His Name is Jesus by Max Lucado is an amazing book, just as is Max Lucado himself. I first purchased this book for myself and have now purchased three for friends. I will probably send for more. Every home would benefit from this book.
The first thing about this book is the way it is bound and presented. The photos are breathtaking, homey and inviting. But the real beauty of the book goes far beyond its first class look. The text comes in brief poignant snippets, sometimes displayed in gorgeous calligraphy. Max Lucado's insights are powerfully human yet deeply divine, which is exactly what we know about Jesus but are seldom able to reconcile or express. My wife and I have purchased a number of these books to give as gifts to our doctors, pastors, friends and colleagues. This is one book that will never be tucked away out of sight on the shelf. We will open it often. Every page has its own unique reward!
If you have never read any of Max Lucado's books, you owe it to yourself to get one. This particular book brought tears to my eyes several times when reading it, and believe me, that doesn't happen alot. Max always brings out something you never saw or heard before in a passage of scripture, even though you have read it or heard it preached a 100 times in your life. He has a fresh way, a down to earth way, of presenting the gospel in real life expression. Get this book. If it doesn't move you, then you just can't be moved.
