Book Review: Names for the Messiah

This is a look at the names for Jesus as found in Isaiah9:6. These are Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. There is a look at how people have seen and understood each of these. Then whether Jesus fit the title, and finally what was the interpretation of the way Jesus was a representative of each of these names. 
Names for the Messiah, Written by Walter Brueggemann, is actually a book to be read for Advent. It would be good to use as an individual or as a small group, over this time. Brueggemann always has such insight in his writings. I found this book to be inspirational and I will keep it in mind in December to re-read as it was meant. 
I was given this book by NetGalley and Westminster John Knox Press in exchange for my honest review.
