You Are Never Alone is both relevant to the time in which we live as well as insightful. Max Lucado highlights the miracles of Jesus from the book of John while reminding us that, "John recorded them, not to impress us, but to urge us to believe in the tender presence and mighty power of Christ ... God can carry you!" He challenges each of us to, "...offer a simple prayer and entrust the problem to Christ." If you are feeling drained by your current circumstances, you will be encouraged by the meaningful messages shared throughout You Are Never Alone! It certainly is a refreshing read for such a time as this!
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Very encouraging bookSeptember 14, 2020bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Lucado is a master communicator. Even though he has written scores of books, this is another excellent one. He gives us lessons on many of Jesus' miracles, retelling the events. He adds other stories too with some from his own life. There is an extensive section of questions for reflection so this would make a good book for personal journaling or group discussion.
Here are a couple of insights from the book that made a big impression on me. When the royal official came to Jesus to request his son be healed, he traveled from Capernaum to Cana. (John 4:46-54) That was 18 miles. When Jesus told him the son was well, he still had to go back to see it. Granted, he was met part way with good news but he still had to travel hours believing before seeing. What a lesson for someone between Cana and Capernaum, waiting to see the answer God promised.
Another insightful lesson comes from the man beside the pool, waiting 38 years for healing. Could he have done something in all those years to move him closer to the healing pool or was he satisfied in his condition? Lucado asks, "What can I do today that will take me in the direction of a better tomorrow?" (410/1631)
And one more insight. John recorded miracles not only to affirm Jesus' deity but to assure us of the presence of God and that God cares for us. "...[E]very one of Jesus' miracles was an act of kindness. Someone benefited." (96/1631)
This is a very encouraging book. It is full of encouraging stories and lessons. I highly recommend it.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
Tara5 Stars Out Of 5We are not alone on our daily journey- there is hope.September 14, 2020TaraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Max Lucado uses the miracles of Jesus to illustrate that we are never alone in our journey through life. The miracles of Jesus used in Max's book You are Never Alone are found in the Gospel of John - from the first miracle of turning water into wine at Cana to the restoration of Peter after Jesus's Resurrection God's Presence and Power are illustrated.
Max uses his easy to understand writing style and stories (personal and other inspirational stories) to demonstrate God's Presence in our lives during the good and bad times. He shows how God cares for us through these stories- for example in one story Max is taking a walk with his dog and granddaughter when he ends up rescuing his granddaughter from a thicket of bushes just as God is here to help us and give us hope in our daily lives. You are Never Alone is full of encouragement and hope. Max Lucado shows us how to relate and apply Scripture to daily events and current situations of our lives- illustrating how we can apply God's Promises to our lives and find Hope in our trials, darkness, and despair.
The book includes Questions for Reflection on each chapter allowing for deeper thought and connection with God and Scripture.
I recommend this book for everyone looking for hope, encouragement, and help in the struggles of daily life. I received an advanced copy of this book for my honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
