mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Max Lucado is always 5 stars!September 25, 2013mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Max 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.
