    1 thought on “God's Story, Your Story: When His Becomes Yours”

    1. I usually don't write a review and just rate them but I felt compel to do so even for a short review. I honestly LOVE the book and it made me cry! Yes, it did I received this book today - youth edition - as I was one of the people who won this giveaway (:D) and I also finished it today! hehe. I just can't stop reading! I read it for barely five hours. The book made me emotional I'm going through hard times right now. I'm failing my classes, my mom is mad at me, I always lie these days, I'm trul [...]

    2. Got this one on an Kindle "special of the day" and read it the next day. Very uplifting, but also made me think about how often my story is focused on me rather than on God.

    3. Just last week Max Lucado released a new book, God's Story, Your Story - and I was offered a chance to review it. If you haven't heard of Max Lucado, then you've probably been hiding under a rock because he's written a gazillion books. (I kid, I kid. But he really has written a lot of books.) This book talks about how you matter in the grand scheme of things. You are not just some insignificant waste of space that's just floating through life. You have a purpose and God has a special plan for yo [...]

    4. I am so much of a fiction reader that I often scoff at non fiction and skip it. Reading books like this remind me that there is so much out there to benefit from. I was in sixth or seventh grade when I first experienced something from Max Lucado, but since then when I have seen his name on a book, I knew it would be worth while. And even more recently I have started adding his children books to my shelves for my girls. They are some of my toddler AppleBlossom's favorites. Christian Fiction can o [...]

    5. I enjoy reading Max Lucado because he has a way of turning things around and applying them to everyday life that makes parts of the Bible seem applicable in this crazy world we live in today. His books cause me to reflect and see the layers to the meanings and purpose of God's Written Word.His books are a ministry unto themselves, and I am sure he has led many to find Christ just as he has cemented and confirmed other Christians beliefs by showing and teaching of God's Unlimited Grace. I especia [...]

    6. I listened to this book today, as I worked, shopped, and waited at the doctors office. The authors are ministers. One said he wrote it on a flight. I didn't recognize some of the Bibles he quoted. One he used was MSG, so it kept bringing to mind the seasoning MSG. I do know the method of quotes of scripture using the chapters from the Bible. He did a nice job of telling about the life of Christ, and related Gods plan through scriptures, and through every day stories. He brought the scriptures in [...]

    7. I have truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it anyone that loves the name of Jesus Christ. It has filled my heart with so much to look forward to his second coming. No more pains, tears, fears or weariness of this old world and body. We will have a new body and will live with God and Jesus forever and ever. A must read for all Christians.

    8. I love Lucado's easy-going style. His stories hit home and hit my heart. He doesn't shout and condemn (as many a pastor has in my past) rather, he walks along side you, gently conversing and opening your eyes to the truth as written in the Bible. Calls to mind the road to Emmaus. Walking along, discussing the events of the day, only to discover the person you most want to talk about is right there in your midst. The Holy Spirit sings with joy when I read truth about my Savior. I loved this book. [...]

    9. I really appreciated this book in the way Max weaves between Jesus's time on earth and our stories. Understanding Jesus's character and choices helps us have a model to live by--additionally understanding how the good and bad times play a role in our story gives depth as well.

    10. I really like the book. The end of the book was questions to be used in a study group. Max Lucado does not disappoint. I especially enjoyed the chapters on Heaven.

    11. The Word and Truth put simply. Lucado encourages focusing on God alone, and then watching how He directs your story.

    12. Max Lucado in his new book, "God's Story, Your Story" published by Zondervan teaches us when His story becomes yours. I have read that Max Lucado is called America's Pastor and after reading this book it is even more true.From the inside jacket: 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 [...]

Our lives are time spent i [...]

    14. GOD’S STORY YOUR STORYWhen His Becomes YoursBy Max LucadoWhen I open my heart to God He will rewrite the story of my life. Everyone wants to know where they came from and that is why God gave us His story – the Bible. The key message to the entire Bible is found in John 3:16 – God loved and He gave to the world, He loved and gave to us, His Son so that we could experience Him. He gave us a way out the sinful life if we choose to make His story ours.Jesus was born into our everyday world so [...]

    15. Each of us is living out our own story. For most of us, the characters have been revealed, the theme is pretty evident, and the setting, while it may change from time to time, is established. The plot, however, can leave us bewildered and wondering if there is a reason for the chaos and confusion that surround us. Who would write such a story? What kind of writer would leave their main characters in such turmoil, facing one trial after another and dealing with insurmountable odds? A good one!We [...]

    16. 4.5 Stars/Non-Fiction; ReligionGod’s Story; Your Story (Youth Edition)by Max LucadoZondervan Published 10/01/2011Rating: 4.5 Stars*slated for library purchase*I’ve heard it said that only when you can teach something to someone else in a way that they understand, does a person truly know it. If that is the case, then Max Lucado really knows his way around the Bible.Being a teenager is hard, there is no doubt about it. Especially in today’s volatile environment. Trying to balance life as a [...]

