When God Whispers Your Name
"When God Whispers Your Name" by Max Lucado is a fantastic book. I was really looking forward to receiving this book because of Lucado's impressive reputation. I had never picked up any of his books before, so was really intrigued to finally read his work. "When God Whispers Your Name" is a fantastic book in which Lucado incorporates biblical truths into the everyday lives of people like you and I. Tying modern day people and stories to occurrences from biblical times like an absolute master, Lucado incorporates stories of the likes of Moses and Abraham and shows how those stories are still relevant today, and how God is still working through us today. Lucado inspires his audience like no other writer I've read from. "When God Whispers Your Name" makes you really feel like no matter what is going on in your life, it is for God's purpose. He draws fantastic parallels between famous biblical men and modern day man in an exceptional effort to show us that fundamentally, God hasn't changed, and that no matter what we are experiencing in our own lives, there is a purpose. Even when we don't understand the situation we are in, just as Moses probably didn't understand his own situation, in the end, there is a purpose and it is one that is of the Creator. I loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone who might need a little encouragement (and really, who doesn't?)!
