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 tostruggle 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.

- Amazing Read by Maureen on 8/10/2012
This 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!
