    My Review Of Six Hours One Friday: Living in the Power of the Cross By Max Lucado

    Well as always everyone knows, I love Max Lucado, and everything he has written. This book is no different. I really enjoyed this book and it is a revelation. It is amazing to know and read why He died on the cross for me.

    This was such a heartfelt book for me; I could not put it down. One of my favorite chapters was God VS. Death, wow what a relief to know that even if I am dying every day it will be for a very good reason. This book spoke to me, reassuring me that Jesus has something planned for me beyond this life, and I believe this with all of my being.

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

    The way Max Lucado portrays the cross and how our father must have felt with his son on the cross gave me chills and brought me to tears throughout the book, especially the last page. As a parent, I simply can't imagine. He has a way of relating certain Bible stories to real life situations, allowing the reader to have a glimpse of the 6 hours leading up to the crucifixion. The ultimate story of grace and hope.

    I thought this book was wonderful and encouraged me to look at my life and make sure that I'm putting my anchors down in the right places. I plan on really digging into the study guide and look forward to learning more.
    Thank you BookSneeze for allowing me to review this book.

    In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado explores Jesus' death and re

    In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado explores Jesus' death and resurrection in a new way. Lucado retells some of the Bible stories we have heard over and over again with a new point of view. Jesus' death from the centurion's point of view, from the thief that hung on the cross next to him, from Mary Magdalene's point of view. Lucado's beautiful storytelling helps to illustrate how much Jesus' death meant and still means to us. Lucado also tells some other Bible stories such as Zaccheus, the adulteress that was almost stoned, and the Samaritan woman at the well. These are all people that were touched by Jesus' life. Lucado makes three key points, stating that Jesus' death and resurrection is our anchor in these three ways. Our lives are not futile. Our failures aren't fatal. Our deaths are not final. We live for Jesus, so our lives are not futile. They are not for nothing. Our failures aren't fatal. God will forgive us. Our deaths are not final. Jesus died for us so death does not have to be the end. This book really brings home why Jesus died for us and what it achieved. Though it is not my favorite Lucado book, it was a good read.

    I love reading books by Max Lucado, and Six Hours One Friday, is

    I love reading books by Max Lucado, and Six Hours One Friday, is no exception! Lucado writes this book in three sections, which he calls Anchor Points. Anchor Point number 1 is titled “My life is not futile”, Anchor Point number 2 is titled “My failures are not fatal” and Anchor Point number three is titled “My death is not final”. Each anchor point gives you an opportunity to evaluate your own life to see how sturdy your faith is when faced with one of the three storms Storm of futility, Storm of Failure, and Storm of Finality. But, Lucado reminds us through God’s word that we do not have to face these monsters or storms alone. There is One who tackled them already. There is One who made a way. There is One who spent six hours on a cross one Friday.

    Lucado writes in the most amazing way to make you feel as though he were writing to you and you alone. He writes so that you listen. He writes so that you understand. And he writes so that you come to know your Maker in a meaningful and personal way.

    I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to read this book. Lucado takes stories from the Bible and illustrates them in his own language. It is truly amazing to read and to simply become immersed in all the good things God has for your life. Thank you Booksneeze for this opportunity to read a book by one of my favorite authors!
