Sempre bom lembrar: "Deus o ama do jeito que você é, mas se recusa a deixá-lo assim. Ele quer que você seja a cada dia mais parecido com Jesus".

Good things come in small packages...but don't let the size of the book deter you away from the powerful words inside! Once again, Max Lucado successfully invites the reader to walk closer in understanding what God what for your life. Quoting from the book, 'He loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus." Wow, just the way we are - imagine that! This book is merely 86 pages long and makes for an easy read. I urge you to read this book ...more

It was mostly a compilation of a few of his other books, mostly Just Like Jesus, but it was good to rehash this wisdom. To have a heart like Jesus is so hard for a simple man like myself, but I sure am trying. I am trying to achieve inner-peace and true happiness. And I know the ONLY way to true happiness is serving others. We think money and nice things can achieve this, but that is only a temporary fix and dishonesty with yourself. Anyway, good book.

Short book to read over a day or two. My only problem is the paraphrasing. He mentions that most verses come from the NIV, yet are not direct quotes. My problem is that if you are quoting or sourcing something, say it the way they did or don't source them.

There is little substance to the book, its not meant to be a heavy read, its meant as a moral or mood booster. So if you need a feed good speaker this is the guy to go to.

I love this little book. It is the first book have read front to back (it's VERY little) in about 5 years. Jesus healed my eyes which were broken. It was a monumental moment to actually finish a book. I look forward to actually being able to finish books now. Thank you Jesus!!

Max pumps them out...people keep buying 'em. All I really learn that that the Greek word for "race" is agon....which is where we get the word Agony.
