The Gift for All People
by Max Lucado
In The Gift for All People, Max Lucado offers up sweet and simple thoughts on grace. This collection of short stories is a perfect gift to give away because it is so very accessible (clear and easy to read, quick-moving chapters) and offers a clear presentation of salvation, grace, and forgiveness. More particularly, this could be a perfect Easter gift as Max spends time talking about the gift of Jesus’s death and resurrection.
Many (but not all!) of the stories will be familiar to long-term Max Lucado fans as they’ve been compiled from his longer works. As a long-term Christian book reader and Max Lucado fan, I wasn’t sure that there was anything new in this book for me. Even so, I still enjoyed it. Sometimes it’s just a joy to celebrate the clear and simple Gospel. What a great reminder, especially during the season of Lent, of how God loves us. I could see reading one of these small chapters each morning or evening in preparation for Easter and it being a blessing.
I think this book would be even more fitting, though, for those seeking and asking questions, new believers, or even those in a season of struggling to accept forgiveness and grace. The book description itself says, “If you’ve already accepted it, you’ll thank Him again. And if you’ve never accepted it, I pray that you will. For it’s the gift of a lifetime. A gift for all people.” That’s a perfect description.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
