When I first received my book in the mail, it was the worst time to read for me. I read to relax and learn, neither of which I was able to do at that moment. After a week of battling life, I forced myself to sit and read. It took all of thirty seconds for me to be pulled into this book. I read through it in one sitting, and it was exactly what I needed to hear.
Max Lucado, once again, has written a book from his heart to reach out to any reader. With the use of simple sentences he brings a spiritual concept into our earthly view. He trades the robes of an old testiment character for the uniform of a janitor, and imediately a reader can identify with the man’s situation. His creative genius shines when he reveals that the modern man is really Moses.
The book itself is well structured into three parts,’The Song of the Minstrel’, ‘The Touch of the Master’, and ‘The Guest of the Maaestro.’ These three sections reveal that God is still working in our lives, even when we are broken, and preparing for the day we will join Him. Max challenges the reader to make the book a personal journey by providing a book guide in the back. This book guide acts as a workbook, leading the reader through a Bible study. The guid can be used individually or in a small group setting.
Overall, I am impressed with the book. not only did it have an impact in my personal life, but it’s a book I continuously keep picking up. I recommend this book to anyone needing inspiration and encouragement.
