Item description for Called By A New Name: Becoming What God Has Promised by Gerrit Scott Dawson...

Dawson encourages readers to believe in Jesus as the Son of the eternal God, and to call upon Him. (Christian)

Publishers Description
When people came to believe in Jesus as the Son of the eternal God, as their Savior from sin and death, and as the Lord of their lives, they were baptized. They went under the waters, symbolically dying to the old life and rising to the new. Not surprisingly, some of them even took new names after baptism. The old life yielded to new life in Christ Jesus. In baptism, they were marked with the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They were taken into the LORD I AM and marked as His own forever. I invite you to take the name of the LORD your God into your heart and soul. To receive the new names from God that Isaiah has brought to us, we first must receive the name of Jesus as our Savior and Lord. We call upon Him. If you have never looked to Jesus in this way, I urge you to do so now. Call upon His name. Invite Jesus to name you as His own and to place all the saving power of His name within you. Praise Him for all He has done to redeem us. Bless him for His mighty work of salvation. This calling on the name of Jesus is a continuing dynamic of our life in Christ. As we do so, whether for the first time or as part of the daily prayer of decades, He will reply. Moment by moment, on into eternity, He responds to those who call upon Him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Called By A New Name: Becoming What God Has Promised?

What a journey!  Mar 2, 2004
I was looking for a good book to teach a small group and found this gem. This takes you on a journey through names God has called his people in the book of Isaiah and the meaning behind them in a unique way that brings the lesson home for all of us. Well worth the price.
Wonderful Book Beyond Expectations  Jun 9, 1999
A friend in Pennsylvania told me about this book and I figured that it would be OK because I trust the friend, but I really felt amazed by this book's approach to a book in the Bible that never seemed like much to me. Gerrit Dawson writes incredible stories about exile and restoration that made me feel as if I were there, as if I were the one in the middle of that exile, and somehow the history became real and became my history. Even better than that was the fact that becoming a part of the story helped me become more open to God, letting my life be a part of God's love.
Healing in the midst of alienation  May 17, 1999
To move from shame and isolation into love of self and of God and of others is healing. This is Dawson's concern in Called By A New Name. He considers the effect of alienation on contemporary society, something we need not look far to see, and connects that alienation with the terrible Babylonian Exile of the Hebrew people, a move that uprooted their society and their theological underpinnings--their very relationship with God. Dawson examines the work of the prophet Isaiah in speaking to these alienated exiles. The word concerns healing and restoration and hope. Dawson elevates these concerns in an ancient culture to connect with our very modern societal disease.

After the school shootings, Dawson's voice is one we need listen to.
