[BOOK REVIEW: You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado]

In his well-known traditional style of writing, Max takes us on a journey to explore the life of Joseph. Joseph – the one whose life can be easily used as a prime example of highs and lows of life.

Favorite son, betrayed by his brothers, sold to slavery, best-liked worker, accused of rape, sent to prison, respected prisoner, forgotten dream-reader, second-only-to-pharaoh ruler of Egypt. _240_360_Book.940.cover.jpg

Up and down his life goes.

We easily relate to Joey’s story. Our own lives are going up and down all the time and the question that each one of us probably asked ourselves and God: “Why is this happening to me? What is the reason for all this stuff going on in my life? Is this it? Is this the end?”

And God, in His infinite patience and love, shows us again and again that some things do happen… but if we only allow God to teach us and take us THROUGH this time of trials (unfortunately, there are rarely ways around it), He will take the best possible care about our souls.

Max Lucado’s books are always inspiring to me. His writing style makes the truths simple to understand, yet his apparent love for thesaurus, the words he chooses are incredibly to the point and as a result, the word picture of God’s message is shining through.

It is a good book to read if you are going through tough times at the moment as well as an inspiring gift to someone else who might be experiencing problems in life. At the same time, even if everything is great in your life right now, this book also shows how you can glean wisdom for your future from your past.

    Zee, love anything by Mac…I have all His book stacked on top of my fireplace mantle ready to be given out to those who need a helping hand. He way of writing makes understanding easier. I may have to look into this blog you mention. Hope all is well with you. Betty

    • I have a collection of Max’ books as well. One of my personal favorites is He Chose the Nails because of a personal story behind the cross on the cover. It was made by my pastor and left at Max Lucado’s office. The nails were taken from the attic at my Church when we were rebuilding it.

      The blog I mentioned?
