Grace for the Moment is an excellent companion piece to Max's, A Gift for All the People. It gives you a daily devotional about God's unending grace and some real thoughtful items to carry you through. I find this book particularly helpful when I'm feeling doubtful and troubled. The wisdom Max delivers here will make you feel better about yourself, no matter what your current situation is. This book is also a terrific companion piece to Max's, A Gift for All the People. Either book is a terrific introduction to Max Lucado's warm, caring, writing style. Other Christian writers either challenge your faith intellectually, challenge your long standing beliefs, or want to thump you with their Biblical wisdom. Max Lucado makes you FEEL your faith and the love of GOD with your Heart. Thanks again Max for another thoughful little gem. Thanks to my wife for buying this lasting gift also.
Max has done it again. I received "Grace For The Moment" for a birthday present and have been reading it as a small segment of my daily devotions. It has a way of creeping up on you and ministering to hurts you didn't even realize were affecting your walk and your life. Max has immense wisdom and insight into the human condition. He touches you with God's truth and warms you to the Love of God. This is an excellent addendum to your daily devotions. Each day's passage takes less than a minute to read, but stays with you throughout the day.
I have found this book to be extremely thought provoking. It only takes a few moments to read the days devotional but it usually takes most of the day to digest. It gives you life changing food for thought for the entire day!
This inspirational and instructive book of daily meditations is a wonderful way to start one's quiet time with the Lord every day; if like me, you have this time the first thing in the morning, it's the perfect book to wake up the brain and get it on the right track.There is a page for each day, with a short Bible verse, followed by an excerpt from one of Lucado's books that speaks on the same subject. Though these excerpts are not lengthy, they are simply and exquisitely written, and quite profound. Sometimes Lucado takes examples from his life, and sometimes from people of accomplishment like Leo Tolstoy, but mostly it is just good teaching, on getting a closer walk with Him, day by day.The design of the book is lovely, small but with 398 pages rather weighty; it has a preface and 3 marvelous pages on reasons for choosing "love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control". Each month starts with a sepia toned photograph of trees or leaves, which is subtly reproduced on the following pages of the month. The font size is not large, but very clear and easy to read. It is an aesthetically pleasing layout and this devotional makes a perfect gift for Christmas, to keep on one's desk or prayer corner, and to be cherished for years to come.
Max Lucado's folksy, easy-to-read style hits home in "Grace for the Moment". I found his daily writings to be profound and encouraging. His unique ability to relate scripture verses to my everyday struggles and challenges has provided me rich opportunities to reflect on my life and my relationship with the Lord. I recommend this devotional highly.
Lucado is a master with interpreting the Bible for Christians today. His words are sincere and non-judgmental. Yet, he goes right to the heart of how we need to live our lives in this world. The daily devotionals are brief, humorous, insightful and unique. A great start or end to anyone's day.
I met a friend, Gabriela, in Ecuador on a mission trip this summer and now we are special friends who pray for and encourage each other daily. I purchased two of the books -- one for me and one for her. It is so great to e-mail her daily and know that we are both reading the same words each day. Many times we share with each other about the message which Max Lucado has spoken through God's Word. My daughter, Laurie 17, and I also have begun to read this devotional book together during breakfast. For many years, I have written a scripture on a card and put it in Laurie's lunch. It is now very easy to write the scripture from Lucado's book for her to be reminded of during lunchtime. Lucado is my most favorite Christian author. You will enjoy this devotional book.
A wondeful devotional guide by a man who knows where the Lord lives. This book was a gift from my sister Jan which I treasure dearly. I go to this book frequently when I need reassurance or when I'm down in the doldrums. I go to this book to understand my Heavenly Father's will for my life. Max Lucado makes difficult very simple in his writing and it takes a very talented man to make that work. May God continue to bless you Max, and your work of course.Reviewed by Heather Marshall Negahdar (SUGAR-CANE)
