5.0 out of 5 stars Grace Someone You Care About With This Little Gem September 3, 2001
Grace for the Moment is an excellent companion piece to Max's, A Gift for All the People. It gives you a daily devotional about God's unending grace and some real thoughtful items to carry you through. I find this book particularly helpful when I'm feeling doubtful and troubled. The wisdom Max delivers here will make you feel better about yourself, no matter what your current situation is. This book is also a terrific companion piece to Max's, A Gift for All the People. Either book is a terrific introduction to Max Lucado's warm, caring, writing style. Other Christian writers either challenge your faith intellectually, challenge your long standing beliefs, or want to thump you with their Biblical wisdom. Max Lucado makes you FEEL your faith and the love of GOD with your Heart. Thanks again Max for another thoughful little gem. Thanks to my wife for buying this lasting gift also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Call On His Name Dot Com October 17, 2000
Max has done it again. I received "Grace For The Moment" for a birthday present and have been reading it as a small segment of my daily devotions. It has a way of creeping up on you and ministering to hurts you didn't even realize were affecting your walk and your life. Max has immense wisdom and insight into the human condition. He touches you with God's truth and warms you to the Love of God. This is an excellent addendum to your daily devotions. Each day's passage takes less than a minute to read, but stays with you throughout the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Grace! April 13, 2000
I have found this book to be extremely thought provoking. It only takes a few moments to read the days devotional but it usually takes most of the day to digest. It gives you life changing food for thought for the entire day!

5.0 out of 5 stars a daily reminder of God's love December 10, 2003
This inspirational and instructive book of daily meditations is a wonderful way to start one's quiet time with the Lord every day; if like me, you have this time the first thing in the morning, it's the perfect book to wake up the brain and get it on the right track.
There is a page for each day, with a short Bible verse, followed by an excerpt from one of Lucado's books that speaks on the same subject. Though these excerpts are not lengthy, they are simply and exquisitely written, and quite profound. Sometimes Lucado takes examples from his life, and sometimes from people of accomplishment like Leo Tolstoy, but mostly it is just good teaching, on getting a closer walk with Him, day by day.
The design of the book is lovely, small but with 398 pages rather weighty; it has a preface and 3 marvelous pages on reasons for choosing "love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control". Each month starts with a sepia toned photograph of trees or leaves, which is subtly reproduced on the following pages of the month. The font size is not large, but very clear and easy to read. It is an aesthetically pleasing layout and this devotional makes a perfect gift for Christmas, to keep on one's desk or prayer corner, and to be cherished for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! March 31, 2000
Max Lucado's folksy, easy-to-read style hits home in "Grace for the Moment". I found his daily writings to be profound and encouraging. His unique ability to relate scripture verses to my everyday struggles and challenges has provided me rich opportunities to reflect on my life and my relationship with the Lord. I recommend this devotional highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lucado Inspires November 14, 2000
Lucado is a master with interpreting the Bible for Christians today. His words are sincere and non-judgmental. Yet, he goes right to the heart of how we need to live our lives in this world. The daily devotionals are brief, humorous, insightful and unique. A great start or end to anyone's day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book by Lucado, as Usual! October 16, 2000
I met a friend, Gabriela, in Ecuador on a mission trip this summer and now we are special friends who pray for and encourage each other daily. I purchased two of the books -- one for me and one for her. It is so great to e-mail her daily and know that we are both reading the same words each day. Many times we share with each other about the message which Max Lucado has spoken through God's Word. My daughter, Laurie 17, and I also have begun to read this devotional book together during breakfast. For many years, I have written a scripture on a card and put it in Laurie's lunch. It is now very easy to write the scripture from Lucado's book for her to be reminded of during lunchtime. Lucado is my most favorite Christian author. You will enjoy this devotional book.

5.0 out of 5 stars reinforcement of God's love January 25, 2004
This is truly a wonderful book. For each day of the year there is an inspirational guidance and validation of God's love for us. This is what is so important to all of us and what will save us all--Love...for the Bible says God is Love and through Jesus he gave us all that opportunity to receive it. When I read his passage for the day it always brightens my day and my faith in his love for us. It is a refreshing book to read. Thank you Max. Enjoy!

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.
