Overview

When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado

Are you ready to hope again? Are you ready to let go of doubt and sorrow? Just listen carefully. God is whispering your name.

Somewhere, between the pages of this book and the pages of your heart, God is speaking. And He is calling you by name.

Maybe that's hard to believe. Maybe you just can't imagine that the One who made it all thinks of you that personally — that He keeps your name on His heart and lips.

But it's true. In the Bible and in the circumstances of your life, He whispers your name lovingly. Tenderly. Patiently but persistently. Let these stories remind you of the God who knows your name.

Some of the stories are from the Bible. Some are drawn from everyday life. Most are about people who are lost ... or weary ... or discouraged — just like you may be. If you let them, they will tell the story of your life. And the story of a God who speaks into your situation.

So listen closely as you turn these pages. Listen for the Father's gentle whisper that can erase your doubt, your sorrow, your weariness, your despair.

It really is your name that you hear, and the Voice that calls is more loving that your ever dared dream. Listen. And learn to hope again.

This book was the 'tow truck' that helped me come out of the spiritual rut I had been in for six years! Everyone should get a copy of this, especially if you're feeling wayward in your walk with Christ. I would like to give copies of this book out to friends and family who are searching for a deeper committment to Him.

This book has been a blessing upon blessing upon blessing for me! I love it so much and I not only read it for my personal spiritual growth needs but also use it as a tool for teaching. Inside you will find a series of unrelated chapters, though they all contribute to bring you more understanding in your personal walk with Christ. Each chapter is almost like a little devotional for the day. this is definitely not a book that you just want to read through and finish in one sitting. The end of each chapter really causes you to pause and reflect because of all the information you are absorbing. I would recommend this book to any and every christian that desires new insight in their relationship with God and also for those that are going through a really hectic and stress-filled time. (Chapter 11 The Choice is the perfect chapter to read to yourself every morning before facing the uncertainties of the day. It brings me to tears every time.) I would just really encourage you to read this book with an open heart and prayerful spirit and allow God to work in you through it. Five gold stars for this book(: I received this complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson Publishing through their BookSneeze program.

When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado, is an inspirational book that contains stories and scripture, to show the reader that God cares about them. He takes common bible stories and everyday run-ins and turns them into a reminder of how much God cares. Every chapter leaves you with an emotional sigh and a mental shakedown as to how you could forget such a loving God. This is my second book by Max Lucado and I really enjoyed it, once I got over the hump. Personally I am not fan of slow starting books, and I’m going to be completely honest it started slow so I put the book down, for a month before I started reading again. I came to realize that the book was not slow I just was not use to this particular writing style. Lucado writes as if you are having a conversation face to face. Every chapter is either a personal story or scripture made simple. And who doesn’t like a relatable story and easy to read scripture? At the end of every chapter I felt as if he reminded me of how much God really loves and cares for me. And sometimes I even chastised myself when I would remember some of his acts of love. And that is the point of the book. Even when you don’t see him, he sees you. When you feel alone he’s always there. And when you feel as if there is no way out he’s there making a path for you. I

The first time I read this book was when I was 17. I had decided to make some changes in my life, and this book really opened my eyes more to who Jesus is and several things He went through His life.

Extremely thought provoking. Max Lucado's gift to relate scripture to every day life is truly inspired.

Max Lucado, really knows how to write and reach out to everyone. If your a Christian or just an average reader you will find out or noticed that God really is talking to you throught this book. While I was reading this book I was fasting, and really help me uplift my faith and notice that God was with me, and that he hasn't finish working with you yet. Main theme of this book, is that God knows everyone by name and that he has called you with a purpose and for a reason.

This book is comforting and demystifys christianity. It is also very funny in some areas. I've purchased two other books by him based on this book.

I have always enjoyed reading books by Max Lucado. I have read many of his children's stories, including all of his Wemmick stories, and several Spiritual Growth and Christian Thoughts books. I was happy to have the opportunity to read When God Whispers Your Name. In this book, like many of his others, Lucado gives you a glimpse into his own lives and the lives of those around him whom he has had the opportunity to minister to and some who have written to him specifically. Lucado writes very brief chapters in this book, which is his overall goal; because he knows that our time is precious to us. Because of the brevity of these chapters, it not only makes the reading very easy, but it also allows you to instantly reflect on what he is saying and to take something away from each chapter without being bombarded by fact after fact. I had several chapters that I bookmarked in order to go back to when I want something specific to read or when I want to use the book as a book study or devotional. This is also possible, because included with the book are discussion questions, verses to look up, and thoughts to pray about related to the book. As always, Lucado never disappoints. I am heading back to download another of his!

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.

When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado Lucado has been my favorite author from the moment I read the first Lucado book. You can always count on him to be inspirational and motivational and I love that about a writer. This book deals with everyday people and how we often fail to understand our own good fortune as we are loved and adored by the creator of the Universe! God knows everything about us, even has the hairs on our heads numbered and best of all God desires a personal friendship with us all. It is pretty heavy duty stuff to realize that the Creator of everything wants to be pals with us! Kinda helps those tough times to seem a lot less important. God will call you out, all you have to do is have the courage or desire or whatever you want to call it: to have an open will to respond to Gods calling. He always gives back way more than He gets. I highly recommend this book to anyone inneed of motivation or whos spirits have been running a little low lately. Heck, Id reccommend any Lucado book for any occassion; hes simply my favorite. I have a permenant collection of books (most of what I read I give away) and every Lucado book I have has earned a spot on that permanent collection. I have bought more Lucado books as gifts than anyother writer because he is simply the best motivational writer I have found and he uses Biblical verses to bring home his messages. When God Whispers Your Name is a great book for anyone who needs a little boost. It is full of short stories about every day people and how we are not nearly as mundane as our lives lead us to feel because we dont stop and realize that God has us in His heart!

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. 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. 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.

I really enjoyed this book as well as Lucado's other writings. He has such a great gift of being able to take simple stories and make such strong and good points through them which are applicable to our lives.In every day language and using word pictures anyone can understand and relate to, we are reminded of how much God loves us and therefore enables us to extend that love to those around us. There is also a study section in the back of the book with some thought provoking questions about each chapter of the book. I was greatly reminded about the things that we as "Christians" can forget. I was reminded to pursue Christ, not religion.
