When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado

When God Whispers Your Name

One of Max Lucado’s greatest gifts is the ability to retell biblical stories in a modern fashion and make it so real that you think he’s telling your story. He draws you in with little effort and shows you God at work in your life. This book testifies to the power and persistence of the Creator to know each of His creations by name. Through moving encounters of biblical stories, Lucado reveals the hope that God knows and whispers our names.

The three sections, the Song of the Minstrel, The Touch of the Master, and the Guest of the Maestro, have short chapters that can easily be read in a short amount of time. This book discusses how to listen and hear when God whisper’s your name. Lucado tells the modern story and then identifies the biblical counterpart. He does so in a way which holds the reader’s interest and is never boring. 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 and even suggests which chapters to read together due to a common theme, to help the reader in their relationship with God.

If you need some help to get inspired Max Lucado is just the author and recommend you add this book to your reading list. This book would make a great gift or anyone for any occasion.

I received a free copy of this E-book for my Nook from Thomas Nelson as part of their Booksneeze Blogger program.
