The book provides a nice set of 66 devotionals centered on the various names given to Jesus in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Each entry is one or two pages in length and consists of five elements: 

* IN TEN WORDS OR LESS: A “nutshell” glance at the name or title.
* DETAILS, PLEASE: A longer explanation, incorporating information from throughout God’s Word.
* ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES: One, two, or several other key scriptures.
* WHAT OTHERS SAY: A memorable quotation from a pastor, theologian, or Christian author.
* SO WHAT? An inspirational or devotional thought as a personal takeaway. 
(Kent, pg. 5)

The entries are devotional and practical in nature - not scholarly, per se. Scripture quotations are taken from the King James Version, but the devotional entries would work as well with any modern translation. The layperson should be satisfied with the book as a month’s or two for daily devotions.  However the preacher should see the book as a starting point while planning to consult more material (dictionaries, lexicons, encyclopedias, etc.) while preparing a sermon or teaching material. The book will likely find a place in the church library for general use by the congregation.

Who Is Jesus? by Paul Kent is a good resource to use in your study of Jesus. This book goes through 66 names and attributes of Jesus. Giving descriptions,  Bible verses and applications of each. I recommend this book for any person looking to study Jesus.

Laid out in an engaging style, this book offers an interesting list of descriptions of Jesus. While some of them seemed like a stretch, I appreciated that all were completely supported by scripture references to go back to for further study. The "So What?" section at the end of each description gave nice tidbits of application to real life.
