Max Lucado has a talent. He is able to take stories, lessons, guidance, etc. from the Bible and turn it into easily understandable bites. His latest book, Unshakable Hope, is not different. In fact, the book I'm reviewing is the Student Edition of Unshakable Hope, so Lucado has taken his ideas and presented them in a format that is perfect for 8-12 year olds (teens would probably enjoy this as well). Unshakable Hope is based around the promises of God as recorded in the Bible, and Lucado excels at explaining them.
Unshakable Hope has 30 chapters (this makes for a perfect month-long devotional book study). Each chapter follows a similar structure. The chapter begins with a verse containing a promise, which compliments the title. Titles include: God Keeps His Promises; You Can Know God; God Takes Care of You; Jesus Calms Your Storms; Hope is the Anchor of Your Soul; and more. Next in each chapter is a two-page devotional explaining the promise for that particular chapter. Then there are multiple Bible verses that support the promise. After those, there are a handful of discussion questions, perfect for self-reflection or group study. Finally, there is a "My Promise to God" section, where the reader can commit to believing the promise of the chapter.
This is a great book and it is perfect for pre-teens and teens. The topics are timely and applicable, and Lucado makes the ideas easy to digest and understand. With each chapter designed to stand alone, this is a great book for a book study, or as an individual devotional book.
I have read quite a few Max Lucado books, and have enjoyed and learned from them all. Unshakable Hope (Student Edition) is just the latest in a long line of wonderful books designed to help readers draw nearer to and deepen their relationship with God. I would highly recommend this book.
I received a review copy of this book from the BookLook Bloggers program in exchange for an honest review.
