My Review Of Six Hours One Friday: Living in the Power Of The Cross By Max Lucado


Does life feel futile? Doesn't have to.

Do some of your failures seem fatal? They aren't.

And your death. Does the grave appear to be the final stop? According to Christ, your death is just the start of the something great.

There is a truth greater than all the losses and sorrows of life. And it can be discovered in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

InSix Hours One Friday, Max Lucado delves into the meaning of Jesus' last hours on the cross. Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning. You are forgiven and loved by a Savior who died for you. And an empty tomb proclaims that death does not have the final word.

"Peace where there should be pain. Confidence in the midst of crisis. Hope defying despair.Does death have the last word?I can see Jesus wink as he gives the answer,Not on your life."

My Take On This Book:

Well as always everyone knows, I love Max Lucado, and everything he has written. This book is no different. I really enjoyed this book and it is a revelation. It is amazing to know and read why He died on the cross for me.

This was such a heartfelt book for me; I could not put it down. One of my favorite chapters was God VS. Death, wow what a relief to know that even if I am dying every day it will be for a very good reason. This book spoke to me, reassuring me that Jesus has something planned for me beyond this life, and I believe this with all of my being.

Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishing via Booksneeze for giving me the opportunity to review it.
