My husband spoke at a Baccalaureate Service and based his talk on this book. We told the students that wanted a copy of the book to let us know and we would get it for them. That's how good we think this book is. 5 stars
What a great book. I really enjoyed his thought provoking meditation on John 3:16 - phrase by phrase. The chapter on "In the beginning" brought tears to my eyes and praise to my lips. It was incredible. I also enjoyed the concept of the gospels being a "scrapbook" of Jesus life. I could just picture a scrapbook of pictures of Jesus at the wedding, fishing with his friends, talking to the crowds... Max has done it again!
This is a very deep, but lightly written book in the style known to those who enjoy Max Lucado. It is pertinent to all levels from the new Christian, to the more experienced pilgrim. There is something for everyone, and I especially enjoyed the 40 day Devotion. Max has written this book out of a heart filled with love, especially for those whose hearts may need a little heavenly encouragement, as we all do at times. We are walking in a most "unsure" world now, but the stability of John 3:16 has never wavered. God is still there for us, but we must reach out to Him. This book gives us an idea for Whom we are reaching, and how to get there. Thank you Holy Spirit and Max Lucado.
