  1. 5 Stars Out Of 5
    You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado

    In "You'll Get Through This," Max Lucado sounds a clarion call as he blows a trumpet of victory through the shattered ruins of Joseph's life and portrays his amazing transformation from Joseph, the Coat-Wearer and Dreamer of Dreams, who was thrown into the dungeons, and sent to prison, from where he survived and thrived, to ascend to the palace and become the second-most powerful man of his time.

    Like all Max Lucado's books, this one is a work of art that reveals profound truths to inspire us. Here is biblical truth at its best, as it digs deep into turbulent times, and captures the still small voice of God in all its glory and grace. Max skillfully weaves Joseph's story of faithful endurance, perseverance and steadfastness into our own, exhorting us to lean on God's promises, as He leads us through our trials into a bright new day.

    God leads us up the mountain of adversity and down into the valley of grace. No matter how bleak our own dreary circumstances are, God's love is greater still, as He flexes his glorious might to display His transcendent glory. Our trials teach us about the sweetness of Christ and the fragrance of His grace. God gently guides us through our troubles to find out our true calling in His divine plan and purpose for our lives.

    Max Lucado is a best-selling author and writer and preacher at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. His latest book is You'll Get Through This (hope and help for your turbulent times).

    Max uses the life of Joseph to talk about a problematic life. It was ironic I got this book when I did, because I just finished reading Joseph's story in Genesis. I ordered this book for a lady in my church whose daughter was just told she has cancer. it seems a lot of people in my congregation has cancer lately and the "title" of this book seemed liked something that many people could relate to.

    _And that's probably why Max wrote this book.

    We've all been there - we get bad news - we get fired - we lose someone we love - and when it happens it feels like the end of the world. We say things like, "this always happens to me" and we freeze up. In this book Max encourages his readers that "you'll get through this." And let's be real for a second - c'mon this is Max Lucado so right away you know it's a good book.

    Everything Max does is filled with wonderful stories and quotable content in user-friendly content. Not to mention that this is a subject matter that strikes home for everyone. "Does God really care what happens to me? Or is he busy with something else?" Max talks about how Joseph was thrown into the pit and in that hole, I am sure Joseph didn't feel like life was turning out how he wanted.

    At the end of Joseph's story, his brothers sheepishly approach him to beg for his forgiveness. And in Genesis 50:20 Joseph lays out the thesis of Max's book:

    "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives."

    Joseph's life was a mess - but God used that mess for good; and so whatever you are going through now - you'll get through this - maybe not today or tomorrow but one day and in the end, you'll see that what God had in mind, was freedom.

    Thank you to BookSneeze and Thomas Nelson for a review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
