His Name Is One" to anyone seeking a richer meaning to Scripture and a deeper spiritual connection to the Almighty whom we serve.
Jeff's books help retrieve some of that lost heritage and introduces you to a God that is more awesome and more personal than you thought possible. I am anxious to read "Learn Biblical Hebrew"!

Potentially volatile issues such as the oneness of the Father and the Son and the trinity dissipate into obscurity when one becomes unshackled by Greco-Roman thought and dons a Hebrew mindset.
A must have book for anyone who wishes to immerse themselves in a whole new world that is at best only hinted at in mainstream Christianity.

Once you start reading it, it keeps you interested and, in spite of your own notion and interpretation, it will give you another perspective or a better one.
Of course I disagreed with some of its content because of my own training and background. Nevertheless, it allowed me to see that the highway used by many is not always the only or best way; the narrow way or local road allows me to see and know more about the place I am going to.
I already fell in love with Hebrew, this book simply added fuel to the fire.
