Named By God - Kasey Van Norman

Tyndale House Publishers has provided you with a complimentary copy of this book. I am asked to give my honest opinion about the book.

Named By God - Kasey Van Norman

"Each one of us is born with a "God Code"  Kasey Van Norman self help book goes thru the different ways that God has made us all special and how no matter what has happened to us we can be forgiven for our sins and be in the right with God.  In realizing that even the best of the best in the Bible in some ways have struggled with the very same things that we do today and if God can forgive them then he very well can forgive us as well. We may not be perfect in others eyes but as long as we make an effort to be right in Gods then that is all the matters.

I honestly had a hard time reading this book. Im not sure if it is because I'm use to reading fiction and this was more of a self help/christian spiritual book, I knew going into it that it probably wouldn't be my cup of tea but I thought I would give it a try. I also didn't completely agree with the way that Kasey translated some of the passages in the Bible. The way she read the word and the way I read the word we somehow got a different meaning and message out of the passage. Now that's not saying her way of translating it is wrong and that I'm right. I think that is what is great about the word of God, it can be read in many different ways and as long as we get that Jesus died for our sins that is what God was trying to get across.

If someone is having a hard time understand why God is putting certain roadblocks in their life this may be a just the read they need to know that God knows what he is doing even if you are questioning his actions.
