This book reveals the real, whole name of God and its place within each of us:
Of the many names of God commonly used in the Bible and other sacred literature, none is God's real name. Every God-name, including YHWH, reflects only one of God's many aspects, such as the loving creator, the militaristic authoritarian, or the all-knowing judge. None embodies the wholeness, the totality, the full Essence of God. Who then are we to speak to when we seek God? If you can't truly know something until you know its name, how can we truly know God?
This in-depth exploration of God's name includes spiritual techniques, poems, guided prayers, and meditative chants to bring each of us into personal, intimate, and purposeful relationship with God. By knowing the real name of God, we can affirm the connection to the Divine at the core of our being. We can touch the face of God that resides deep within us all.
