Item description for God Came Near (Bestseller Collection) by Max Lucado...

Overview
Majesty in the midst of the Mundane. He looks like anything but a king. His face is prunish red. His cry, though strong and healthy, is still the helpless and piercing cry of a baby. He is absolutely dependent upon Mary for his well-being.

Holiness in the filth of sheep manure and sweat. Divinity entering the world on the floor of a stable, through the womb of a teenager, and in the presence of a mere carpenter. God had come near! Travel back in time and relive Christ the Son of God becoming man.

In this stunning work, Max Lucado views the Savior who walked among us through a distinctly human lens. He speaks plainly to those of us who prefer to keep Jesus otherworldly, distant, and predictable: "Don't do it. For heaven's sake, don't. Let Him into the mire and muck of our world. For only if we let him in can he pull us out." Through vivid word pictures, come with Max as he brings to life the most important event in history?when God Came Near.

Reviews - What do customers think about God Came Near (Bestseller Collection)?

Exceptional View of Jesus and the Humanity of the Divine  Feb 18, 2008
An exceptional presentation of Jesus, the man, the human being, all the while maintaining his divinity.

The first part of the book excels in helping the reader appreciate the humanity of the Divine. The second part gets a little "preachy," but the value of the first part far outweighs any shortcomings the briefer second part may have...

A truly outstanding piece of work...highly recommended...the first part (most of the book) is Lucado at his best, and that is good...very, very good.
 
Power in Weakness  Jun 6, 2007
God Came Near is another powerful book written by Max Lucado. In his typical, easy to read, almost story book manner, Lucado takes great points of theology and makes them so simple anyone can grasp the meaning and power.

God Came Near makes the reality of Jesus humanness and time on earth easy to grasp. Lucado explains his purpose for the book in the introduction (pg 17):


My prayer for this book--without apologies-- is that the Divine Surgeon will use it as a delicate surgical tool to restore sight. That blurriness will be focused and darkness dispersed. [Here it comes...] That the Christ will emerge from a wavy figure walking out of a desert mirage to become the touchable face of a best friend. That we will lay our faces at the pierced feet and join Thomas in proclaiming, "My Lord and my God." And, most supremely, that we will whisper the secret of the universe, "We were eyewitnesses of his majesty."


I would submit that he accomplishes his goal throughout the book. Divided into two main sections entitled "His Incarnation" and "Our Imitation" Lucado uses 31 chapters or more appropriately 31 short stories to talk about Jesus's life on earth and then how we should imitate His life.

The book begins and ends with this simple definition of Christianity:


Christianity, in its purest form, is nothing more than seeing Jesus. Christian service, in its purest form, is nothing more than imitating him who we see. To see His Majesty and to imitate him, that is the sum of Christianity.


One more quote to illustrate the simplicity of Lucado's writing style and one of many everyday examples he uses to paint a picture of the Majesty of God is found on pg 84:


We wonder, with so many miraculous testimonies around us, how we could escape God. But somehow we do. We live in an art gallery of divine creativity and yet we are content to gaze only at the carpet.


As with many of Lucado's books, God Came Near includes a study guide section which can be used for individual devotion or group discussion to help deepen the impact of his inspired writings. With an openness to the power of the Holy Spirit in your life, this book can reshape your views about God, Jesus, and ultimately, the power He contains!
 
Great bathroom book  Feb 18, 2007
This book is primarily short stories about our Savior. Lucado is far from a Theologian, but in this book he is able to present a different view of the humanity of Christ. This book is important for better understanding Christ.
 
God Came Near  Jan 11, 2007
Our church study group picked this book and have really enjoyed it so far. The book is not a study book so to speak. It's designed more to make you think and feel about what your reading. I've found myself asking myself some deeply spiritual questions, and I've found myself inspired to write lines of poetry. We're only four chapters through the book, but I'm looking forward to the experience each wiik and sharing what the Spirit has revealed to my heart through Max Lucado's words.
 
Wonderful Book!  Jan 11, 2007
I was given this book after purchasing our family Christmas tree at our church, after reading it, it had such a positive impact on me, I purchased five to give as gifts to several members of my family. Max Lucado is such a gifted writer and this book is no exception. His insights into the Christian walk are truly amazing!
