The Lucado Inspirational Reader

Max Lucado has been preaching and writing for over twenty-five years.  He uses his knowledge of Scripture, personal experiences, and stories to illustrate many biblical concepts.  This inspirational reader takes excerpts and quotes from 25 of his books and arranges them by topic for easy reference.  Some of the topics include the Bible, Comfort, Faith, Heaven, Purpose, Relationship with God, and Worship.  There are also a source index and more specific topical index at the back of the book to help the reader locate specific sections.

I have always liked the style that Max Lucado uses to write.  It is easy to understand and leaves me with many thoughts to ponder.  Since I have not come near to reading all his books, it's nice to have a resource like this that compiles many of his main messages into one source.  This isn't the type of book that I would sit down and read cover to cover.  Since the sections are short, it would be great for little bits of reading at a time, possibly to keep in the bathroom :)  It would also be helpful for someone who is studying a particular topic either for personal growth or for preparing a lesson/sermon. 

Here is one of my favorite quotes: "He knew the price of those sins was death.  He knew the source of those sins was you, and since he couldn't bear the thought of eternity without you, He chose the nails." - Max Lucado

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review.

This book is the first book that I've read from Max Lucado and this is my favorite. I also read 'Just Like Jesus' and one of his promise books. This book gives you full knowledge, wisdom, and understanding about what Jesus Christ did for us. Max Lucado touches areas that you normally don't hear about when people teach on the crucifiction. I thank God for the teachings in this book. It contains a lot of information.
