God Knows Your Name by Catherine Campbell

God Knows Your Name: In a World of Rejection, He Accepts You
God Knows Your Name by Catherine Campbell

Contemporary and biblical stories offer hope to those struggling with rejection For many people the idea that God likes us as individuals, just as we are, is often an unfamiliar concept, while rejection--by a partner, one's parents, an employer, or friends--is a fact of life.

This book encourages readers to embrace the truth of a personal God with whom we do not need to struggle to gain recognition, a God who intervenes and acts on our behalf, a God who knows our names

Each of the six chapters contains two stories dealing with situations of rejection. The first story concerns an individual from the Bible, explaining how God stepped in to change his or her situation, thus revealing how important the individual was to him.

The second, connecting story tells of a present day individual in similar circumstances and how God again positively intervened. These are true stories, using carefully researched material for authenticity and accuracy, and told with remarkable power and conviction.

My Take:  As Human beings we often think that God couldn't care about our everyday problems when there are so many bigger problems in the world, but in reality  He does,  He knows each of us by name and cares about us and our problems.  In this book Catherine Campbell takes a look at six different problems I am sure each of us have struggled with at some point in our lives.  They are Nameless, Hopeless, Worthless, Helpless, Powerless, and finally but certainly not the least Loveless.  She uses a Bible character to illustrate each of the above problems and and she adds a more modern day situation that helps with the illustration. In each story she shows how God really does know our name and cares about what happens to us.
