Max Lucado never disappoints. In his book, No Wonder They Call Him the Savior: Experiencing the Truth of the Cross, Lucado looks at three parts of the Cross. Part 1 of the Cross is about It's words, Part 2 of the Cross is about It's witnesses, and Part 3 of the Cross is about It's wisdom. Each chapter was to the point which is something I love about Max Lucado's writing. He gives you just enough to think about and when he has said what he needed to say, he moves on. Some authors that I have read on Spiritual Growth and Christian thought tend to drag on each chapter to the point that I have wanted to skip the rest of it. "I get the message" is something I want to say, but never with Lucado. Each chapter brings me in to the wisdom and insight he has gained through his ministry as a missionary, a pastor, and as an author. It is hard to pick out one part of this book that stuck out to me. This is one that I intend to read over and over as it takes such a profound look at the Cross and our Lord and Savior. I am in awe of what the Lord has done for me, someone who is undeserving of His Grace, yet, he took that long walk and died the death that was mine. All I can say is "No wonder they call Him the Savior!"

Max Lucado did an excellent job on this book! It consists of a series of short stories that helps the reader to better understand who God is. Lucado presents his material well and displays a knowledge of the Bible that he clearly portrays to his audience. Each chapter is a compilation of different stories that he uses in order to get his readers to think about what is being told. Lucado's purpose is to get people to think. He helps the reader to better understand God in a way that is personal and memorable. Lucado always seems to excel in these areas and he did not disappoint in this book either. I would recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to grow more spiritually.

This book reminds me of a Snuggie. You slip your arms into the sleeves and let the love wrap around you to ward off the chill of anger and unforgivness. It's written in typical Max Lucado style-the master story teller telling the tale of the cross in a language we can all understand. While I didn't care for the gun comment on page 12 because it smelled political, the rest of the book won me with its rich descriptions and warmth. I give this book four stars. It's not very deep or complicated. It has a great study guide in the rear of the book. I would consider this book perfect for an unbeliever. It delves into the question of what part really matters, and yet also talks about what a relationship with Christ looks like. It's not wishy-washy and it doesn't glaze over truth. Like a snuggie, Christ's love covers sin and wraps us in the truth. Book given by publisher to review.

Max Lucado is one of my favorite authors and with this book that is no exception.In his own unique style of writing, the author takes you on a vivid journey of discovery as you see the Cross, and the characters who "surround" it, from a new light. No other book I have ever read connected me emotionally to Jesus the way "No Wonder They Call Him Savior" did. Max Lucado is really writing to people who have broken hearts and who can find a lonely person simply by looking in the mirror. The land of promise is for those who endure the pain and suffering and are reborn.All who are Christians, and those who simply desire to know more of the Christian religion, should give serious consideration to reading this book. You'll be glad you did.

This book is powerful. I found it poetic, beautifully written. You can pick it up, read a section, and come back later. There's a beautiful coffee-table version of this book, but I don't see it here.

Wonderful read, gives good insight on what Jesus thought and feelings could've been like during his time and askes us the question. Have you ever felt like that. The what would Jesus do question I sometimes ask myself when faced with adversity. It also has a great Study guide.

No Wonder They Call Him The Savior By Max Lucado You can never go worng with Lucado; every book is packed full of inspiration and hope and of how every day people are far more special than we realize. Hope can be found in the most unlikely of places and that is the focus of this book. Look out and up and down and inside; hope is everywhere because of Jesus. If you are in need of a little inspiration or if your hope meter is a bit low give Max a try; this is a great book and would make a groovy Christmas present!!!

I have read other book by Max Lucado and really liked them but this was not one of those. I had a hard time getting into it so was not eager to finish it. I was disappointed. I did stop and think about What Counts? What Really Matters? I'm not sure that it was actually the cross but rather the fact that He willingly died for me and arose again on the 3rd day and I'm not sure if it mattered whether it was on a cross or not. I received this book free from Booksneeze to read and review. The opinions expressed are my own.

No Wonder They Call Him the Savior: Experiencing the Truth of the Cross By Max Lucado is among the most uplifting books that I have recently read. In true Lucado fashion, Max writes in an animated, easy to understand style that communicates biblical truths to the reader. His books bring bible stories and biblical truth to life in an inspirational way that speaks out to the reader. "Catch God in a bad mood? Won't happen. Fear exhausting his grace? A sardine will swallow the Atlantic first. Think he's given up on you?" ..... Lucado's use of colorful language and his conversational tone, make it so that biblical truths are memorable and meaningful to the average modern reader. You need not be a theologen, educated in an expensive seminary or college to understand Max Lucado's books. This inspirational book will be certain to leave the reader with a lasting impression. In today's self centered society, without offense Max Lucado illustrates the importance of living life based on biblical principles. Lucado illustrates with clarity the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. In vivid detail, he makes clear, in everday words and language, the significance of Jesus' life and death for us. After reading this book, and really meditating on the biblical truths communicated via Max Lucado, one can feel a renewed sense of embpowerment to live a selfless life style. Max makes use of personal anecdotes as well as bible stories to illiustrate the importance of depending on God rather than on the material things of this world. If you are a theologen, looking for an apologetic defense on the purpose of depending on God then this book isn't for you. But, if on the other hand you are simply looking for bible based motivation and a relief in a world that takes pride in materialism, selfish ambition and competition, then this book is perfect. As a blogger for booksneeze, I receive books from Thomas Nelson publishers in exchange for writing an honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

This book gives a whole new outlook on the inspiring story of our Savior Jesus Christ. Max Lucado does a fine job answering the question, what really matters. Out of everything that we are told about religion, out of everything we believe what is the most important thing there is. At the beginning you are puzzled as to what single object or belief could hold so much power. This book gives a unique eyewitness and testimony to the sacrifice that Jesus made and tells and affirms the reason why he is called our Savior.

This book is supposed to be about finding hope in Christ's sacrifice on the cross. If you are already familiar with the writings of Max Lucado, you will probably enjoy this book. If you enjoy devotionals or books that make you feel emotionally warm and are light reading, you will also probably like this book. But if you enjoy using your brain, want something deep and profound, this book is not for you. Prologue: The question is presented: "Forget the Christian religion - tell me what really matters." Lucado answers the seeker with a quote from 1 Corinthians 15: "For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures. That he was buried, that he was raised o the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve." Lucado tells us that no one can ignore the cross. However, I feel like millions ignore it, every single day, so I'm not convinced and Lucado's words mean nothing to me. Each following chapter is a disjointed story that has nothing to do with the next chapter and not all that much to do with Christianity. I found this book pretty shallow. The main points can be summarized in one or two sentences, like "It's much easier to die like Jesus if you have lived like him for a lifetime." Not really all that profound, but this was the very best sentence in all of Chapter 1. Most of Lucado's writings are unemotional, untouching, not life-changing, not profound in any way, and sometimes just plain disagreeable. Example: "What kind of people mock a dying man?" Well... the majority of people mock based on their anger. Most people become angry when they hear about someone on death row - they just assume the person is a "bad person" and did "bad things", so they say "good" to his/her death. Disclaimer: I gave my honest review. I received this book from the publisher but a positive review was not required.
