Book Review: The Gift for All People

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.  giftforallpeople

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.
