Book Review of The 99 Names of God by Rabbi Yonassan Gershom:
Although The 99 Names is intended for Muslim children, it’s really a treasure for all ages and faiths.

Using the recently published book, The 99 Names of God, author and illustrator, Daniel Thomas Dyer, will explore some of the Names using song, stories and interactive reflections. Book your tickets!

Young and old are encouraged to see how we learn spiritual and ethical lessons in the natural world, how we are nourished by it inwardly and outwardly, and that outside of the human soul, it is nature that is the ultimate playground for the manifestation of Allah’s Names…
