About "Bible Names: Presenting Gospel Truths to Little Children Using Bible Names and Their Meanings"
One of the first words a child learns to recognise, and then to write, is his own name. He identifies not simply with its shape and sound, but often with its origin, especially if he shares it with someone he loves and respects.Bible names were often derivatives of Greek or Hebrew words of very significant meaning. Some were chosen by the baby's parents as an expression of their hopes for its future, while others were given, or changed, by God himself in order to describe a new identity that he wished the person to embody.Bible Names, written for the primary age-group, presents simple biblical truths about God's promises, repentance, faith, and obedience, using the lives and names of some well-known Bible characters, presented in chronological order. Some activities are provided to help children recap the main facts in each lesson.*Bible Names is a sequel to A Bible Alphabet, Bible Numbers and Bible Animals which are also published by the Trust.
