Book Overview

Pop culture and psychobabble tell us to make ourselves the center of the universe in order to be happy. Churches have communicated the false idea that God exists to give us all that we selfishly want. In this book, Max Lucado reminds us that it's not about us, it's all about God. It is through this shift in thinking that we can truly live an unburdened, happy life.

Great Discussion Book

This book is wonderful to spark discussions with Middle & High School age students in your church. I highly recommend this book.

Its All About Being Content!

I can not say that I am not addicted to Mr. Lucado's books because I am very addicted. The reason is simple- he always has a angle that we aren't leaning toward although we should eb doing so. In this book, it all about glorifying God and realizing that He want s us to live a happy stress-free life. But we must be content. It is only then, can He shine through us and multiply His Kingdom. Just this week, I was invited to go shopping with a friend and realized that she was so miserable because she was focusing on the rainy weather, the $500 suit she yearned for, and the mortgage payment. I handed her my book from my "mission" box in the back of my car. She called me tonight and said that Mr. Lucado "rocks!" She sounded much happier! Thanks, Mr. Lucado for helping The Lord to keep us on track and "rockin for Christ!"

It's Not About Me

I cannot think of another book which is more needed today in this world of self-centered materialism and instant gratification, which everyone of us is susceptible. There is no one like Max Lacado to get to the heart of a spiritual/psychological/emotional issue. Not only does Rev Lacado have a way with words, he expresses our innermost feelings and is able to help us put our finger on those nebulous feelings we could not quite pin down, much less admit to. He points out that we all struggle with insecurity and the self-life, but that there is a solution in The One who gave His All for us. I have personally experienced that "There is power in the name of Jesus". This is a book that can be reread every now and then, as we all need to get our perspective and our priorities back in order from time to time.

Penetrating Principles in the Max Lucado Style!

Max Lucado is well-known for his ability to write devotional material that is extremely powerful, yet is easy to read and simple to comprehend. It's Not About Me is sure to be a Lucado classic and is a must read for every Christian who faces emotional wounds, frustration, discouragment, or even minor set backs.The reader will move quickly through the chapters and can easily gain perspective on their relationship to God and the spiritual struggles taking place in the heavenlies. This book will be useful for both experienced Christians and new Christians as it directs the reader toward Scripture and doesn't attempt to replace or redirect any emphasis on the Holy Bible.

Easy read... weighty material

I bought this book while out of town on a business trip and began reading it over dinner. By the time I went to bed that night in the hotel room, I had finished the entire thing. I usually am not a fast reader, but Lucado writes so poetically and conversationally that you can't help but keep turning the pages. I've read many books on this topic, some more "scholarly" than this one. But "It's Not About Me" hangs with the best of them. Don't let the big print or the easily read conversational tone fool you. This is a serious book about a weighty matter, and Lucado has done a wonderful job of covering the topic biblically.I would like to also comment one of the other reviewer's statements. The reviewer named Peniel G.G.G. has made a mockery of this entire system by using the review space to promote his own heretical work. Read his other reviews, and you will see they all say the same thing... "Jesus told me he likes this book. Now go buy my book too." I can guarantee you Jesus doesn't like some of the books he's positively reviewed. I don't know what voice this man is hearing, but if you really want to hear Jesus' voice, read the Bible!!!
