Book Review: The Lucado Inspirational Reader


The Lucado Inspirational Reader: Hope and Encouragement for Your Everyday Life, by Max Lucado is an uplifting book, which is a compilation of various quotes and excerpts from Lucado's books.

According to the book's back cover, "For more than twenty-five years you've trusted Max Lucado to walk with you as you ponder these essential truths.  This collection of his very best illustrations, stories, and one-liners guides you through his signature themes and life most important matters."

The themes are divided into twenty-seven themes, and the chapters include the following: The Bible: A Mine to Be Quarried, The Church: God's Family, Comfort: God in the Hurts of Life, Compassion: Love for the Least, Creation: A world Wrapped in Splendor, The Cross, A Triumph of Tenderness, Encouragement: God Cares and Is in Control, Evangelism: Hope for Searching Hearts, Faith: A Crazy Hunch a High Hope, Family: Priceless Treasure, Forgiveness: Kind Received Mercy Given, God's Love: Never Failing Never Ending, Grace: A Gift Beyond All Expectations, Heaven: The Happiness That Lies Ahead, Hope: A Zany Dependence on God, Jesus: Steadfast Savior, Miracles: Mysteries of Majesty, Peace: A Tender Tranquility, Perseverance: Whatever You Do Don't Quit, Prayer: Your Voice Matters in Heaven, Purpose: Ignite the Fire Within, Relationship with God: A Personal Protector and Provider, Salvation: A Heart Cleansed by Christ, Second Chances: Count on God's Kindness, Spiritual Refreshment: Rivers of Living Water, Value to God: He's Crazy About You, and Worship: A Big View of God.

This book may easily be utilized in a group setting (such as Bible studies or family time), as well as in your current personal devotional time or it's a wonderful way to start setting aside time each day to spend focused on God.  The Lucado Inspirational Reader is an ideal book for age, from teenagers to older generations.


Note: I received this book from Book Sneeze, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
