This is the first Max Lucado book I read and I was hooked on this author. He has written many new books since and each one is inspiring.

As usual, Max Lucado delivers.
The first chapter in this book is called "Hurricane Warnings" which caught my attention. The author compares the storms of life to hurricanes, and advises readers to "anchor deep", in order to make it through the storm. This book is one of the tools he offers for anchoring deep, and reestablishing a firm foundation in Christ.

Anyone familiar with Max Lucado will know that he uses insightful stories and analogies to drive his points home. He refers to the three "Big F's" on the human report card:

Every time I read a Max Lucado book for the first time, I wonder what took me so long to get to it. This book is no exception.

Lucado points out that the failures in our lives, the faults we see in ourselves, are part of a broken creation - but they DON'T change our worth in God's eyes. He illustrates Bible passages in a way that hits home - drawing parallels between current events and those that happened 2000 years ago. It's a must read for those suffering from depression, from anxiety about li

Dreading with your life? Read this. Max incorporates the eternally powerful words and events in the life of Jesus with ours, I mean the life of a common person. This is no self help book. This helps the hopeless to look upon Jesus who hang on the cross for Six hours, One Friday. What happened that time, can happen in your life too...

Contemporary Christian author takes a look at what the 3is of the death on the cross.

Three anchor points
1. My life is not futile
2. My failures are not fatal
3. My death is not final

Good reading for the serious student of Christianity

This is a great book to read around Easter time. I've never understood his death as much as I did after reading this book. It brought a new meaning to Easter for me. The book I have is a three book set.

Max Lucado seems to be more of a novel writer. Didn't like his style of writing. He seemed to be bouncing everywhere on different subjects. Haven't read any other books by him. Really didn't like this one.

This book gave me the chills several times. It is a short and easy read, but it says so much. As always you come away from this book with a renewed sense and better understanding of how much Jesus loves us, and the knowledge that if you are saved everything really is going to be ok.

Good book - would make a good Bible Study book.

"My life is not futile.
My failures are not fatal.
My death is not final."
