Book Review: When God Whispers Your Names- Max Lucado

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 give this a 4.3/5.0 (only because it started slow…Lol)

Product description: 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.
