If You Like Max Lucado Books, You’ll Love…

You Were Made for This Moment: Courage for Today and Hope for Tomorrow is a book by Lucado that covers the story of Queen Esther. The queen was confronted with a royal decree that was going to annhilate her people and she was faced with some tough choices. She could either remain silent or speak up, blend in or stand out. She decided to pray and fast for three days, and when it was over her God gave her the courage to speak and save her nation. In this book, Lucado shows how Esther’s story can be applied to the readers life and the same can happen.

Christmas Stories: Heartwarming Classics of Angels, a Manger, and the Birth of Hope is a collection of Christmas stories from Max Lucado. The stories come in multiple forms, from ancient Bethlehem, to rural England, to a Texas town, and all the way to the heavenly realms. The holiday time can often distract people from what really matters to them, but these stories allow the reader to explore ways in which Christ has changed the history of many people’s lives and history itself.
