God Knows Your Name: In a World of Rejection, He Accepts You
By Catherine Campbell (Monarch Books, 2010)
Have you ever been at some fancy event and no one knew your name or cared to ask you who you are? Well, that is what happened to the author, Catherine Campbell; so instead of brushing off this disappointing few hours of her life, she delved into the Bible.
Catherine realized that, even though the people at the event didn’t care to know who she is, that God knows her name, as stated in Exodus 33:17 (NKJV), “So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”

Crocheted with entertaining stories, insightful nuggets, and thoughtful words, this book encourages and empowers the reader. The carefully arranged sentences in this book help the reader recognize their value and worth as an individual on this highly populated planet, and that, most of all, the Creator of the Universe knows who they are and knows their name.
“It never ceases to amaze me how totally relevant the Bible is to our lives today, even though its writings date back to millennia. It is undeniably God’s chosen form of communication to us, His creation. And yet the Bible does not merely record how God has dealt and does deal with mankind, but also how he relates to individuals. God is a personal God. He is concerned about us on a one-to-one basis; and God has no favourites,” (Campbell, 2010, p. 217).
Six main chapters capture the primary issues discussed in this book: Nameless, Hopeless, Worthless, Helpless, Powerless, and Loveless. There is also a prologue at the front and a note from the author at the back. This book would make a great addition to your personal library, as well as a memorable gift.
