Solid Gold!

I've read many tracts or tract-type books over the years and this is the first one that I really really liked. So much I came back and bought several more. It does so much more than explain the concept of why we need a Savior, but it explains WHY Jesus is that Savior. It also talks about us mere mortals and how we are uniquely and SPECIFICALLY made. Really great little book that breaks down the Gospel message wrapped in Love.


I have loved all of Max Lacado's books but this one stands above them all... it is a verse from the Bible that most everyone can quote and yet do we really 'know' the meaning of this verse. I have read the book several times and have shared with many others... thanks Max for bringing this verse back to us in a very real form. I have also boughten this book and given to those that are without can't read the book and not change something about your life after everything Jesus went through for you and me.

excellent study

This is sooooooooooooo good!!!! Buy it! Get it! Get a group together to study it.

Bringing words to life...

Max Lucado is one of my favorite Christian authors, in that he has a style of writing that takes you beyond the words and into the emotions of people and places. In 3:16: The Numbers of Hope, he uses the verse John 3:16 for a number of mini-sermons that place emphasis on each word and phrase of the verse. It's an excellent read, and forced me to stop and actually contemplate all that the verse means again... Contents: The Most Famous Conversation in the Bible; No One Like Him; Hope for the Hard Heart; When You Get Booted Out; The Only One and Only; The Heart He Offers; Heaven's "Whoever" Policy; Believe and Receive; God's Gracious Grip; Hell's Supreme Surprise; What Makes Heaven Heavenly; The Last Word on Life; The 3:16ed Life; Only Jesus - 40 Days with the Son; Notes Lucado is able to break down the verse in ways that you might never think of. Each chapter starts off with a story from his life or some illustration from life that anyone can relate to. From there, he turns the illustration in a spiritual direction and shows how the words of John 3:16 in many ways encapsulates everything that the Bible teaches and stands for. To me, the best value comes from his ability to paint color with his words, to give us a scene from the Bible and bring the characters and the message to life in a way that brings fresh perspective. I guess since I've always had a hard time doing that on my own, I appreciate and value it all the more when I come across it in someone's writing. For non-Christians, this book will succinctly provide the message of the Gospel. For Christians, you'll once again be reminded in fresh ways of God's love... An excellent read...

A book that makes a great gift

Max Lucado has a way to illustrate concepts in the bible to make them crystal clear. I was raised with daily bible reading at the dinner table and know the bible well. As well as I know it, reading Max Lucado's books, and especially 3:16, has renewed and deepened the realization that God's love as expressed in Jesus is all encompassing and unconditional. He loves me when I don't love, or even like, myself.
