Item description for My Fathers Names by Elmer Towns...
Overview You can tell a lot about a man by what others call him: father, husband, brother, leader. In the same way, you can learn much about God by understanding what He was called in the Old Testament. El Shaddai, Adonai, El Gibbor and Jehovah Melek are just a few of the over 80 names that people in the Old Testamentused to call upon God in difficult situations. In times of need or times of praise, they used specific names for God that focused on a certain characteristic of His, or on a promise that He made.

A Great Book Jan 16, 2003
I'll keep this short: It is a great book, one I expect to be very helpful to me in the future. (Christians: Beware of reviews of Christian books by people who are not Christians. They are entitled to their opinions, but they cannot possibly be objective.)
Blasephemous Mar 14, 2002
The book slurs and blasephems the divine name of G/D. I found it offensive and a waste of money and paper.
