    Just Like Jesus Devotional is in many good ways a book that is typical of author Max Lucado. The book is divided into thirty days of reading that includes a scripture verse representing the main theme, some reflections, and finishes with a robust challenge section that calls you to respond to the day’s reading by thinking, hearing, reflecting, and speaking. In this section of the reading, Lucado really invites the reader to be an active participant in becoming “just like Jesus.”

    I opened this review by saying that this book is typical of Max Lucado’s writing. What I meant by that is that it is: focused on Jesus, very encouraging, and very easy to read and relate to. Lucado is a very good writer of devotional style books. Though I read this book more quickly than the thirty prescribed days, I could tell that it would be great for a daily devotional. The chapters are meaty but short enough to fit into a tight schedule. It also leaves the reader with thought-provoking questions and challenges that linger with you afterwards--the kinds of questions you could keep in your head all day and chew on while you fold laundry or clear your inbox or drive to work.

    While I would recommend this book to almost anyone, I did have a few things I wished were different. I wished he’d used a consistent translation for his primary source and used others for nuance, rather than using what seemed like a different translation for each verse. It was hard to keep track of. My only other pause came from some specific advice he gives about finding your calling. I found his advice to be narrow and formulaic and not accounting enough for the grace of God working through our weakness, which is weird because it didn’t fit with the overall picture the rest of the book gave of a God who steps in and heals and redeems our lost and broken selves.

    Minor criticisms aside, this was a great devotional from a great devotional author. If I see the name Max Lucado on something I’m about to read, I can count on being encouraged in my faith.

    My Review Of Just Like Jesus Devotional: A Thirty-Day Walk with the Savior By Max Lucado

    I being a Max Lucado fan absolutely love this devotional. I have the book by Max Just Like Jesus and this devotional has many characteristics that the book does, a daily devotional with some very interesting and thought provoking questions after each reading, this is great for bible study.

    You can use it as a study guide in a group or personal setting. I use it as a study aide along with my bible. In addition, the question and answer section at the end of each chapter were challenging and thought provoking, which I found perfect to fit my needs.

    I would recommend this devotional to all Christians and non-Christians alike who would like to get closer to Jesus. This is a thought provoking and very encouraging devotional, a wonderful gift for new Christians as well.

    Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishing via Booksneeze for giving me the opportunity to read and review it.

    Max Lucado's "Just Like Jesus Devotional" is a 30-day

    Max Lucado's "Just Like Jesus Devotional" is a 30-day devotional designed to deepen your faith, and encourage you to live your life with the heart of Jesus. The daily devotions in this book are a little bit longer than most other devotionals, but they are definitely worth the extra time.




    As with most devotionals, each day's reading begins with a short Bible verse that remains the theme for that day's devotion. After the verse, Lucado builds on the verse by relating it to our daily lives - helping to make it easy to understand, and show how it applies to our modern lives.




    What makes this devotional stand out to me was the section that follows the explanation of the verses. Lucado challenges us through a series of four sections, named "thinking", "hearing", "reflecting" and "thinking". Through these sections, Max Lucado offers personal questions for you to ponder about your spiritual life, and faith. He also offers lengthier Scripture references that tie in to the questions he poses. What I enjoyed was how each section builds on the one before it, really allowing you to soak in the message, and apply it to your own life.




    Overall I would give this book a 5/5 - Lucado hit a home run with this devotional, and I think that this 30 day challenge would benefit any believer!
