Book Review Of One God One Plan One Life By Max Lucado

One God One Plan One Life By Max Lucado


Synopsis:

One of America’s favorite pastors, Max Lucado offers his first 365 devotional for teens, encouraging them to trust God and His perfect plan for their lives.
Life is hard, and today’s teens could use daily guidance and reassurance that God is with them, through it all and despite it all. In One God, One Plan, One Life, bestselling author Max Lucado offers teens an accessible way to connect with their Lord. Daily devotions address such topics as faith and obedience but also offer wisdom on topics that teens battle, such as purity, bullying, alcohol and drug use, and self-image. Each day includes a short
devotion and accompanying scripture as well as a take-away application that will inspire and challenge teens to trust in God and His plans for them.


One God, One Plan, One Life helps teens to cut through life’s distractions and rely on the one thing that is truly important—a relationship with God.

Features & Benefits:

  • Max’s first 365 devotional for<!more> teens and tweens
  • 365 scriptures, devotional thoughts, and life-shaping applications
  • Encourages daily quiet time and developing a personal relationship with God

My Take On This Book:


As with all my devotionals I have my pick of which ones, I love and this is one of them. I love Max and I have an awful lot of his books, I buy them as often as my billfold allows me to. If you have, a teen and they love the Lord or even if they do not know Jesus yet, this would be a wonderful devotional for them to have by their bedside table. I thought that this was well written for teens and easy for them to follow every day and understand it. It has some good notes in the back of the book. Along with that is 30 days with Jesus, which will walk you through the life of Jesus while He was still here on earth. I would recommend this all teens who know Jesus and those who would like to know Jesus. There are also some great books recommended for teens in the back of this lovely devotional. I give this devotional five stars!

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson part of the Booksneeze review bloggers program, for my honest and un-biased opinion.



Author Bio:


In just under two decades of writing, Max Lucado has accomplished more than most writers hope for in a lifetime. Most of his books have appeared on one or more best seller lists, including those published by the "New York Times," "USA Today," "Publishers Weekly," and the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA). Aside from hardcover books, Lucado's writings have also been published as children's books, videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs, music CDs, mass paperback booklets, apparel, giftware, bookmarks, calendars, study Bibles, workbooks, curricula, and plush products. In spring 2003, Hallmark/Dayspring Cards launched a new gift card line featuring excerpts from Lucado's writings--and has already sold more than one million cards.

All this success has drawn more than a little attention to a previously low-profile Texas author and minister. Lucado has been featured in a wide range of media, including "USA Today," "Larry King Live," and "NBC Nightly News." He has spoken at the National Prayer Breakfast before the President of the United States. He has traveled with internationally renowned musicians as a special speaker on their music tours, such as the highly successful "Come Together & Worship Tour" (sponsored by Chevrolet) with Grammy Award-winning artists Michael W. Smith and Third Day.

Journey to the Top

Lucado was born in 1955 in San Angelo, Texas, and raised in Andrews, Texas, the youngest of four children. His father was an Exxon oil field mechanic who, Lucado remembers, always smelled of grease cleaner. "It makes it easy for me to see a God who is loving and kind--because my dad was," he says. His mother was a nurse who grew up working in the cotton fields.
Lucado went through a period of rebellion against his parents' values and their God during his teens and into college. But it wasn't long before he found himself drawn back to his roots, back to God. He married, spent time serving as a missionary in Brazil, and returned to the States, where he began working as a church minister and writing on the side.

Secret to Success

From all accounts, Max Lucado is not a man consumed by sales, awards, and achievements. He often turns down media interviews since they impede on family and ministry commitments. He spends the bulk of his week serving as senior minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. And he is truly surprised by his own success
impressed by his one-in-a-million wife and three amazing daughters than by his successful writing career.
