For more than three decades, pastor and bestselling author Max Lucado has shown us Jesus. In this capstone book, he takes us further on the journey to know the life and character of the Savior.
This book describes both the person Jesus was on earth and how to live in a personal relationship with him and is divided into six sections:
- Miracle Worker
- Lamb of God
- Returning King
By exploring Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as well as specific details like how he interacted with his friends and his enemies, what he did with time alone, how he acted at a party, this compilation from Max Lucado—now with original never-before-read content from Max—gives readers the chance to become more familiar with the man at the center of the greatest story ever told.
Max writes “Don’t settle for a cursory glance or a superficial understanding. Look long into the heart of Christ and you’ll see it. Grace and life. Forgiveness of sin. The defeat of death. This is the hope he gives.”
Jesus wants you to know him. As you read these pages, may the Hero of all history talk to you personally, and may you find in him the answer to your deepest needs.
From the Publisher
What you’ll learn from this book:
Jesus Gets You
The God of the universe became a human just like you. He felt all the emotions you have felt: fear, worry, hope, compassion. Jesus understands what you are going through because he has gone through it too. And because of this, you can go to God with your every need knowing He is in solidarity with you and has ultimate triumph over any problem you may face.
Jesus Values You
Jesus’ love for you is not dependent on anything you do. You don’t have to act a certain way or reach a certain goal to earn Jesus’ love. Jesus loves you simply because you’re you. And Jesus thought you were valuable enough to die for.
Jesus Teaches You
Jesus loves you so much that he doesn’t want to leave you the way you are—he wants to make you more like him! Jesus’ life and miracles teach you how to trust God, how to have hope in your trials, how to have compassion for others, and how to live like the creation you were meant to be.
Jesus Saves You
While on the cross, Jesus felt the indignity and disgrace of a criminal. No, he was not guilty. No, he had not committed a sin. And, no, he did not deserve to be sentenced. But Jesus’ love extends so far that he was willing to wear your sin so you could wear his righteousness. Jesus conquered sin and death so that you could live at home with him.
