Book Review - Cast of Characters

About the Book
Some of the most powerful stories from the Bible will come alive for today’s readers through these inspiring selections from the writings of Max Lucado. Max provides a compelling look at the most high-impact moments in the biblical narrative, drawn from his previous 20+ years of writing.

At the end of each chapter will be study guide questions so the reader can go deeper into this

Extraordinary stories are told about the following characters:
Mary, Peter, Matthew, Joseph, Nicodemus, Woman at the Well, David, Esther, Job, The Samaritan Woman, John, Rich Young Man.

My Take on The Book
I have read many books that talk about spirituality and the characters that you find within the Bible itself, but this book is one of the first that really drew me into the book as this book did. The author did a commendable job at getting his readers to know and understand some of the known and not so know characters within the bible.

What would the Samaritan woman be thinking as Jesus approached her? Why would Moses listen to God's voice? Max Lucado takes classic Bible stories and adds his own touch, his own story to the mix and also adds historical detail in the context of what you read.

I loved this book and believe that you would to. While this book could easily be used for bible study, you also will gain a lot of insights into your own understanding of the Bible and its' characters by reading this as well. Each chapter is easy to read and engaging. They draw you in and encouraging you to read even more of the stories, expanding your own knowledge of the Bible itself.

If this book sounds like something you would like in your own library you can find it over at Amazon!
