I just finished reading “Witness for His Names” by Jeffrey R. Holland
Quick Take: Interesting little book on the many names/titles of Jesus Christ in scripture.
In “Witness for His Names,” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland gives a brief explanation of 158 different names/titles of Jesus Christ in scripture.
For each of the names, Elder Holland provides the locations in scripture and a historical and religious explanation. Each page has 1-3 names/titles of Jesus. For many titles, I would have liked more detail (most only provide a paragraph or two), but I am sure his goal was not to give an exhaustive explanation.
I’m not sure most people would enjoy reading this cover to cover. I chose to read a few pages each night before bed. So, it took me a while to get through such a short book. But it was nice to go to sleep with Jesus on the brain. This will be a great reference when I come across the various names of Jesus in my scripture study. I could also see it being excellent reading material during the sacrament.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read.
