Our God is a loving, personal God and he wants us to know Him as well as He knows us.  We don’t need to be perfect.

Using both stories from the Bible and stories from today the reader learns how the characters dealt with feelings such as hopelessness, worthlessness and others.  And how they learned that yes, God knows their name and cares for them.

My thoughts-

This book captivated me from the beginning.  I enjoyed reading the Biblical account and then the account from today.  It helped me to see that the Bible stories are still relevant today and how they may relate to emotions that I may feel.  I hope that when other people read this book they see the same thing and then go read their Bible to learn more about God.

One problem I faced when beginning this book was that there were more female characters than I thought a man might be comfortable reading about.  I wasn’t sure if this book was just for women to read or if men were included in the readership.

The first time I read this book I must have been feeling hopeless, because that was the story that caught my eye.  I also enjoyed the story of Hagar.  I have never given much thought of the story from Hagar’s point-of-view.

I recommend that all should read this book and then read the different stories again when they feel the particular emotion, like powerless and loveless.

  1. Thank you Rani for reading my book 'God Knows Your Name' and I am glad that you found it helpful It's interesting that you wondered if it was a book suited more to women, and perhaps the cover might suggest that. There are however four stories in the book about how God has dealt with men in difficult circumstance so I hope that will encourage male readers to pick it up too. I'm glad that you found it 'captivating'. I know that's how I was when writing about these amazing people - captivated. Thank you for including a link to my website, where I'd be happy to meet up with your viewers. God bless you, Catherine

  2. Thank you so much for reading my book 'God Knows Your Name' I'm glad you got past wondering if it was just for women - it's not! Four of the twelve stories were about men. Perhaps using a woman on the cover is off-putting. Your comments are very useful for future planning, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Bless you!
