God's greatest desire is to be your dwelling place. The home for your heart.
He doesn't want to be merely a weekend getaway. He has no interest in being a Sunday bungalow or even a summer cottage. He wants to be your mailing address, your point of reference, your home...always. He wants you to live in the Great House of God.
Using the Lord's Prayer as a floor plan, bestselling author Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you. Warm your heart by the fire in the living room. Nourish your spirit in the kitchen. Seek fellowship in the family room. Step into the hallway and find forgiveness.
It's the perfect home for you. After all, it was created with you in mind. There's only one home built just for your heart. No house more complete, no structure more solid.
The roof never leaks. The walls never crack. The foundation never trembles.
In God's house, you're home. So come into the house built just for you. Your father is waiting.
With more than 130 million products in print, Max Lucado is America's bestselling inspirational author. He serves the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy.
alisaUtahAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful visionary bookMarch 20, 2013alisaUtahAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I really, really enjoyed this book. Comparing our relationship with God to a house that He has was a very concrete visual for me. I have always enjoyed Max Lucado books because in many ways he reminds me of C.S. Lewis. I appreciated many of his examples of how our Father loves us no matter what in His living room. The kitchen is a place where we can ask God to provide for us "just for today". One of my favorite examples is how his daughter gave a pretzel to someone that had done something annoying to her dad, the author.
Overall, this book is one I would read over again. The concepts are clear and concise. I don't agree with every single analogy that Lucado uses; that being said, I do think he makes marvelous comparisons in what we use every day (our house) and how we can use those ideas to improve our relationship with God. There was a "pondering" guide in the back that I also found helpful to make me think about my own relationship and how it can improve. My favorite chapter was the one about the furnace and how God is there with us in the fires if we allow him to be.
In summary, beautiful book.
HeidiPACentral PAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent book!March 2, 2013HeidiPACentral PAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As has been my experience with each and every book by Max Lucado, I loved this book. I read it as part of my daily devotional - reading one chapter per day. As I pick the book up and glance through it now, I see a lot of yellow highlights. I kept a highlighter with me as I was reading to highlight thoughts that stood out to me as applicable - things I wanted to remember to read through again later.
This book is based on The Lord's Prayer - a portion of Scripture that most everyone has committed to memory at some point in their lives. Each portion of the prayer is assigned a certain "room" in the House of God. So, as you read, you are essentially taking a tour of this amazing house, and finding out how YOU fit into it.
Max's writing style is simplistic enough for anyone to understand, while being extremely profound at the same time! The Great House of God will take up residence on my bookshelf, beside all my other books by Max Lucado. It will be shared and re-read over the years, too!
