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 is the first of Lucado's studies that we have used. This book rocks. I am most impressed by the diversity of disciplines utilized as Lucado helps us look at the Psalms. As believers, the format of the book encourages us to read, pray, journal, contemplate and listen for God's voice on a weekly basis. The topics covered are easily accessible to Christian and PreChristian alike. Our small group has been greatly helped by this understandable, yet weighty study.

As a pastor, I am very interested in theology but sometimes I have trouble applying it to the daily lives of my parishoners. I bought this book hoping it would help bridge that gap.
When the book arrived, I was disappointed because it contained very little background information. Lucado does not help the reader understand what each Psalm meant in its original context.
Instead, he encourages the reader to look inward and focus on his/her own experience with the text. Much of the book consists of pages that look like notebook paper where the reader can fill in his/her thoughts.
Despite my reservations, I decided to try it out with my Wednesday morning Bible study. Several members commented they "didn't get anything out of it" so I started writing my own my Bible study using Craigie's commentary on the Psalms (published by WORD.)
By the way, Craigie's commentary is excellent.

I am a Sunday School teacher for young adults at a Cumberland Presbyterian Church. I have read Max Lucado's books for over 20 years and used his Life Lesson series to teach my class. This is probably the fourth or fifth of them that I have used and it is just as good as all the others. Very good analysis of the scripture, but in layman's terms. Then good probing discussion questions and a challenge for the week. I would recommend it for personal or group study for all adult ages.

I recently ordered this book for a Bible Study group at my church. They have been using this series and could not get it here in town. The lessons are current and easy to understand and perfect for any size group.
They are very pleased about this book.

I was very disappointed: the lack of depth of this study, the minimal outlines,
and reliance on the readers' journaling rather than any reflection by the author.
This is not what I hoped to use with an adult class at church.

I had read Psalms much of my life but had never really dug into the circumstances of the writer or why they were saying what they were saying. In essence it gave much more meaning to the Psalms.

The descriptions of books is not always clear. I love reading the Psalms and that is all I wanted. I prefer the NIV and NKJV of the Bible but this uses the New Century Bible. I was not aware that it was a Bible study. Max Lucado is an excellent teacher and I have enjoyed many of his works. I am disappointed in what I received as I only wanted a book of Psalms for reading.
