Book Review: Drawing Strength from the Names of God by Catherine Martin

God has always spoken to me when I needed it; so it was no surprise last night, after a terrible week, that I felt drawn to pick up my copy of Drawing Strength from the Names of God by Catherine Martin. This gift book, a companion to Martin's, Trusting in the Names of God: Drawing Strength from Knowing Who He Is, touched my heart just when I was longing for its words.

  • El Sahddai - He is Enough for You
  • Yahweh Jireh - He is Your Provider
  • El Ro'i - He Sees You
  • Yahweh - He is Everything You Need
  • Yahweh Shalom - He is Your Peace
  • Abba, Father - He is Your Father
Are some of the names from which I drew strength last night.
Included with the stunning photography are Bible verses, examples from Scripture, and prayers. Each section begins with the words, Draw Strength from (name), followed by Draw Near to (name), and lastly, Delight in (name). This allows the reader to understand the meaning of each name and how we can draw strength during any season of our lives from God.
A truly touching and beautiful book, Drawing Strength from the Names of God, will inspire you in your walk with the Lord. It is also a meaningful, yet, non-confrontational way to draw others to Christ.
I'll be buying a few copies of this book for Christmas gifts this year. Displayed on a coffee table or the top of a bookshelf, many hands will be picking up Drawing Strength from the Names of God by Catherine Martin, and learning how easy it is to draw strength from the names of God!
