Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure. But something holds him back - the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on The River when he was just five years old. It was something no child should ever see. Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River.
Based on “Your Great Name”, the powerful and popular song written by Michael Neale, this book explores what God is like, name by name. The lyrics from the song make each name of God come alive: Using each line of the song and the name it represents, Your Great Name illustrates to modern-day listeners how God has revealed Himself. Corresponding quotes and verses add harmony to the inspiring lyrics, and personal stories from Michael’s life give context to the meaning of God’s names.
Some stories take generations to unfold. Gabriel Clarke has the River in his blood: The River that he loved as a child. The River that took his father, John. The River he feared, fled...and has come back to now. Jacob Fielding owes the last twenty years of his life to John Clarke—the stranger who drowned saving him and his brother from their own boyish recklessness. Since that day Jacob's gratitude has extended to everyone around him...especially Gabriel, that brave man's son.
