      Love how Max Lucado makes God so REAL. One of my favorite chapters was "Why God Smiles" in which Lucado writes "I'm not one who easily envisions a smiling God. A weeping God, yes. An angry God, OK. A might God, you bet. But a chuckling God? . What do I think he was doing when he stretched the neck of the giraffe? An exercise in engineering? What do I think he had in mind when he told the ostrich where to put his head? Spelunking? What do I think he was doing when he designed the mating call of a [...]

      “It does little good to make the trip and miss the journey!”Wow. This was nice. Very, very nice.First off, I'd like to say that Mr. Lucado is a very good author. His descriptions are very well done. Oh. Someone else wants to use this tablet (it's not mine). Will continue this some other time.P.S. Go read this. It's great.Back to the review.Mr. Lucado is a very excellent writer. He is a seasoned chef with a good taste of words.He is also a wise and God-loving man who isn't afraid to share his [...]

      Max Lucado has a gift for finding the eternal in the commonplace. He spots the inspiration in the historic. He can take the divine and make it personal. The thrust of "In The Eye Of The Storm" is to give his readers comfort and direction in times of adversity, especially those times when we are hounded by demands, filled with doubt, or facing failure. To the heart ready receive, the impact of this unrelenting trio dwindles before the prospect of perspective, endurance and choice. This book is de [...]

      I couldn’t finish the book. I was disheartened to read about things of my religion that he equated with prostitution and pornography. I have thought long and hard about writing this. I saw a lot of one and two stars and wondered if they thought the same thing. So I’m hoping my review is understood by other readers. I’ve loved many of his other books so I hope this was simply a one-time issue. I hope someday I can pick up another of his books and not have a sour taste.

    • Sue says:

      The subtitle on this is “A Day in the Life of Jesus” and the focus seems to be how Jesus responded on a day when it would be easy for us to crumble under the pressures and emotions. Jesus’ response: turn to the Father. My struggle with this (not that solution, the book in general) was that it seemed like that was said in the first few chapters and I couldn’t see how the remainder of the book continued to develop that theme.

    • Ashley says:

      This book was given to me as a gift; and although initially I was intimidated I decided - why not? Let me give it a fair shotI read it and my eyes were opened to just how "easy" I had it. Just when I thought I was drowning in a quagmire of problems, and challenges - I see that what I can't "seem to bear" is completely doable! It was a book that I hold dear to my heart & am eternally grateful to my friendwho I will always hold in a special place in my heart.

    • Lawrence says:

      This book has been very inspirational for me in dealing with the storm that's going on in my life right now. My storm is nothing compared to what Jesus went through on the road to the cross.

    • Perssis Namour says:

      Max Lucado knocks hits another gram slam out of the park! There are some people when you meet them for the first time they make you feel so comfortable like they are your best friend. They befriend you quickly as they open up about themselves showing you the raw side of their dysfunctional life or of their practically perfect life, regardless you now know they will be a life long friend. "Max is a writer who preaches or a preacher who writes" as it says on the inside jacket of the book and that [...]

    • Doug says:

      I'm not sure what I expected to read in Max Lucado's books; maybe a retelling of Bible stories that I grew up with as a child, maybe a book of life lessons. What I got was both; and it was neither. His story telling makes these verses cope to life like they never did for me as a kid. His insights of the Biblical passages don't lay on the guilt, but they do reflect the love. I feel like Im talking and listening to a friend one on one when I read his books. i also feel like there's a third Person [...]

    • Amanda says:

      It started out so promising, but after a few chapters I just could not figure out where Max was going with the rest of it. I didn't see how these little stories had anything to do with how Jesus handled that very difficult day, nor did I glean any advice for how I might do the same. I closed the book feeling confused. It might've worked better as a devotional with different topics than one cohesive lesson. It seemed like Max went on a bit of a tangent and just had so many things to say.

    • Dee says:

      Max Lucado is a gifted writer. He pulls you in instantly with his descriptive and inspiring words. I am left feeling closer to the Lord because of his bones-deep understanding of the Gospel. He has a way of making the Bible come to life. Jesus really does understand, literally, how we feel when we are going through a hard trial! If you are going through something really tough right now, I highly recommend this book!

    • Jenna says:

      I have been searching for some sort of technology based book to work through each morning during my devotionals. I've heard of Max Lucado many times, but haven't picked up a book of his before. I was very impressed with this particular book because each chapter had something new. It gave me a new perspective on the incredible God I serve.

    • Ione says:

      I’ve read a couple of Max Lucado’s books and have enjoyed them. I typically do not care for this genre of books but this author has a way of telling a story about a very human Jesus while avoiding the typical “bible-thumping” and fear-based approach many preachers feel the need to use. Religion might not leave such a bad taste if more preachers used this approach.

