Max Lucado in his new book, “God’s Story, Your Story” published by Zondervan teaches us when His story becomes yours. I have read that Max Lucado is called America’s Pastor and after reading this book it is even more true.
From the inside jacket: Carpools and car crashes, job switches and joint custody, moves and motionlessness. Is there a cohesive storyline to the chaos, confusion, and clutter of your daily life? According to well-loved author Max Lucado, the answer is a resounding yes! So what is the text of your life? With his unequaled warmth and honesty, Lucado plumbs the depths of your storyline and comes up smiling. ‘Your story indwells God’s,’ writes Lucado. ‘This is the great promise of the Bible and the hope of this book … Above and around us God directs a grander saga, written by his hand, orchestrated by his will, unveiled according to his calendar. And you are a part of it …’ Join Max for an unforgettable journey woven with New Testament stories and contemporary examples of God’s beautiful story-making skills. The beginning of the narrative is legendary, the middle unfolds with surprises still in store, and the ending of your final earthly chapter ushers in a reunion that almost defies description. It’s time to see what your life looks like when God’s story becomes your story.
Ever wonder where you come from? No, I mean the family tree. It was a big day for me when I went to Ellis Island and saw both my grandfather’s names on the memorial that showed they has passed through here on the way from Italy to New York. That kind of knowledge gives stability, gives us a place in history, gives us a future. That is the exact same thing that God wants us to have regarding Him and His story. Max Lucado shows us how the Bible and Jesus give us our place in Him the same way that memorial did for me. ”God’s Story, Your Story” gives us our roots in God, gives us our place in history and then provides us our future. Pretty neat, huh? This is a great read presenting us with the stories that most of us know very well however in a different manner than we are used to. I recommend this book highly and feel that everyone should read it. Thanks Max we need what you have provided us within the pages of this book.
