Is there a story behind the daily drama of your life?

Being a teenager isn’t always easy. From homework to after-school jobs to having to think about the future, life can feel chaotic. But did you know that the chaos and confusion, as well as the joys and excitements you experience, are part of God’s ordered plan?

In this teen adaptation of God’s Story, Your Story, bestselling author Max Lucado explores the divine narrative in the New Testament, as well as several contemporary examples, to show how your everyday life is part of God’s bigger redemption story, and that God is there, no matter what you may face in your life. Real teen responses and real-life application questions are also included to help you further connect God’s narrative to your own. Because God’s story is your story—and he is adding to your chapter every day.

I love Max Lucado, but was disappointed that this purchase was just a sample of the complete book. Had I known that, I would have purchassed the book to begin with. Somehow B&N needs to make it better known to consumer that books that are samples are just that and not the complete books.

I, too, thought what I was buying was the book. Very disappointed to discover it was only a sample, and ended up spending more to actually get the book.

GOD'S STORY, YOUR STORY (Youth Edition) When HIS Story Becomes Yours By Max Lucado Max Lucado asks "what is the text (or story) of our lives?" We cannot look inside of ourselves to discover who we are, we must look at ourselves through God's eyes to discover what we can be! Ordinary people can do extraordinary things when we join our story with God's. But we must pray for strength against Satan's attacks so we can complete our story. The goal of every story is home, whether we are going home, improving home, or trying to keep home safe. This is much like the Christian life when we are striving for the perfect family and home, which can only be found with our Heavenly Father. To find the path we must listen for God's voice to lead us. God will never forsake us. Even if we make a wrong turn He will redeem our story through His on the cross. Because of the cross, the final chapter of our story - Death - becomes the introduction to our new life after death. At the end of this book are review questions about each chapter to help the reader to grasp the principles put forth by Max. Each chapter has personal experience pieces by teens to expand on the points Max is making. This is a well written book that teen readers should appreciate and learn from. This would be appropriate as a gift or as a study book for a youth group. Read it and discover the plot behind your story!

I, also, thought I was purchasing the complete book. This was a wasted purchase. I am sure the "real" book will be worth the purchase.

I was completely engrossed in this book from start to finish. This is Max Lucado's best book to date. I appreciated each and every story that was shared in the book, and I found myself near tears many times. I think the thing that struck me the most is that the emphasis of the book is that God is there in every single circumstance, and He is guiding you through the hard times. All of us go through struggles. Some of us live a life fraught with struggles. Does that mean that God is not in control? Absolutely not! There was a time I did not like Max Lucado. I used to feel that he did not dig deeply into the wisdom of the Scriptures. I am happy to report that is not longer the case! In recent years, Lucado has delved so deeply into the Word of God, and he always brings encouragement even in the midst of utter chaos. Everything happens for a reason, and everyone is here for a purpose. This is an easy read written in Lucado's fantastically readable style. You will find true encouragement as you surrender your will to the Lord of the universe! This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

This is just a preview. I'm sure the book is great, but this is not the whole book. Don't buy this product thinking it is the whole book. This product is very misleading.

Like all of Max Lucado's books, I really enjoyed reading it. He has a way of making me feel so much closer to the Lord and that is something that we all should be seeking. I recommend this book of everyone interested in seeking a relationship with the Lord.

I am so much of a fiction reader that I often scoff at non fiction and skip it. Reading books like this remind me that there is so much out there to benefit from. I was in sixth or seventh grade when I first experienced something from Max Lucado, but since then when I have seen his name on a book, I knew it would be worth while. And even more recently I have started adding his children books to my shelves for my girls. They are some of my toddler AppleBlossom's favorites. Christian Fiction can open doors and suggestions to topics and make you want to delve further into scriptures mentioned, but it is in the blunt and to the point - down to earth - non fiction writings like this when as a reader one can truly challenge themselves and really delve further. I enjoyed this book and it makes me do a lot of necessary thinking. My only qualm is that although several different scripture translations are used, The Message Bible is used a lot, and I have issues with paraphrase Bibles as I feel like they lose so much in the translation. Yet at the same time, maybe this is a seed to be dropped for some that will help them in their journey along the way. After all that's what matters.

B&N has burned me for what I hope is the last time. If it sounds too good to be true, then it isn't a good deal. I do not have time to review every purchase. I was looking for this particular max lucado ebook . It was the first one that showed up in my search. Its a SAMPLE. I'll get it from the loical library now. Not gonna spend anymore $$ at B&N. I'm embarrassed to admit this has happenec to me several times. My fault for trusting and not being watchful. Misleading and disappointing. No more.
