Publisher's Description

Common people ...

Story after story marked by scandal, stumble, and intrigue. Who are these people? They're the people of the Bible.

And they're us. We find our stories in theirs. We find our hope where they found theirs. In the hands of an uncommon God.

In the midst of them all ... hovering over them all ... is the hero of it all: God. Maker. Shaper. Rescuer of sinking hearts. God. Passing out high callings, second chances, and moral compasses to all comers and takers.

In this gathering of inspiring stories from his numbers best-selling books, master storyteller Max Lucado revisits some of his favorite biblical characters -- all of whom were very human and imperfect, just like us.

If God can find a place for them ... He might just have a place for us too.

    Again, Max teaches me that I haven't learned everything I need to know! I am teaching this book to women between the ages of 70 and 100 !! and they are loving it too. Plus, I am reading a chapter at a time to a wonderful group of people in Assisted Living . We are reminded again how relevant the Word of God is and how He loves each of us in all our messes!. Deep enough to grow more, yet easy enough to comprehend on limited brain power! Always ready to learn more.

    The book was wonderfully insightful. Hence the positive ratings. However, I don't just look at the content of the book as the product. I also look at how user friendly it is for visually impaired people, since I am. I have not been able to figure out a way to make the print larger on my iPad so that the entire page is visible on the screen, no matter the size font. Hence, the satisfactory rating reviews. One cannot read a book very well/with ease if it is not accessible. Food for thought and hopefully for future considerations. Otherwise, I may not be ordering from CBD (electronically). Thank you for your time.

    I have read all of Max Lucado's adult books, and I have to say though this was well written as all his others book, funny and inspiring it was not my favorite. It seemed that he drew on bit's and pieces of this other works and I felt that I was re-reading some of those books.

    This is my review of the book: "Cast of Characters" by Max Lucado

    Max Lucado introduces us to various different characters of the bible in this great book. He weaves a story around each one, which makes you think, they are sitting right across from you and telling you their story themselves. And in each life he portrays, you can see the mighty hand of God leading and shaping this person.

    One of my favorite chapters is the one about the paralyzed man. Lucado describes Jesus walking through a crowd of suffering people near the pool of Bethesda. He could have been in the temple or in a more sanitary crowd. But he chose to be here because: "When they suffered, he suffered also" (Isaiah 63:9) And even though we might be healthy and not in need of physical healing as this man, who had been lying near the pool for so long, waiting for the waters to heal him, we need Jesus to heal our hearts. Max shows with the verses in Colossians 2:13 - 15 what exactly God did for us, when we accept Jesus as our savior.

    • God made you alive

    • God forgave

    • He canceled the debt

    • He took away that record

    • God stripped the spiritual rulers

    • He won that victory

    • He showed the world that they were powerless.

    We were trapped and God came to the rescue.

    After every chapter there are helpful questions for reflection and discussion.

    I used one chapter as a bible study with a group of ladies and we all enjoyed it.

    This book is filled with hopeful stories of real people. You can almost imagine they live today and Max Lucado had coffee with them yesterday.

    Max Lucado makes the characters come alive and asks questions that I never thought of asking.
