Max Lucado in his new book , “Glory Days book coverGlory Days” published by Thomas Nelson shows us Living Your Promised Land Life Now.

From the back cover:  The Wilderness

Maybe you know it. The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck.

Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same?

You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can’t remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer. You’re fighting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You’re out of Egypt, but Egypt’s not out of you.

Isn’t the Christian life supposed to be better than this?

Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.

But there’s good news. With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance.

This is God’s vision for your life. You, at full throttle. You, as you were intended. You, as victor over the Jerichos and giants. You, minus the stumbles, hurts, and hate.

You and your Promised Land life.

Everyone needs to read this book. Everyone needs to hear the message that Pastor Lucado delivers in “Glory Days”. Pastor Lucado focuses our attention on Joshua, right-hand man to Moses and then leader of the Israelites. In sixteen chapters he breaks down what Joshua did and shows us a new way to approach the Throne of God. I am fascinated at what Pastor Lucado was able to come out with. This is life changing stuff. Simplicity. “Glory Days” is a book that you might want to read a few times.  Once for the primary impact that it will have on your life then again for the truth that you missed the first time.  You will want to give this book to family and friends so that they can know how to talk to God as well.  They will always remember your gift and thank you for it.  I recommend this book highly!

Book Review: “Before Amen” By Max Lucado

Max Lucado in his new book , “Before Amen book coverBefore Amen” published by Thomas Nelson shows us The Power of a Simple Prayer.

From the back cover:  We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.

And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?

Join Max Lucado on a journey to the very heart of Biblical prayer and the power unleashed with six simple lines:

Father, You are good. I need help. They need help. Thank you. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.

Max Lucado writes the greatest books in the world and this book is his best yet! With “Before Amen” he is looking at “The Lord’s Prayer” in an entirely different light than what we are used to. In nine chapters he breaks down what Jesus said and shows us a new way to approach the Throne of God. I am fascinated at what Pastor Lucado was able to come out with. This is life changing stuff. Simplicity. God wants to hear from us and He really enjoys it when we call Him Father, or Daddy. Once we got that down then the rest of the verses are easy. “Before Amen” is a book that you might want to read a few times.  Once for the primary impact that it will have on your life then again for the truth that you missed the first time.  You will want to give this book to family and friends so that they can know how to talk to God as well.  They will always remember your gift and thank you for it.  I recommend this book highly!

Book Review: “Grace” By Max Lucado

Max Lucado in his new book , “Grace” published by Thomas Nelson shows us that grace is More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine.

From the back cover:   Grace.

We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.

But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no?

Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?

God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

Let’s make certain grace gets you.

Max Lucado writes the greatest books in the world and this book is his best yet! Grace is a power that only comes from God.  He says, “My Grace is sufficient for you.”  That one verse should give us a clue that grace changes us in our circumstances and changes our lives.  Max Lucado knows this to be true.  He has experienced it.  And in “Grace” he tells us about it.  Not only that he tells us about individuals from the Bible that had grace moments.  Grace is not only something we receive it is something that we give to others.  “Grace” is a book that you might want to read a few times.  Once for the primary impact that it will have on your life then again for the truth that you missed the first time.  You will want to give this book to family and friends so that they can know the life changing power of grace in their lives.  They will always remember your gift and thank you for it.  I recommend this book highly!
