Knowing this book was a devotional and having loved the books that Lucado has written I decided to grab this book off of booksneeze. It is a small devotion that is packed full of devotions from the recent books he has written.
The devotions seem to hit the spot every day. They speak right into my heart. This would be an amazing gift for anyone.
Lucado has done it again! Great job!!

Love is what it is all about and in this inspiring devotional, Max Lucado explores different kinds of love. This book is divided into the following sections:
Loved with a Steadfast Love
Loved with a Perfect Love
Loved with a Wise Love
Loved with a Merciful Love
Loved to Love Others
Within each of the five sections listed above, Max Lucado explores each type of love in several devotionals. Each devotional begins with a scripture verse then provides a devotion from one of his previous books. He then provides a prayer as well as additional verses of scripture.
I have always been a huge fan of the writings of Max Lucado and highly recommend this devotional as a gift or for yourself.
Holding this small, but thick devotional in my hands, I immediately noticed the high quality cover and binding. The durable, glossy pages found within are just as lovely. These details to quality help create a beautiful devotional to give or receive.
More importantly, the content does not disappoint either. The devotions of Live Loved are divided into five sections, including "Loved with a Steadfast Love," "Loved with a Merciful Love," and "Loved to Love Others." Each individual devotion spans two facing pages and is comprised of a Bible verse, a short text, a prayer, and two to three more related Bible verses. After the initial Bible verse, a short passage emphasizes an aspect or relates a theme to everyday life. The texts are excerpts from six of Lucado's previous books, such as Facing Your Giants, Fearless, and Outlive Your Life . These messages are hopeful and encouraging to read. Several lined pages for personal notes complete the devotional.
Overall, this is a lovely devotional with a timely and encouraging message.
Thank you to Thomas Nelson, Inc. for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes through the BookSneeze.com book review program.
