Glory Days by Max Lucado

Think your best days are behind you?

It isn't hard to fall into that trap. If you spend any time watching the news or simply listening to the latest gossip at the barbershop, you'd think the world is so much worse off than it was ten, twenty years ago.

Max Lucado's book, Glory Days is meant to temper those falsehoods and encourage you that you can live your "promised land life" now. See how he pulls from the story of the Exodus?

The first thing I noticed about this book was the size - it's much larger (thicker) than his previous books. Typically, Lucado puts out thinner, quicker reads. But this book feels heftier. Which is a good thing. I enjoy reading Lucado's words and the thicker the better right?

Inside you'll find sixteen chapters that take lessons from Moses, Joshua and the Israelite's journey from Egypt into the Promised Land and place them within your own story. Lucado fills some space with his own fantastic anecdotes as well.

One of the best things I love about reading Lucado books are the stories and the simple applications. It's encouraging to read about going from fear to victory, overcoming rejection and embracing the reality of your identity in Christ, getting rid of attitudes and other mindsets that are so unhealthy and replacing them with the truth of God.

You learn Bible, you gain practical life application and you do it all in the relaxing cushion of your favorite chair.

Max Lucado does it again with this fantastic read.
