Another great Moment With Max Feb 13, 2007
What a delightful read. I'm already a huge Lucado fan but really enjoyed this book because I spend every morning at a coffee shop reading. I felt like I was sharing my coffee time with Max. How do you like yours, Max: sugar or cream?
Max's Maxims Make for Marvelous Mocha! Dec 25, 2006
As a family, we are currently reading and discussing Lucado's essays on "Next Door Savior." These brief essays are so poignant and powerful, and have shed so many fresh insights on our Lord and Savior, that I just had to complement those readings with this pithy work of art.
Lucado is a wordsmith, pure and simple. Other than our own beloved pastor, who recently retired after 22 years of faithful service, I have never encountered another such finely-tuned articulator of truths. He takes the seemingly mundane and ordinary, gives it his own spin, and in so doing presents information in such fresh and enticing ways!
In "Mocha with Max," what you'll read are excerpts from some of his previous works, from "The Applause of Heaven" (1990) to "Come Thirsty" (2004). He weaves these excerpts expertly and seamlessly, and then collates them into eleven thematic chapters, among them Hope, Life, God's Eternal Plan, and Faith. Above all, the text comforts us during our inevitable trials, challenges our cycles of complacency, and wipes the tears from our collective sorrows.
Truly a wonderful read. In fact, you'll be hard-pressed to put this book down, and once you dedicate an afternoon to its insights, you'll be a recharged and more positive child of God.

My mom bought this book for me as a 2-year sobriety birthday gift. I could not put it down. I wrote many of the scriptures and quotes up on my chalk board as a daily reminder of how "great" GOD is!! I have since purchased it and have given it out as gifts. Just Wonderful, thanks Max!
Comfortable reading for you and friends Dec 5, 2005
I picked this up to read in a local coffee shop and had trouble putting it down. The short writings by Max Lucado share a piece of the human soul with skill and warmth. I've purchased several copies to give as gifts with tea, cocoa or coffee. I can see my friends getting cozy with this book and a "cupa" whatever, to warm their spirit.
It touched my heart. Jul 10, 2005
I couldn't put this book down. Not matter how I tried. It is a great short story and easy to read even for someone who doesn't like to read.
The story touches your heart and reminds us how simple little encounters with people everyday affect our lives. It show how God touches every part of our lives.
Reading this book has gotten me to read other Max Lucado books.
