Product Description

Do you long for meaning-to know that your life has purpose beyond what is seen in the day to day? On the surface, life can seem like a disconnected string of events. One day you're celebrating the birth of a child, the next you're mourning the passing of a beloved grandparent. At times, we soar with victory and at others, we languish defeat. Is there a through-line to the ups and downs of life? Max Lucado uses the structure of the New Testament as a guide in God's Story, Your Story, and weaves together Biblical and personal stories. In order to understand our own personal place in the cosmos, Lucado offers us a change of perspective-the opportunity to see beyond the microcosms of our own lives, into our place among the greater whole of God's work.

Publisher's Description

Carpools and car crashes, job switches and joint custody, moves and motionlessness. Is there a cohesive storyline to the chaos, confusion, and clutter of your daily life? According to well-loved author Max Lucado, the answer is a resounding yes! So what is the text of your life? With his unequaled warmth and honesty, Lucado plumbs the depths of your storyline and comes up smiling. 'Your story indwells God's,' writes Lucado. 'This is the great promise of the Bible and the hope of this book ... Above and around us God directs a grander saga, written by his hand, orchestrated by his will, unveiled according to his calendar. And you are a part of it ...' Join Max for an unforgettable journey woven with New Testament stories and contemporary examples of God's beautiful story-making skills. The beginning of the narrative is legendary, the middle unfolds with surprises still in store, and the ending of your final earthly chapter ushers in a reunion that almost defies description. It's time to see what your life looks like when God's story becomes your story.

Publisher's Weekly

You’ve got to love Lucado’s homeboy way of spinning a yarn. Pastor and author of more than 60 books, he uses his signature style in his latest release. The theme is the ordinary. God writes his story by stepping into yours and vice versa. The grand story of human fall and redemption is filled with characters from the Bible and also from real life. We’ve got Joseph and Mary presented as Norm and Norma (because they’re so “normal”) and neighbors such as Holden, Carl, and Aunt Wanda. Lucado is the master of disarming vernacular: Jesus “slam dunks” the devil, and the devil responds by tempting Jesus to “show off in church.” The book could have been a hopeful presentation because Lucado’s narrative voice is so doggone likable. Unfortunately, it is formulaic to a fault: heavy with Bible verses; bloated with anecdotes; and stuffed with redundant rhetorical questions. Lucado himself captures the feeling this book will leave some readers with in his description of what “ticks off” the devil: “reading a Christian book, thinking godly thoughts, dreaming about heaven and other such blah-blah-blah.” Others, doggone it, are just gonna like it.

    Max Lucado is a great author who uses the most beautiful language. His use of adjectives is wonderful and allowed me to get lost in his book. He uses great examples and stories, which he weaves into his narrative to add another dimension to the experience. I loved it and have already told everyone I know to read it. In fact, we are going to use it as our cell group study.

    I can always count on Max Lucado to put out a book that God will use to touch and convict me at the same time. In his traditional style Mr. Lucado uses storys both biblical and contemporary to bring his points home. I always look forword to the next book.

    It is easy to read and understand and the points made will touch your heart. I have already loaned it to a friend to read and will read it again when it is returned.
