When God Whispers Your Name Review

Book Description

Do you find it hard to believe that the One who made everything keeps your name on His heart and on His lips? Did you realize that your name is written on the hand of God (Is. 49:16)? Perhaps you've never seen your name honored. And you can't remember when you heard it spoken with kindness. In this book, Lucado offers the inspiration to believe that God has already bought the ticket-with your name on it.

My Review:

If you haven't figured it out by now by perusing my reviews, I really enjoy books written by Max Lucado.  The way he writes helps me to see a different aspect of God in every book, from childrens, to fiction to study.  This book lives up to that, so much so that I have suggested it to my women's group at church.

There are 3 sections, the Song of the Minstrel, The Touch of the Master, and the Guest of the Maestro.  Each section has short chapters that can easily be read in a short amount of time (waiting for dinner to cook, waiting for the kids to come out of school etc) but they are really powerful.  The discussion guide at the end of the book includes questions for each chapter that will help you to reflect on what you read, gives you scripture to guide you into digging deeper and even suggests which chapters to read together due to a common theme.

I laughed out loud, I cried, I had "ah-ha" moments, but most of all I was reminded just how present God really is in our lives if I just hush up and look for Him!  Another Lucado winner!
