Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

New York Times best-selling author Lucado uses the Old Testament’s Joseph to illustrate that, no matter what happens, we fare better facing challenges with God’s help. Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery, but he made the best of his circumstances by looking out for others, avoiding seduction, remaining honest, and staying true to his heart and intuition. After two decades, he progressed from prisoner to prince of Egypt. For those facing difficult times—job loss, illness, loss of a loved one, accident, divorce—maintaining integrity may seem out of reach, but Lucado offers countless examples of those who have done just that and reaped untold rewards. He insists that what kept these individuals rock solid was the understanding that God was with them. Lucado also touches upon several universals: understanding your specific calling and destiny, absorbing God’s grace, doing what’s morally right, the benefits of gratitude, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of making a life plan. With this book, and maybe the intercession of the divine, those facing tough times can make it through. --Susan DeGrane

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.

Format: Hardcover
"You'll Get Through This" by Max Lucado is a great read for anyone needing encouragement to persevere through the challenges they are currently experiencing. Using the Old Testament story of Joseph as a biblical basis, Lucado shares many important points, some of which are:

1. Be careful of short-term thinking - your struggles will not last forever, but you will. You still have your destiny.
2. You will never go where God is not and He is near whether you are happy or not.
3. God uses everything for His glory and our ultimate approval.
4. Don't make matters worse by doing something you'll later regret.
5. Instead of trying to please others, focus on doing what pleases God (I say "Amen" to that!).
6. See your troubles as something God uses to develop our character and maturity for His glory.
7. While you wait, God works on your behalf. Waiting is sustained effort focused on God through prayer and belief (Being in-between regular full-time jobs, I can especially relate to this as I work part-time and continue to look for a regular full-time job).
8. We can either choose to trust God or turn away from Him.
9. While proud people are seldom grateful, grateful people people see every day as a gift from God.
10. Trust God to take of you.

As with other Lucado titles, you will be encouraged and challenged to focus on God instead of yourself and your problems. At the risk of sounding trite or uncaring, our problems really do pale in comparison to our destiny with Jesus Christ in eternity (for those who know Him as Savior and Lord).

Highly recommended.

This book is a perfect example of why i love to read Lucado. he is without exception by favorite modern author.
What do we do when something awful happens to us? We think we will never recover. I know I do. We focus on why good people do bad things. We focus on pain. Well, in this the best of all his books so far, Lucado uses the story from the Old Testament about Joseph to remind us that God will use what the devil tryies to destroy to make something wonderful and powerful and fantastic - all we have to do is hold on and wait for God to do His miracle in our lives!!
What a powerful message of hope!
Joseph was betrayed by his brothers because his father loved him most. But Joseph was gifted by God to have an understanding that was unparralled and he was gifted by interpretations: God had Joseph a better man.
Dniel, has the same story. Daniel was taken from Judah to Babylon as a castle slave, but God gave Daniel an understanding; and Daniel was excelled above all others to third in power over all of babylon.
There is no limit to what God can do and if you dont get anything else from this book get this:

Max Lucado takes the reader through the story of Joseph and how throughout his struggles of being abandoned and sold as a slave, God had a plan for him. Max writes how God is working in our lives, although we may not see it. I recommend this book for those who have went through or going through struggles in their lives.

Format: Hardcover
In his well-known traditional style of writing, Max takes us on a journey to explore the life of Joseph. Joseph - the one whose life can be easily used as a prime example of highs and lows of life.

Favorite son, betrayed by his brothers, sold to slavery, best-liked worker, accused of rape, sent to prison, respected prisoner, forgotten dream-reader, second-only-to-pharaoh ruler of Egypt.

Up and down his life goes.

We easily relate to Joey's story. Our own lives are going up and down all the time and the question that each one of us probably asked ourselves and God: "Why is this happening to me? What is the reason for all this stuff going on in my life? Is this it? Is this the end?"

And God, in His infinite patience and love, shows us again and again that some things do happen... but if we only allow God to teach us and take us THROUGH this time of trials (unfortunately, there are rarely ways around it), He will take the best possible care about our souls.

Max Lucado's books are always inspiring to me. His writing style makes the truths simple to understand, yet his apparent love for thesaurus, the words he chooses are incredibly to the point and as a result, the word picture of God's message is shining through.

It is a good book to read if you are going through tough times at the moment as well as an inspiring gift to someone else who might be experiencing problems in life. At the same time, even if everything is great in your life right now, this book also shows how you can glean wisdom for your future from your past.
