This book is amazing. I can't tell you how many times Max's encouraging words helped get me through some difficult days of radiation treatment for for throat and neck cancer. I often felt as if God Himself was speaking through Max to give me the words I needed from Him that day. I can't say enough about it other than get it and read it faithfully. It will bless you!
Max Lucado is one of my favorites. His examples and analogies are excellent and provide great examples for teaching the simple, yet complex concepts and contradictions of our faith. The introduction alone is worth the price of the bookGJ
I bought this devotion as a secondary one for my husband who is training for his second deployment to Iraq. This book puts lessons in a nutshell. It gives a Scripture and a brief way to explain it further or to bring it home with a story without taking away from the Scripture itself. It compliments the Scriptures. It is perfect for the days in the field or when he's worked until midnight and has to get up and be ready at five in the morning. When he is able to call, we usually do this devotion together. It is an awesome way to spark a spiritual conversation and help us to continue to grow together while we're so far apart. And it is really a beautiful book on the outside and the inside. The pictures on the background of the pages are beautifully done and quite tranquil. That doesn't matter nearly as much as what is contained in the words, but for those considering this as a gift, it is truly beautiful!
