Water for the thirsty, rest for the weary, and a friend for the lonely.
Three books in one, bringing you closer to the Savior.
In Come Thirsty, Max Lucado encourages you to visit the well and drink deeply, to receive Christ's work on the cross, the energy of his Spirit, and his lordship over your life, and his unending, unfailing love.
Using the illustration of weary travelers in Traveling Light, Lucado invites us to release the burdens of our excess baggage that we were never intended to bear--with the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide.
In Next Door Savior, master storyteller Max Lucado presents the life of Jesus Christ in stunning contrast, revealing the irresistible human qualities and the undeniably divine characteristics of Jesus. Lucado describes, as only he can, a Savior who is as approachable as a next-door neighbor, yet mighty enough to save humanity.
More than 120 million readers have been inspired by the words of Max Lucado. He lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy, in San Antonio, Texas, where he serves the people of Oak Hills Church.read more
Reviews for Come Thirsty - Traveling Light - Next Door Savior by Max ...
No rating provided
NEXT DOOR SAVIOURThis is a book that was assigned by my monthly Christian book group. It is more for short daily readings than a book to be read in one sitting. So I just read it each day along with my morning Bible reading. At first impression I have not been particularly enthusiastic about Max Lucado's writing. He has quite an imaginative way of illustrating his points which I found a little distracting - paying more attention to clever use of words than the truth he is getting at. But as I went along, I found that I was even brought to tears by the contrast of the profound truths about Jesus and His relationship with us."The Christ of the galaxies is the Christ of your Mondays" "The universe's Commander-in Chief knows your name." I especially liked his illustration of the first time he took his dog through a carwash - major panic, no understanding of what was happening. As time went on the dog never really understood what those huge machines and pounding water were about, but he learned to trust his master. The truth: "God's greatest blessings often come costumed as disasters. Any doubters need to do nothing more than ascend the hill of Calvary." This book was packaged in a 3 in 1 hardback with "Come Thirsty" and "Traveling Light." I will read the other two now as I have found this to be better than I expected.Vox this Post a comment Favorite this Share Flag as offensive Your rating: ★ Tags:max lucado Add tags This also appears in:LOVING THE WORD Previous Postsread more
