Book review and giveaway: When God Whispers your Name

It's been a long time since I picked up my first Max Lucado book- over 15 years now.  However, I never cease to be amazed by his talent for writing simple yet profound books that get right to the point and speak directly to my heart.  One of the first books by Max Lucado that I read was When God Whispers Your Name. I read it at a time back in college when I was going through a rough time, and it really comforted and encouraged me back then.  It's been a long time since I re-read this book though, so was happy when the paperback edition showed up as a blogger option on Booksneeze. Here's a bit about When God Whispers Your Name, from the publisher's website:
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.
Even though I'm in a much different place in life when I first read When God Whispers Your Name, it was no less comforting, inspiring and motivating this time through. This book is full of personal stories from the author's life, as well as great stories from the Bible, told in a way that's relevant and understandable to our modern lives.  If you're feeling discouraged about yourself or your life, or could just use a reminder of how very much God loves you, I strongly recommend reading this book.  If you're thinking about using this book in a group study situation, it does include a handy discussion guide with questions and points for each chapter.

I'm giving away a copy of this book to one lucky reader. Please enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.




Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to review for myself, thanks to Booksneeze. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
