Cast of Characters by Max Lucado – The Book Review
This book is another piece of art by Mr. Lucado. Along 22 Chapters, he describes many Bible characters, telling their stories. He presents analogies between theirs and our contemporary lives, showing how much God loves us no matter what.
He selected the following characters:
- Joseph – Jesus’ father
- Matthew – Jesus’ disciple
- the woman who washed Jesus’ feet
- Samaritan woman
- Martha and Lazarus
- a paralyzed man at the pool of Bethesda
- John – Jesus’ disciple
- two criminals – crucified with Jesus
and many others.
Through Max’s perception, we see that all of them are sinners like ourselves, and there is always hope that God will touch each one of us.
At the end of each chapter, there is a list of inquiries for discussion and reflection.
The publishers were kind to send me a copy for an uncompromised book review through the Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers Program.
