God's Story Your Story by Max Lucado
Max Lucado's name and works are well-known, so when one picks up a new work of his, we kind of know what to expect. This book, God's Story Your Story (When His Becomes Yours) does not disappoint!
Each of the book's chapters begin with this phrase, followed by a different ending. The book begins with explaining about how our full story, life story, is larger than our own personal life--so much else is built in (our family history, our setting, etc). The book goes on to show that as children of God, our "story" is grander, fuller, and more purposeful than we realize on a daily basis. Our lives are carried by Him and focused on eternity.
The chapters of this book were a great encouragement for today's life in the world. There are so many things we don't understand, so many times we could and do lose hope. It's definitely encouraging to remember that our life is much more than what we are seeing right now.
The book ends with a discussion guide. I think this book would make a wonderful Bible study or Sunday School curriculum. I can certainly see how a group discussion would enhance its use.
I would recommend this book.
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
