Max Lucado – Just Like Jesus – 2010/041

The Back of the Book: God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you there.  He wants you to be just like Jesus.

Can you think of a better offer?

Jesus felt no guilt; God wants you to feel no guilt.  Jesus had no bad habits; God wants to do away with yours.  Jesus had no fears; God wants the same for you.  Jesus had no anxiety about death; you needn’t either.  God’s desire, his plan, his ultimate goal is to make you into the image of Christ.

But how does this change occur?  And why does the change seem so slow?  If God wants me to be just like Jesus, why do I still seem just like me?

In Just Like Jesus, Max Lucado heps you answer these questions.  He helps you understand God’s wonderful ways of transformation.  Would you like to know ore?  Then read on.  And remember:  God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you there.  He wants you to be just like Jesus.

NotJustLaura’s Review: Mr Lucado is certainly a fine writer.  This book is rich with imagery, Scriptural references and heart-warming little anecdotes.  It is a little lacking in substance, however, and wandered into superficiality at times.  I got the impression that the target audience is not that well educated or not capable of going deeply into the content.  However, it does do what it promises on the back cover and I know many people really love Mr Lucado’s writing.  I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to buy another volume though.