    17. GOD’S STORY, YOUR STORY (Youth Edition)When HIS Story Becomes YoursBy Max Lucado Max Lucado asks “what is the text (or story) of our lives?” We cannot look inside of ourselves to discover who we are, we must look at ourselves through God’s eyes to discover what we can be!Ordinary people can do extraordinary things when we join our story with God’s. But we must pray for strength against Satan’s attacks so we can complete our story.The goal of every story is home, whether we are goin [...]

    18. This book is a great, easy to read devotional for someone who is looking to learn what it means to commit your life to Christ. Like all his books, Lucado included many great real world illustrations of his key points. Many of these are personal stories, which make you feel like you are just sitting with him, talking about what it means to be a Christian. I received the youth edition as a first reads book, and while I haven't read the regular edition of the book, I did note the differences from t [...]

    19. I was completely engrossed in this book from start to finish. This is Max Lucado's best book to date. I appreciated each and every story that was shared in the book, and I found myself near tears many times. I think the thing that struck me the most is that the emphasis of the book is that God is there in every single circumstance, and He is guiding you through the hard times. All of us go through struggles. Some of us live a life fraught with struggles. Does that mean that God is not in control [...]

    20. It has been about a decade since I have read a book by Max Lucado. (Max, I'm sorry.) It wasn't for any dislike I had for his books. In fact, quite the opposite. I had probably spent the previous decade reading every book he published. I guess I just needed a break. But the title alone intrigued me enough to lure me back. I'm glad it did. Jumping into a book by Max Lucado is like putting on your comfy pants on a rainy day. Being the lyrical wordsmith he is, his writing just warms you instantly. T [...]

    21. I love stories. I love reading them, watching them, listening to them. There’s nothing better than reading a spellbinding novel with a satisfying ending or listening to stories that take you back in time and up your family tree. Every life is a story in progress and those who have surrendered the author’s pen to God are guaranteed a happy ending. But like all good stories, there’s a lot of conflict and struggle between the beginning and end. During these times it’s easy to develop tunnel [...]

    22. This is book is amazing in how it really sinks deep into your thoughts. Max Lucado is a great author who knows exactly how to get inside your heart. His analogies to life are so easy to follow and have such a great effect on me. Especially the one with the Zoo, that one really hit me because I remember when I went to the Zoo one time when I was young and thought that the birds were more interesting than the Lions or Gorillas. Its funny how people experience the same things. Another thing that I [...]

    23. In this book Max Lucado explores the Atonement of Jesus Christ (how he suffered and died to take upon himself our sins so that we can be made worthy return to live with Him.) He uses a number of simple illustrations and anecdotes to help people grasp principles of doctrine which could be difficult for some.His easy going manner is punctuated with a multitude of scripture citations from various translations of the Bible.Please keep in mind that in his discussion sometimes he is a bit more familia [...]

    24. Every Christian in the world needs to read this book. Max is already my very favorite Christian author, but this book is one of the most beautiful snapshots of God's promise for His people I've ever read. Max uses examples from the Bible, from history and from his own life experience to show that "in all things God works for the good of those who love Him" (Romans 8:28). No matter what -- coincidences, accidents, physical or mental impairments, disasters -- nothing in life is meaningless, and al [...]

    25. ARC Copy received through the giveaway program.I am a big fan of Max Lucado's books and I enjoyed this one a lot! In this book, Lucado walks through the story of Christ, starting with his birth, moving through his life, ministry and death, and ending with the start of the church and the first missionaries, and shows how Christ's story can parallel with our own. I particularly appreciated the chapter on Paul's missions and how God sometimes closes doors. I would strongly recommend this book for [...]

    26. How does Max Lucado always have exactly the right words? I could read one sentence of this book and spend the day contemplating what it had to say. Okay, the answer's easy. He writes for God. Clearly. God's Story is inspiring, motivating and thought provoking. My only problem with this book was how soon it was over. I was just getting into the thick of it, and then it seemed Max wrapped it all up and my Kindle said END. I would have liked so much more thinking on this topic, more ways for my sou [...]

    27. I won this in a giveaway but didn't realize when I entered that it was the teen edition. Not having a teen to give it to, I've read it in bits and pieces in order to review it. I haven't found a Max Lucado book yet that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed. I will be saving this for my kids when they're old enough. He addresses real issues faced by teens on their level without making it sound like they should listen to the adults because we know better. I think the lessons here would definitely help te [...]

    28. I read this book because I'll be co-teaching an upcoming online class at my church on John Eldredge's book, Epic: The Story God is Telling. They are excellent companion books, and both authors urge us to take a look at our own story within God's larger story. We are a part of His story, and He is a part of ours. It gives one a great sense of purpose and meaning. I was very touched by the ending of this one - Lucado's graduation analogy.

    29. There's probably not a clearer, more accessible writer in all of Christian writing. Lucado makes Biblical teaching personal and to the point. He also finds illustrations from real life, including his own family life, that immediately draw you in to whatever topic of scripture teaching he is addressing. This book is highly recommended for devotional purposes and I'm planning to use it for a book discussion at church with the Stephen Ministers.
