Review – “For these Tough Times”

I recently finished reviewing “For these tough times – reaching toward heaven for hope & healing” by Max Lucado…and was pleasantly surprised. When the book showed up in the mail, I was shocked at how small it was…only 79 pages, large font, and a very small nearly pocket-sized book. However Max packs a lot into this very small book that will provide insight and healing for those reading it. He answers such profound questions such as “Where is God?” “How can He allow good things to happen to bad people?”, and “Why should I have hope?” On page 2 of the book, in the introduction, he writes:

“God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, nor are they even like ours. We aren’t even in the same neighborhood. We’re thinking, Preserve the body; he’s thinking, Save the soul…’I'm going to live before I die,’ we resolve. ‘Die so you can live,’ he instructs. We love what rusts. He loves what endures. We rejoice at our successes. He rejoices at our confessions. We show our children the Nike star with the million-dollar smile and say, ‘Be like Mike.’ God points to the crucified carpenter with bloody lips and a torn side and says, ‘Be like Christ.’”

Although this book is definitely a short, quick read, and could be longer, it packs a large punch for it’s size. It is well worth the read, but make sure you read it with an open heart to whatever God might be saying to you through it.
