Good book in regards to the state of your heart. When you have a dry heart it makes you realize how much it is really you moving away from Christ not the other way around. The info is good it makes you realize why you are feeling dry.



My only problem with the book is in the intro. Rather than just makeing an outline he puts it into a prayer. The prayer is said that if you say it every day you will not have a thirsty heart.



I have the same problem with this as I do with other "say a prayer book" it

Nothing new, but good reminders.
Some quotes I like:

Religion pacifies but never satisfies.

Most Christians find the cross of Christ easier to accept than the Spirit of Christ.

The Holy Spirit pours the love OF God in our hearts, not the love FOR God.

Are you afraid of a giant? Then recall the lion and the bear. Don't look forward in fear; look backward in appreciation. God's proof is God's past. Forgetfulness sires fearfulness, but a good memory makes for a good heart.

Cast all your care on Him. Not

I've read several Max Lucado books over the past year, and I'd have to say this is my general impression of his books. Overall, they have great content and are written in an approachable way, but his wordplay and some of his jokes are forced and awkward. I wouldn't normally comment on things like that, but I found it irritating to the point of being disruptive while reading, even soliciting a few eye rolls ... "Do you keep resentments parked in your 'garudge'?" ... "When angels gather in the bre ...more

Recommends it for: Christian readers or anyone trying to find a spiritual relationship with God
Shelves: spiritual
It's only been recently that I've really come into Christianity, but as someone who immerses themselves in things, I dove into this book after a friend recommended Max Lucado as a great writer for Christians.

Lucado likens letting God into your life like drinking water. When you're thirsty, it's hard to take small sips of water. Likewise, when you need faith, God needs to be drank completely and often. Many of the passages are pretty forceful and those who are unsure of Christianity may feel rat

Max Lucado's books are so wonderful to read. He deals with all of life's sorrows, problems, defeats, disappointments, and joys of life, and shows us how to let God come into our lives to help us through all our ups and downs. He helps us to see God as our personal friend who will always be there for us, and our Father who loved us so much, He sent His Son to come to earth and willingly shed His blood so we can have forgiveness. Lucado writes in plain everyday language that anyone can understand, ...more

Max Lucado, membawa pembacanya mengarungi sumur kasih Allah melalui buku ini. Dengan rangkaian kata-kata yang baik, ia mampu menerjemahkan kerinduan Allah untuk mencurahkan kasihnya (sampai berkelimpahan) sekaligus menyampaikan teriakan-teriakan jiwa yang mengalahi dehidrasi akan kasihnya. Penulis membawa kita mengingat kembali dan membawa kita untuk selalu datang, menghilangkan mitor-mitos kehidupan rohani agar kita senantiasa mereguk air bahkan sampai tenggelam dalam sumurNya atau yang dipopul ...more

I felt it contained a lot of similar content to other books of his, but I really appreciated the last chapter that paraphrased countless promises of God into a "letter" from Him.

Lucado knocks it out of the park again. In his unique style, he presents profound truths in a simplistic manner. But don't kid yourself- this is deep and life-changing stuff, if you allow it.

Want to know the condition of your heart? This is a great place to start. I am in love with GOD and I am always seeking new ways to glorify HIM but this book put into perspective, for me, the thirst I long for during this point of my spiritual season. This book has a little bit for everyone of all spiritual seasons, so long you read it carefully and not like a novel. Read it with an expectation of gaining something, and if you allow yourself, then you will. :)

Shelves: audio, christian
There are some beautiful ideas in this book, but overall I found it to be very repetitive and too much like a church sermon. Maybe I got that feeling because I was listening to the audio, and the reader was sometimes overly dramatic. I wondered why whole paragraphs and entire pages were left out of the audio version.....first time I've come across that scenario! I had to go back and read what I missed.

Great devotional read. Max Lucado's writing style is brief yet descriptive. There is a practicality to this text that opened my mind to understanding freely walking in God's grace. I have lived most of my life as a Christian trying to be perfect in a futile effort to earn God's love versus just receiving what he freely gives to those who accept the gift of His sacrifice.

I always get so much out of Max Lucado's books. I just love how he puts things in ways that I might not have thought about. He also manages to add humor and that is very refreshing. I would recommend this book.

I finished this book the night before I left for Belize. Like all of Lucado's books, it was encouraging. It was probably a good choice just before going off on a somewhat scary adventure. It pretty much is like all of Lucado's books, and all of Lucado's books are pretty much like this one. Still, what he does he does well.

I love Max Lucado's daily devotionals and I would have enjoyed this book more if I had approached it in that way. He is an amazing wordsmith and but in a longer book like that seems a little more disjointed. God has given him a skill with analogies and stories that make our awesome God much easier to understand.

This was such a good book! BUT most amazing of all is God's timing! I SO needed this right now! It was perfect for facing Rogers situation! I highly recommend this book! Of Course Max Lucado is one of the best communicators out there so it would be almost impossible to go wrong!
Jason Arant
Lucado does an interesting job comparing the work of God's Spirit in our lives to the way water refreshes our bodies. Lucado is good at communicating personal anecdotes in a way that seems like snapshots of our own lives. More of a devotional reading than anything else.

I like Max Lucado. I really do. He's smart, in love with God but sometimes I find that I just don't enjoy his books.

I don't know if I can articulate it... but I just couldn't get through this book. Maybe one day I can figure out what it was that just didn't work for me.

In just two days, I gulped down the refreshing book, "Come Thirsty" by Max Lucado. Pardon the pun, but it really fits! This book was a welcome quenching here at the beginning of 2006. I rarely keep books, but this one will stay in my collection and will be read again and again.
