In God Came Near, Max Lucado reminds us of the awesome realities of Christ. From the arrival of Jesus, to the heart of Mary, to soaking up “eternal instants,” to the cross – Lucado weaves personal stories together with the gospel in this touching portrait of God’s love. This is a book not to be missed.
One of my favorite quotes:
You see, if God is God anywhere, he has to be God in the face of death. Pop psychology can deal with depression. Pep talks can deal with pessimism. Prosperity can handle hunger. But only God can deal with our ultimate dilemma—death. And only the God of the Bible has dared to stand on the canyon’s edge and offer an answer. He has to be God in the face of death. If not, he is not God anywhere.
