Excellent devotional Aug 23, 2006
A definitive devotional that uplifts. It makes you realize how wonderful the God that you place all of your trust in cares for you. Each name is a characteristic of God--defining his abilities in your life.
Functional, but not outstanding Dec 30, 2005
He Shall be Called by Robert J. Morgan is a devotional whose theme is the study of 150 names of Jesus. Each devotion is 1ý pages long and can be read fairly quickly. The meaning of each name of Jesus is evaluated in light of Scripture, and uses an illustration. Each devotion closes with a stanza from a hymn that relates to the specific name of Jesus referenced.
This book is neither an academic nor a theological study. The names of Jesus merely provide a framework for the devotional readings. This is effective in that it provides a sense of intellectual accomplishment, more than is experienced with other devotionals, but there is rarely any distinction made between two names if they are very similar to each other. For example, there are two different devotions based upon Revelation 19:16, which calls Jesus the "King of Kings and Lord of Lords." One devotion is on Jesus as the King of Kings, and another is on Jesus being the Lord of Lords, but the illustration and application are interchangeable. There is no discussion on what makes King of Kings different from Lord of Lords, nor if there is any difference. This would most definitely be done in a more academic study.
The stanzas from the hymns that conclude each devotion were amazing. Oftentimes they spoke to me much stronger than the devotions themselves. This could be good, in that they added to the quality of each devotion as a whole; but, if these stanzas were meant to reaffirm points already made, the reaffirmation is clearly stronger.
This book is functional, but not outstanding. Its strengths would be the power of the hymns it cites and the vivid quality of many of its illustrations. Its weakness would be that it does not provide robust evaluations of the names of Jesus. If a person is looking for a detailed study on the names of Jesus, this is not the book for him. If a person is looking for a devotional work centered loosely on the identity of Christ, I would recommend He Shall Be Called. -- R. Ben Armstrong, Christian Book Previews.com
