Review: The Lucado Inspirational Reader: Hope and Encouragement for Your Everyday Life

By Max Lucado

This book is a collection of quotes, illustrations & stories from all of his books organized by topic. Some of the chapters include: The Bible, Comfort, Encouragement, Faith, Family, God's Love, Miracles, Peace, Second Chances, Spiritual Refreshment & Worship. It is a great book for encouragement and when you need a bit of a spiritual lift. I wouldn't however pick this book up if I were looking for a devotional book. It is a great read and has many things from all of his books over the past 25 years of his writing and teachings. As this being the first thing I have read by him I am really impressed with it and would definitely recommend this book to others in the future. Even though it is from various different works the book just flows well together. It is a book that doesn't have to be read from beginning to end but can be read according to where you need to be getting encouragement from at that point in time. Its a great time of year for such an uplifting book to be coming out! It will make a great Christmas gift for many :). I hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I did if you end up getting yourself a copy :) I will be encouraging my hubby to read it as well!

I received a free copy of this book through Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review, and was under no means obliged to write a positive review.
