The idea that God is interested in us as individuals is an unfamiliar concept to many, while rejection has become a fact of life. This book encourages the reader to embrace the truth of a personal God; one with whom we do not need to struggle to gain recognition, who intervenes and acts on our behalf. A God who knows our name!

MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing ReadAugust 10, 2012MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is so awesome...it will warm your heart. It brings to life many Bible stories. Once I started I could not put it down.
Catherine Campbell has done such a wonderful job writing these stories, we go back in time, and then have it reinforced with a more recent time.
One example would be the unclean woman found in Marks Gospel, chapter 5:21-32....and then we find a story told by a Missionary about Bobula living in Papua New Guinea. The stories are so similar, and yet different. Yes God does know your name...you are given the chance of Redemption.
There are so many more stories and we are show how they apply in the present day. Love it!!
I will be sharing my book and recommending it to others! Thank you Catherine!

From the back cover: God loves us, just as we are. This book encourages us to embrace the truth of a personal God, the God who knows our name.
From the loveless Hagar of the Bible to the abused Donna of Dublin; from the hopeless leper of Mark's Gospel to the outcast Dalit of Hyderabad: each chapter introduces us to individuals accepted by a God who intervenes on their behalf. These are the stories of rejection and acceptance from the Bible and today-true, carefully researched, and told with remarkable power.
You move to a new city, your child starts school, you start a new job. What do these all have in common? In each place, at the beginning, it feels as though you are a nameless face who knows no one and no one knows you. It is a brutal feeling when you are referred to as the new kid or the new guy-no name, no identity. Perhaps you even felt that way in church, maybe you even feel that way now. Take heart, this seems to be a common problem to mankind. We seem to get lost in the shuffle and are forgotten. In "God Knows Your Name" Catherine Campbell gives us stories from the Bible and modern day that show individuals who felt nameless and forgotten. Then events transpired that let that individual know that not only were they not forgotten God knew who they were and used them for His purpose. It is a wonderful feeling to know that we are not nameless and alone. After all look what God has said, "for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name." (Exodus 33:17b). I found this to be a highly encouraging read that I am sure I will return to when I feel burned out, neglected or forgotten. This book is certainly a pick-me-up when I am down. It is also a great book to give as a gift to others who need this encouragement. I recommend this book highly.

LaTawnia Kintz5 Stars Out Of 5Catherine has captured the Father heart of GodAugust 6, 2012LaTawnia KintzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I feel reviewing books is a blessing not only for me but also for the author who took the time and effort to write a book on a subject that will interest someone out there in reader-land, and because of my review and the reviews of my fellow reviewers, that book is bought by many people.
Reviewing books is also a blessing especially for new authors with a voice that wants to be heard. So I get to "hear" what they are saying and pass it on to you.
Having said that, I have to say Catherine Campbell has written an outstanding book. God Knows Your Name: In a world of rejection, He knows you, is timely, timeless, and beautiful.
Many, many times I had tears streaming down my face as I was reading this very moving book. Oh how she brought to life those stories we read in the Bible: Hagar, the man healed of leprosy, the woman with the issue of blood and more.
Catherine combines a biblical character story with a contemporary story to reveal to us that no matter what others think about us, say about us, or even treat us, God knows our name and we are priceless to Him.
It doesn't matter if someone is born as a Dalit, or is merely a slave who must do their mistress's bidding, God knows our name. How transforming is that phrase when you think about it.
We live with so much rejection, yet, God is there, waiting for us, calling us by name, and Catherine has captured the Father heart of God with each portrait she has painted with her words.
This book will bring you to your knees in gratitude, reverence, and humbled before the One who knew each one of us before the before the foundations of the earth was laid.

onedesertroseSt. Paul, MNAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Feeling Rejected? Check out this book!August 6, 2012onedesertroseSt. Paul, MNAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Catherine Campbell, in God Knows Your Name, tells six in-depth stories from a mix of the Old and New Testament and correlates them to six present-day life stories, showing us how relevant God's word is for us today. They are based around the following six themes:
Catherine's rich story telling brings the stories from the Bible to life through her rendition of Biblical fiction. The stories themselves are real, but she adds the fictional aspect to make it more personalÃ¢â¬âreal people with real families. I loved this book, as it made the transition of the Bible stories pertinent, applicable and intimate for me today. It reminds me of Jesus telling stories to help us understand the concept He was making.
I appreciate the transparency of the people who were willing to share their stories with the author, in order to personalize the Scripture for us. I could have gone on to read more stories like this. I hated to see the book end.
When I was first a Christian, having never read the whole Bible, I used to think the Old Testament was irrelevant until I got into a Bible study program. Wow, did I ever change my mind! Catherine's book does the same thingÃ¢â¬âmakes the Bible relevant and personal for today! God Knows Your Name is powerful and insightful!
If you struggle in any of these ways, be sure to pick up a copy today and let God speak to you about His love for you. He really does know your name!

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5inspirational telling of Bible stories and moreAugust 6, 2012bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Do you sometimes feel like God doesn't even know you exist, let alone know what you are going through? Do you think the Bible is irrelevant to the trials you are experiencing?
Catherine wants you to know that in a world filled with rejection, "we are known to the God who created us and who gave up his Son to die for us on Calvary." (12) She writes of God's personal love for us in three ways. She shares her own story, the stories of others, and stories from the bible.
Catherine knows of God's love through her own experience. Their first child was born with a genetic disorder that left her severely disabled. She could not understand how that could be part of God's plan for her life. Then Isaiah 43:1 deeply impacted her life. She has since discovered that God desires to know personally those who feel unloved and rejected.
She shares true stories of people who have seen God's love transform their lives. Some are stories from foreign mission fields. Others could be the stories of your neighbors.
Catherine relates stories from the Bible in an amazing way. She chose stories of those whose lives were in shambles. People who were rejected and were full of heartache. She retells the stories with great insight, adding fictional details that set the stage. I have certainly read the story of the woman with the issue of blood many times (Mark 5:21-34). Catherine has brought the story alive, including all the possible cures the woman tried, the actions of her husband and mother-in-law.
What an encouraging book, revealing the unchanging love and grace of God for the broken. Catherine did extensive research so that her biblical stories have been carefully re-imagined according to the religion and culture of the day. The results are stories that come alive with great impact.
And the stories she tells of contemporary people have been written with respect and care. Each one is very inspiring.
Do you wonder if God even knows you exist? Read this book and be reminded that God does know you. He loves you. He knows you by name.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications for the purpose of this review.
