Item description for Come Thirsty: No Heart Too Dry for His Touch (Lucado, Max) by Max Lucado...
Overview Are you a dry sponge? Edgy and rigid? Ineffective? Would you like to be softened up some? Would you like to be more useful in the hands of the One who made you? Then come to the well, says Max Lucado. Scientists assure us that humans can't live without water, and we don't even attempt it. But survival without God? Oh, we sip, we taste, but we're prone to go extended times without a good drink from the well of the Lord. And we pay the price for doing so. We shrink. We coil and re-coil against the world... organs harden... hearts harden. In this renewing and life-giving book, Max Lucado, leads us to the four essential nutrients needed by every soul. Come to the cross and know that your sins are pardoned and your death is defeated. Receive Christ's energy and believe that you can do all things through the one who gives you strength. Receive his Lordship, knowing that you belong to him and that He looks out for you. Receive his love and feel confident that nothing can separate you from it. Come, with Max, to the WELL... to Christ's Work on the cross, his energy, his Lordship and his Love.

Excellent book! Mar 12, 2007
Max Lucado has done it again. This is a quick, but deep read. Goes right to the heart.
Truly encouraging Jun 4, 2006
If you have been burned by religious folk who are not "merciful to those who doubt," (Jude 22) you will find a special mixture of safety, truth, and encouragement in Come Thirsty. What makes Max Lucado so special is his ability to speak to ordinary people as well as understand spiritually broken hearts and gently lead them back into the fold of God's love. The grace in Lucado's tone does as much to assure the heart of God's grace as does the strong biblical roots of his message, and his real world illustrations help show how the biblical truth of God's goodness is so relevant to everyday life and not just merely an abstract doctrine.
Like a drink of water: not heavy, but refreshing Dec 31, 2005
Lucado's splash of living water for thirsty souls is much like the water he uses as an image: not heavy, but refreshing. By "not heavy," I mean that in typical Lucado fashion, this is light reading, not heavy or deep theology (although his summary on the Bible's teaching on angels on pages 108-114 is well-researched). On the other hand, like water, the book is refreshing and encouraging. Lucado uses the acronym W-E-L-L to stand for receiving the living water offered by Jesus in three ways: receiving Christ's WORK on the cross, the ENERGY of the filling of the Holy Spirit, the LORDSHIP of Jesus, and the LOVE of Christ. He then elaborates on each of these points in his engaging style of fascinating and humorous illustrations and creative turns of phrases. My favorite quote is on page 92: "Denying the sovereignty of God requires busy scissors and results in a hole-y Bible." Lucado has a strong ending to the book, with a collection of Biblical quotes (indexed in the back if you care to look them all up) as a "love letter from God," summarizing the teaching of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed his book. Many times I caught myself muttering as I read, "I wish I had said that," and I probably will! (By the way, the artistic depection of splashing water on the cover is so real I keep wanting to get a dry cloth and wipe it off.)
You can't go wrong with Max Sep 16, 2005
Is there any better way to compliment study or prayer time with a little Max Lucado. In a world which we must live with our antennas up and dealing with sin and heresy -- even in our own lives and our own churches -- the writings of Max Lucado always calm the soul and refresh the spirit. He can tell why the Bible says not to sin in a way that's not abrasive and hypocritcal, yet confrontational. He can write about the Holy Spirit in a way that accentuates the love of God, yet contains discernment of the sweaty TV evangelists who tear apart believers. He explains stories and life experiences in a manner that connects us directly with God.
The most compelling issue: how Max writes about faith in God. The last chapters are the most memorable for me. He writes of the promises of our eternal security in Christ, according to Romans 8:38. Indeed, nothing can separate us from God's love, and Lucado's "Come Thirsty" is just another one of his simple yet strong reads that brings every Christian that reads it closer to God.
Pour me a glass, please! Apr 28, 2005
Mr. Lucado continues to write on spiritual truths in a way that makes them easy to understand and relevant to everyday life. "Come Thirsty" is no exception and a must read for all Lucado fans. Also would make a great gift for anyone who feels they are too far from God and undeserving of His grace.
