You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be
Pastor and author Max Lucado’s books are like a favorite pair of jeans: comfortable, reliable, not too pretentious, and appropriate for almost every occasion. Drawing upon his previous book “Cure for the Common Life,” this little gem is a great gift for graduates or anyone who is at a place in their life wondering what they are going to do next.
In short descriptive chapters, Lucado weaves a common thread: God created each of us as unique individuals, hand-crafting us in His image for a specific purpose. Each chapter contains a title phrase, scripture reference, and a couple of pages of interesting and captivating story. In each, you will find comfort, hope, and a challenge.
Having been a fan of Lucado’s works for years and utilizing the original source material for a discipleship class, there was nothing new here. But it was still reassuring to read through the stories, identifying and finding a source of encouragement along the way.
“You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be” is a great gift, both very readable and making you think at the same time.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided as a part of the Thomas Nelson Book Sneeze program.
