Max Lucado excels at descriptive writing and has a real talent for recreating Bible stories so they have a much more human appeal. In this book he begins gently with a cozy story of his grandmother sharing her stories and pictures with him as a child. He them makes the point that we all need to know where we come from and explains how we can't find out our story from just looking inside ourselves.
While Satan gets one chapter - mostly a warning to Christians, Jesus gets the rest of the book. Max Lucado writes with such love and respect you can't help loving Jesus even more.
While this book is mostly serious there were a few moments when Max got a giggle out of me. The stories he tells also made me long to be, as he says, "a conduit of extraordinary grace."
What a beautiful book. This is by far my favorite Max Lucado book and I've read quite a few. This book has a comforting message that will give Christians hope and a longing for their real home in heaven.
~The Rebecca Review
We all know what makes up a good story. Good versus evil. Danger around every turn. Tragedy and triumph. Scenes that leave us wiping our tears or perched on the edge of our seats. These traits merge together to form the perfect story -- that is, until we find ourselves as the main characters. But never fear, for the Author of our story knows exactly how everything will work out in the end. He has the story planned out, and it's not over until He writes, "The End".
I've never picked up a Max Lucado book that I didn't like, and this one was certainly no exception. From page one until the final chapter, I was enthralled by the web of hope and encouragement Lucado weaves. He equates our lives to a story and God as its author. Each page demonstrates God's love and grace in helping us to live out our stories even when we don't understand the twists and turns. Through the Scripture, and with his unrivaled wit, Lucado reminds us that God is in control. He is not writing out our story; it's already written. He knows the outcome and every trial we may face along the journey. He knows and understands each character, and He has placed each one in the proper setting. With every word, I was encouraged that not only does God know what I'm going through, but He also cares.Read more ›
When His Becomes Yours
By Max Lucado
When I open my heart to God He will rewrite the story of my life. Everyone wants to know where they came from and that is why God gave us His story - the Bible. The key message to the entire Bible is found in John 3:16 - God loved and He gave to the world, He loved and gave to us, His Son so that we could experience Him. He gave us a way out the sinful life if we choose to make His story ours.
Jesus was born into our everyday world so that we would be able to relate to Him. The Bible is His story but Satan wants to keep us from reading it. The devil is a divider and he divided humanity from God with the temptation in Eden. But God in His love planned a way to bridge this divide - His Son Jesus Christ.
When we face times of trial and testing by Satan we are being strengthened and purified for our life with God. Satan attacks our weaknesses so we must take them before God for strengthening. He has given us His Word - the Bible to strengthen and protect us in our battle against Satan.
Everyone longs for home, but our home is not earthly it is heavenly and our life is our journey home to our Father. But often times we try to change the route that God has given us to get there. We sin and try to make up for it by creating a "work system". The cross and forgiveness are the way, but instead we take the detour of work over God and His story of redemption. Jesus took our sins on Himself so we have no need to look for detours of works, we just need to believe and accept what God has given us - redemption, forgiveness, and His righteousness.
What the world views as our final chapter - death is but the introduction to our life when we've made God's story our story!Read more ›
