His Name is Jesus - Book Review

His Name is Jesus
The Promise of God's Love Fulfilled
By Max Lucado

Book Description

Max Lucado's first book that journeys from the birth of Christ to His resurrection.

Drawing from his classic writing on Jesus combined with new reflections and breathtaking art, Max Lucado again opens our eyes—and hearts—to the life and work of the Savior in a way that will change lives forever. “Jesus was, at once, common and not; alternately normal and heroic. One minute blending in with the domino players in the park, the next commanding the hell out of madmen, disease out of the dying, and death out of the dead.” Who was this man who spoke as easily with kids and fishermen as widows and waves? It is the question that has echoed down through the centuries to us today, and here is a visually stunning book that answers aspects of that question.

My review:

I'm not sure what more I can add to the description from the publisher. This is a beautifully crafted and designed book. I enjoyed reading bits and pieces of Max Lucado's books as they relate to the life of Jesus. The pictures were well crafted and related well to the written word. This would be a great book to give as a gift to someone who has everything; someone who loves books; someone who loves Jesus; someone who needs to know Jesus; in other words - anyone.

This is a wonderful addition to any Christian library. People of all ages will enjoy it. I recommend it for anyone.
