Booksneeze Book Review- Just Like Jesus

Today I am reviewing Just Like Jesus by Max Lucado.  I will be the first to admit I am not a big Lucado fan, in fact it took me several days to read the first 3 pages of this book.  In order to write an honest review I knew it would require me to actually read the book, so I trudged on. Much to my surprise just a few short pages later I found I did not want to lay Just Like Jesus down!  The chapters were short and pretty concise making the 12 chapters a quick read.
I enjoyed the theme of each chapter- A Heart Like His, A Forgiving Heart, A Compassionate Heart………and so on to be both encouraging and thought provoking. Each chapter is filled with plenty of scripture references and everyday practical examples to express the point being made.  It is refreshing to see things in a new light. I appreciated reading Lucado’s description about the celebration in Heaven when a wayward soul repents. I have read that scripture many times but I have never given it much thought. I shared the thoughts of Jesus being kind and showing friendship to Judas at the Last Supper with my son who is 8. He has been struggling with being kind to those who do not treat us well.
I recommend this book to anyone who is striving to be more like our Savior. You will find lots of good, useful information in Just Like Jesus.
This book was provided to me by Thomas Nelson, the publisher, through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~
