The Lucado Inspirational Reader

Posted on: January 15, 2013

“The Tallest Of Smalls” is the first Max Lucado book I read. This well presented Kids’ book made me look for more of his works, especially those picture books with lovely tales, both imaginary or inspiring true incidents.

Compared to those other books, this “The Lucado Inspirational Reader” is a different kind of collection, it has series of quotes from various Max Lucado books, collected under various headings, excellent layout and simple presentation makes you read this in one go, but you will be thinking about it for many days to come.

In a way, this book also acts as a mini “Lucado Guide”, it gives small samples from various other books, and make you look for more. In many cases the book titles themselves create a curiosity and make you google for more details immediately. For example, think about this title: “Facing Your Giants”.

Publisher (Thomsan Nelson) deserves special kudos for making this 400+ page book easily accessible, by providing very good categories and index. This means you can read this book either as a reference for your speech / presentation, or just randomly open some page and start reading.

My only complaint will be, the chosen categories (of quotes) are not wide enough, I am sure Max Lucado has covered many other things (something I have noticed in my limited reading of his books), which could’ve been covered here, instead of making it circle around few topics related to faith.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
