This book talks about burdens through the lens of Psalm 23. If you are considering reading this book I'll try to help you, but if you just want a summary you could probably skip my review.
I went through this book with a small group and the reading was a good foundation for discussion, but the reading itself was a bit to ...more

in such a way that you feel like he is talking directly to you. He is a pastor and minister of Jesus and it really shows in all that he says, whether in the written or spoken word.
Psalm 23 is one of my favorites. Love the fresh insights shared by Max. Lay down the burdens you were never intended to carry and rest in the loving arms of our Savior. This excerpt summarizes it better than I can.
Rest from the burden of a small god. Why? Because I have found the Lord.
Rest from doing things my way. Why? Because the Lord is my Shepherd.
Rest from endless wants. Why? Because I shall not want.
Rest from weariness. Why? Because he makes me to lie down.
Rest from worry. ...more

This was a very good, VERY thought-provoking book. I like this author a lot. I enjoy how he writes and how presents things in his books.
We all have burdens we carry around with us. As Christians, we are to give these burdens to the Lord. And anyone who has tried doing this, knows that is is so much easier said than done.
But, what if we took a clue from King David and apply the words he penned in Psalm 23, during a particularly trying time in his life? What if, we let God be our shepherd? Wha ...more
That being said I loved the breakdown of Psalm 23, and I feel like the overall message of the book was still a positive one.
Max Lucado walks the reader through the most famous Psalm of all - Psalm 23 - and shows us very clearly that reading this psalm should provide comfort in time of distress, but a reminder that God is prepared to take all of our burdens away, castin ...more
A verse to remember by in this second reading of Traveling Light. God's timing is perfect and He is good all the time, to prepare me during an accident and how to deal with it. Max Lucado's style is memorable as he fills his chapters with little stories and personal experiences. The Word is well researched and explained, then linked to real life. I hope it helps other readers out there too!
***I just finished this book a couple of days ago. It really helped me during some difficult days. There were so many times where I felt like the author was speaking directly to me and my situation. Psalm 23 means so much more to me now than it ever has in the ...more
