It's Not About Me By Max Lucado

It's Not About Me - Rescue From the Life We Thought Would Make Us Happy  By Max  Lucado is among the most uplifting books that I have recently read.  In true Lucado fashion, Max writes in an animated, easy to understand style that communicates biblical truths to the reader.  His books bring bible stories and biblical truth to life in an inspirational way that speaks out to the reader.  "Catch God in a bad mood? Won't happen.  Fear exhausting his grace? A sardine will swallow the Atlantic first.  Think he's given up on you?" ..... Lucado's use of colorful language and his conversational tone, make it so that biblical truths are memorable and meaningful to the average modern reader.  You need not be a theologen, educated in an expensive seminary or college to understand Max Lucado's books.

This inspirational book will be certain to leave the reader with a lasting impression.  In  today's self centered society, without offense Max Lucado illustrates the importance of living life based on biblical principles.   After reading this book, and really meditating on the biblical truths communicated via Max Lucado, one can feel a renewed sense of embpowerment to live a selfless life style.  Max makes use of personal anecdotes as well as bible stories to illiustrate the importance of depending on  God rather than on the material things of this world.  If you are a theologen, looking for an apologetic defense on the purpose of depending on God then this book isn't for you.  But, if on the other hand you are simply looking for bible based motivation and a relief in a world that takes pride in materialism, selfish ambition and competition, then this book is perfect.  As a blogger for booksneeze, I receive books from Thomas Nelson publishers in exchange for writing an honest review.  The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. This was a very eye opening book for me. I've always known that life is not about me or anyone else - it's all about God. He is the one who created us. He created us to display HIS glory. He saved us for HIS glory. Our purpose in life is to bring other to HIS glory. We were all born selfish. This book is the best reminder that the world absolutely was not meant to revolve around us. Max Lucado has broken this book into two parts - God-pondering & God promoting. They both flow together. When we spend our days & night pondering on the greatness of God, we are more than happy to promote the greatness of God.
