Editorial Reviews

About the Author

More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.

More About the Author

In just under two decades of writing, Max Lucado has accomplished more than most writers hope for in a lifetime. Most of his books have appeared on one or more best seller lists, including those published by the "New York Times," "USA Today," "Publishers Weekly," and the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA). Aside from hardcover books, Lucado's writings have also been published as children's books, videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs, music CDs, mass paperback booklets, apparel, giftware, bookmarks, calendars, study Bibles, workbooks, curricula, and plush products. In spring 2003, Hallmark/Dayspring Cards launched a new gift card line featuring excerpts from Lucado's writings--and has already sold more than one million cards.

All this success has drawn more than a little attention to a previously low-profile Texas author and minister. Lucado has been featured in a wide range of media, including "USA Today," "Larry King Live," and "NBC Nightly News." He has spoken at the National Prayer Breakfast before the President of the United States. He has traveled with internationally renowned musicians as a special speaker on their music tours, such as the highly successful "Come Together & Worship Tour" (sponsored by Chevrolet) with Grammy Award-winning artists Michael W. Smith and Third Day.

Journey to the Top
Lucado was born in 1955 in San Angelo, Texas, and raised in Andrews, Texas, the youngest of four children. His father was an Exxon oil field mechanic who, Lucado remembers, always smelled of grease cleaner. "It makes it easy for me to see a God who is loving and kind--because my dad was," he says. His mother was a nurse who grew up working in the cotton fields.

Lucado went through a period of rebellion against his parents' values and their God during his teens and into college. But it wasn't long before he found himself drawn back to his roots, back to God. He married, spent time serving as a missionary in Brazil, and returned to the States, where he began working as a church minister and writing on the side.

Secret to Success
From all accounts, Max Lucado is not a man consumed by sales, awards, and achievements. He often turns down media interviews since they impede on family and ministry commitments. He spends the bulk of his week serving as senior minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. And he is truly surprised by his own success--more impressed by his one-in-a-million wife and three amazing daughters than by his successful writing career.

Customer Reviews

This book really made me feel better about myself and the situation I am in.

It is a beautiful story of how God's grace allows us to "take out the trash" by giving the burden to Jesus.
Larry Hehn
As always, this book by Max Lucado offered easy to understand inspiration and wisdom.

Have you allowed some trash to accumulate in your life? Are you carrying the weight of past or present hurts, anxiety, anger, lust, guilt, greed? We allow small fragments of mental trash to clutter our lives until we are carrying around sacks of it. We can't quite explain how it all got there, and aren't quite sure how to get rid of it.
Based on one of the stories from Next Door Savior, here Lucado expands the story by dividing it into several scenes and weaving powerful lessons into each section. It is a beautiful story of how God's grace allows us to "take out the trash" by giving the burden to Jesus.
What makes this story truly effective is that it does much more than advise the reader to "give it to God" and leave it at that. It clearly illustrates the extent of Jesus' sacrifice for us. We aren't called to simply acknowledge our trash, then continue to drag it along with us. We are called to give our burden to Jesus, and to accept God's offer of a new beginning. If you are ready to take out the trash in your life, start by reading this little treasure.

Format: Paperback
"Worry divides the mind," Lucado tells us on page 15. In fact the two words in the Bible for worry are "merizo" to divide and "nous" the mind. Combined, they become "merimnao" which means worry he tells us. Resentment is another negative emotion that he compares to cocaine because if its addictive nature. He points out that resentful people are in the habit of sharing their misery with everyone.
His "Good Riddance" chapter explains the solution to toxic emotions, i.e., that Jesus Christ had those unhealthy elements annulled when His hands were nailed to the Cross. This chapter is so clear in making a case for how to receive God's abundant life promise. This book is a large does of encouragement in a small package.

While small, it's perfect. I had no idea it would be the description of my life. The garbage I've been carrying around and didn't even realize. This was put in such an easy to understand and perfect way. I'm buying more to give as gifts, not because friends are in bad places, but just because anyone can use this no matter where they are!

Give it all to Him is a small, easy and VERY POWERFUL book! I highly recommend this book to any Christian struggling with an obstacle or burden in their life. Max Lucado's use of imagery just makes the picture jump off the page. You begin to see yourself in the story he is sharing. For those who are not saved, this book shares Gods amazing grace and mercy. It explains the price Jesus paid and the everlasing life and eternal love we have with him. I just cant think of another word other then WOW! It is an amazing and simple read. I will hang on to this book and re-read it time and time again. One of the best I have read in quite a while. VERY good.

Give It All to HimMax Lucado is the "Nora Roberts" of the religious genre. Makes a great gift. Find a comfortable chair, kick back and enjoy a good read that will help you understand better God and how you relate to HIM. Just cannot go wrong when you read anything by Max Lucado. Rate this as a "10".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the story of salvation but presented in a different way. People like me have heard the story so many times that I have become desensitized to it. It does not connect with my heart. This nailed my heart and blew me away with God's love and the cost of his sacrifice.

Daily I stagger under the load of garbage I am dragging behind me. Years of it have crippled me and sucked all the joy out of life. Every day is a blur of never ending pain and despair. Till one day a trash man appears who says I was not designed to carry this load and he promises to take it away forever if I am willing to hand it over and let him have it.

Very effective delivery of an age old message. Sweet story.