    • Rudy Gutierrez says:

      The first half of the book was excellent! I was moved, cried, reflected, I was engaged with every word. Sadly the 2nd half was not as profound. There were very good sections and some which lost my attention altogether. Overall, a good read and if you've gone through some stuff like I have it is therapeutic.

    • Deborah says:

      VERY repetitive, but the points he makes are good ones

    • Randy A says:

      Makes you think!

    • Kaaren Mikus says:

      I loved this. I was given this book after surviving a pair of very traumatic experiences. It is a wonderful and inspiring read, that has helped me on my path to healing. I anticipate that I will be opening the cover again, and again

    • Kacey says:

      Admittedly I've never read any of Max's longer books. The one I know best is his children's story about the puppet and the woodcarver. But I was taking a Bible study where the teacher mentioned him and I wanted to check out the book in question. And just like with everything that I encounter in my walk with God, I read this book at the perfect time for it to speak to me.Stress is just a part of life; we can't get away from it. How encouraging, then, to know that Jesus experienced stress as well. [...]

    • Megan Boldizsar says:

      This was an inspiring book. I read it when my mom (who is only 54) became very suddenly and critically ill. She's a very devout Christian and I couldn't help but wonder why this was happening to her. I read this book for comfort and to gain some perspective, and I believe reading it accomplished both goals. I recommend this book to anyone who is experiencing a major struggle in their life! Oh, and by the way After 3 weeks in the ICU, a major high-risk surgery, and a total of 2 months of hospital [...]

    • Victoria Green says:

      Max, the great story teller,once again profoundly moved my heart from it's frequent flying trips into fear- to a place of peace. Like most his books it was read in two days. What I like the most and have been brought to see through all my illness's/issuesat the STORM was His direct path for me. In all my doubt's and running off at the second I see something on the horizon Max reminded me that all of our issues and all of our fears are reall little invites to run and hide and trust into the Maste [...]

    • Charles Thornton says:

      This is one of my all time favorite books. I quote from it often. I find the earlier Max Lucado books like this one to be his most inspiring. Each chapter is short and self contained so it is one of those books you can pick up and read a while, put down and get back to it later and not have to try to reconnect the dots. My kind of reading.Lucado's books are inspiring and light and not for the intellectual looking to dig into deep truths or principles. Probably another reason why they appeal to m [...]

    • Stephy Jemmisparks says:

      This is the book that the VERY book that first gave me any hope. I was feeling sentenced to a life of being forsaken, when I found this book, and read about God's loveThis book, is that book that joined my first hopes that life could be better and without it I would have never made it to today.The love and grace of God was something I did not had to taste, as of yet then. now My heart quivers with deep compassion at the fear of rejected outcasts.Read this book !!!I thank Max for this book.

    • Bonita says:

      As Max Lucado delves into a single day in the life of Christ, he explores how Jesus used a "tapestry of turmoil" and transformed it. Into multitudes being fed. Into the hurt and diseased being healed and comforted. Into Peter stepping out of a storm-pitched boat and walking on water. All reminders that "when all hell breaks loose, all heaven draws near." That Jesus is with us in the eye of every storm.

    • Aimee Shaffer says:

      This is the perfect book for anyone going through or who will go through (aka everyone) a storm in life. Lucado's down to earth writing and heart for God shine through in an encouraging way in this book.

    • Sherrill Wallace says:

      Has your life ever gone from calm to chaos in a short while? Mine has. This book was given to me by my sister at a time my life was changed by a doctor's visit to my hospital room. A Christiam perspective on how to handle a dilemma in one's life.

    • Craig says:

      Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Had a lot of good thoughts and ideas to ponder. Really helps one to appreciate the imminence of Christ finding how God is talking to you during the times you don't see it.

    • Janet says:

      I really got a lot from this book. I would really recommend this to anyone who is looking for guidance from our heavenly father. The study guide was easy to follow it also gave me lots to think about! Go Max!

    • Shelley says:

      I really like Max's storytelling and how he relates so many profound points through the use of stories. I enjoyed reading the book and it was a fairly quick read! It's the kind of book to keep on your bookshelf and pull out for a quick reminder when you find yourself "In the Eye of the Storm".

    • Julie says:

      Whoever you are, wherever you are - I hope this book finds you when you are ready to read it. My grandmother once told me that good books have a way of finding us when they are meant to, and this one found me at the perfect time. What a blessing!!

    • Dj Wells says:

      Christ in His last day on earth. His loss of friends the stress of what was to come and the weight of our sins all crashing down on Him. But He is faithful to His Father's will and goes the length and achieves victory.
