Reviews - What do customers think about Cast Of Characters?
Great book Dec 28, 2009
This isn't just a great book for Christians. Anyone should be able to appreciate these comparisons made between today's world and the days of the Bible. This author definitely made me start looking at my own life in a new light. I'll never see the world or the Bible in the same way after reading this.
Not Very Deep Dec 8, 2009
This is the third Max Lucado book I have been gifted with. I read The Applause of Heaven a few years ago, and we own a few of the children's books Lucado has written. Cast of Characters was released last fall and contains portions of his previous writings. Lucado takes a brief look at a few dozen different men and women of God. It was simple enough that I was able to read parts of the book to my then six year old. Lucado has quite an imagination, and the creative writer in him takes some major liberties as he tells the stories of the people of the Bible.
Cast of Characters: Common People in the Hands of an Uncommon God by Max Lucado Sep 23, 2009
Excellent book -- Max ties biblical characters and their stories to today's world in a way only Max Lucado can do it. Good, easy read!
Cast of Characters by Max Lucado Sep 23, 2009
Very enjoyble easy reading and inspiring at the same time. Max Lucado uses scripture characters and translates them into everyday people. It makes one realize that the people of the scriptures are in many ways just like us.
Cast of Characters / Lucado Jul 16, 2009
A good basis for a summer adult Sunday School study... Max Lucado comes through again with thought provoking views of biblical characters in a contemporary frame.
