Almost 20 years ago, I read my first book by Max Lucado. No Wonder They Call Him the Savior and God Came Near were my first introduction to the down to earth style Lucado is known for.
Experiencing the Truth of the Cross
Max Lucado takes you through the drama of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ—bringing to life Peter’s denial, Pilate’s hesitancy, and John’s loyalty. Relive the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, from the foggy garden of Gethsemane to the incandescent room of the resurrection. No Wonder They Call Him the Savior leads you up the hill of mankind’s highest hope and reminds you why he deserves to be called our Savior.
I always enjoy reading Lucado’s books. They take the ordinary biblical events that I’ve grown up hearing and make me take a second look. What did the disciples do when they left the cross? Why didn’t the ones who loved Jesus the most take on the job of burying His body? How did Peter feel after his betrayal?
Throughout the book, Lucado uses real life people and their actions to help the reader understand the events that took place at the Cross.
This newly released edition includes a study guide at the end of the book with discussion questions and additional Bible passages.
I received a free review copy of this book for the purpose of this review from Book Sneeze and Tommy Nelson.
