Book Review: Glory Days by Max Lucado
If you have accepted Christ, according to Max Lucado, you are living your glory days. Glory Days is Lucado's newest book sharing how you can live each day with God as your helper in your own "Glory Days."
Max Lucado says many Christians underestimate what happened to them in their conversion. After conversion, Lucado says we are fully equipped to live the Christian life in our own promised land if we will claim our inheritance. Glory Days is an uplifting and encouraging book, as I find many of Lucado's to be, that it can help you live a victorious life in Him. This book is based on the book of Joshua. In the introduction of this book, Lucado shares that according to a recent research project, only eleven percent of Christians are propelled by their faith to love God and to love others with their whole hearts. This book was written to help Christians see that they can become the Christian they want to be. While we walk through the book of Joshua with Lucado's help, readers learn that they can overcome sin and fear, as well as other strongholds. In Glory Days, we see Joshua's victories and his failures and can learn from them how to apply those lessons to our own life.
I especially like that Glory Days has a study guide in the back to go along with the book. The study guide offers a great set of questions and Scripture to look up to go along with what Lucado is teaching in Glory Days. This is a good study guide to do on your own or along with a group. In addition, Glory Days includes a preview of the new devotional that will be out in December called, God is With You Every Day. This book has a daily reading from the Bible, along with readings from Max Lucado's other books compiled into this daily devotional. I recommend any Christian wanting to live a more victorious life to read Glory Days and take time to do the study guide reading and questions along with the book.
I received Glory Days from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
