Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Now by Max Lucado - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review



Are you stuck in the wilderness known as midlife misery? Can you name the day you became a Christian but can’t remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer? Find encouragement in Max Lucado's new book, Glory Days.

With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance.





















About the book:

Glory Days

(Thomas Nelson, September 2015)

The wilderness. Maybe you know it well.

The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck.

Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same?

You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can't remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer. You're fighting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You're out of Egypt, but Egypt's not out of you.

Isn't the Christian life supposed to be better than this?

Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.

But there's good news. With God's help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance.

This is God's vision for your life. You, at full throttle. You, as you were intended. You, as victor over the Jerichos and giants. You, minus the stumbles, hurts, and hate.

You and your Promised Land life.

My Thoughts:
 
I have always enjoyed Max Lucado's writing style - he really talks to the normal, everyday person in normal, everyday language that is easy to understand and easy to apply to your life. In his latest book, "Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Now," follows the Biblical book of Joshua as he gives his readers a plan for living out God's promises in their lives today.
 
Joshua faced his Jericho and overcame the great odds against him to bring his people to the Promised Land - and today's Christian's can overcome their odds and hardships to find their own promised land through acceptance and forgiveness. Lucado lays out the verses in a logical and uplifting manner, using personal stories along the way to emphasize how God's plan can work in everyone's life. He also includes thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter that give the reader a chance to ponder on what they have just read.
 
I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs reassurance in their lives.
