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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

This book is fine and handy!

Our Sunday school class is studying John and it makes a good reference material to be able to study and know what the Bible is saying.

Max Lucado truly brings light to whom Jesus 'really' is!

I purchased this for use in my bible study group. We love it. The chapters are short and to the point and give you a lot to think about and aprovide for a lot of really good discussion. I highly recommend this book, as well as any books in this series.

I bought this because I liked the introduction, which was very evocative, in typical Lucado style. You should be aware, however, that if you are looking for a study of the WHOLE book of John, this is not that book! For example, it completely skips John chapter 3; you know, the one with the strangely familiar verse seen at sports events everywhere.

We'll probably use it mostly for the vignettes; In fact, I read the introduction aloud at our first meeting. But we'll use something else to walk us through the book.

This series of lessons from Max Lucado is great. I have enjoyed going through the Book of John using Life Lessons and feel that I understand more about that particular book than did when reading it by itself. Thank You Max!

Thought I was getting a commentary of John by Lucado. It is a study book, some commentary by Lucado. The problem of not knowing just what to order.

It's tough to select just a dozen stories from John's gospel and develop a Bible study on it. But Max does a really good job of opening up our eyes to see Jesus clearly for who he is. The content is pretty light, but it get's the conversations started and you can certainly build from there.

Going over this book in our adult Sunday school class. So far through the first few chapters, I really like it. Max makes me think of things I wouldn't have thought of. Also, does a great job in the beginning of explaining Jesus as 100% human, and what that means for us. So far, very good book!

Our study group used the life lessons books Ephesians, Galations and Romans. They were wonderful tools for our discussions. I am looking forward to starting John.
