My dad gave me this book while I was in college, but I didn't read it, right off the bat. Once graduation was upon me and I started to worry about my future, where I would live, and wonder if I would find a job, I (not by coincidence, I'm sure) stumbled across the book and decided to read it. As an upcoming college graduate, it was an absolutely perfect read. My fears, doubts, worries, and stresses were all addressed in this book. I even remember reading a sentence in the book that mentioned the worries and anxieties following college graduation! I felt that it was written just for me.
Since college, I have read and re-read this book numerous times. I've referenced it when I changed jobs, endured a devastating break up, lost friends, and time periods when I started to lose faith that everything would be OK in the end.
I recommend this book for high school graduates, college graduates, anyone transferring jobs, moving cities, getting married, or for someone that needs a reminder to live life fearlessly and to let go of control, give it over to God, and live each day to its fullest. It's a book that someone will constantly return to throughout his/her lifetime.
One more thing: I really like the layout of the book. I didn't necessarily have to read the book from chapter 1 to understand what Max Lucado is referencing in Chapter 6. I can skip around, read the chapters that apply to my situation, and still get as much enjoyment and fulfillment as if I would have read the entire book from cover to cover.
If you're contemplating on whether or not to buy this book, don't hesitate. You'll enjoy it and experience peace while and after reading it! God bless.
