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.

I read every morning along with my bible before I start the rest of my day and I read again before I go to bed.

I have been using this since the first of January and I find it to be an excellent daily inspiration. I particularly like the request for comments from Max Lucado and lines to write your response. It is a more interactive daily reading than any I have ever used before. I recommend it highly.

This book is beautiful. It's a keepsake with a ribboned book mark and "aged" pages. Filled with scripture! The morning prayer for every day is based on Galatians 5:22 with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. It's a beautiful way to start the day with the Lord. Scripturally based and filled with wisdom, this is a must have. The evening devotions are as comforting and warm as a cup of tea before bed. I plan to buy it as gifts for all my friends and family though out the coming year.

I love this journal. The scripture verses are great and the comments really fit the sriptures and make you think. I bought this for a friend for Christmas, but loved it so much decided to keep it. Glad I did. I am sure I will be ordering more for gifts. Easy reading, enlightening, and draws you easy into journaling if you are resisting journaling. Get one and enjoy your journey with God.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By W. Matthews on January 7, 2013
Format: Imitation Leather
I have enjoyed reading several of Max Lucado's books and was very excited to read a daily devotional by Max as well. As the name suggests there is a brief morning and evening inspirational reading each day. The reading includes some scripture, an excerpt from one of Lucado's books, and a couple of questions to think about.

I must say, I was disappointed in this book. It seemed like this was more of a way to sell a book or books rather than actually get people into thinking about Scripture. There didn't seem to be any type of theme from day to day or even morning to night. Often times the excerpt from one of Lucado's book didn't really even match the Scripture for the day. I also found the thought provoking questions to be rather non thought provoking.

I don't think I would even recommend this book to people as a way to introduce them to a daily devotional or to Max Lucado. It does not do either of these justice.

I enjoy reading Max Lucado. I enjoy reading daily devotions. I enjoy reading and thinking about Scripture. I did not enjoy this book. There are better devotionals out there. Sorry Max.

I hope this helps you.

Wonderful book for short devotions, but I was hoping for something more to "chew" on each day.

This is by far the most inspiring daily devotional I have come across. The reading for the day always gives me something to think about and there is space on each page to make notes. I love using this each morning and night to stay focused on God's presence in my life. Highly recommended! Great gift for graduates or confirmands.

This is the third copy of this study book purchased. I always love to share with those who are new to devotional studies, no matter if in a group or alone. This is good for everyone and I'm over-joyed to have this one in my library.
