EXCERPTS FROM THE NAME:
From chapter 1, “What’s In a Name?”:
...There amidst a multitude of fellow human beings I saw him coming for me. His focused stare and purposeful gait were unmistakable as he moved swiftly toward me. I turned to run the opposite direction when I saw another one with the same countenance and stride. I turned to the right and there was another. Likewise to the left there was another. From the north, south, east and west the destroyers were coming for me. There was nowhere to run. There was no place to hide. Fear and desperation gripped my being when I remembered something I had been taught...
From chapter 3, “The Name for Salvation”:
...In all the vast universe, I am but an insignificant particle. Before the omniscient Creator, I am as a mindless microbe. When at the pinnacle of my own strength, I am as inert alongside the omnipotent One. Yet He considers me paramount. — Go figure. It is inexplicable, but it is true...

Everyone was whooping and hollering, but I was terrified. I could feel the chilling presence of evil with us in that speeding car, and my mind began to race as well. “What am I doing here?”...

Is there still hope for the person who has known and accepted the Lord in the past but somewhere along the way has strayed from that relationship? Can that relationship be restored?...
From chapter 7, “In Jesus’ Name We Pray”:Paul Anderson emptied the contents of the small plastic pouch into his hand. He had carried this pouch in his wallet for years. Now, as he stood on a mountain top with a brisk breeze blowing, tears inched down his cheeks as he held up his open hand and released the tiny bits of torn paper like confetti into the air. Torn paper representing torn dreams scattered and lost forever to the four winds. “Why God? I don’t understand why.” He spoke the words softly, not in anger. His voice was raspy and exuded all the emotion of an aching heart. Something had died inside of him. “In Jesus’ name I asked you to prevent this. I don’t understand. I don’t understand. I don’t...” His voice trailed off as he finally submitted to defeat...
...Why do awful things sometimes happen to good people? Why do earnest, sincere prayers sometimes go unanswered? Sometimes, even when we say the magic words “In Jesus’ name,” we don’t get what we want...
