About The Gift for All People

A New View on the Old Rugged Cross
 
 
Are peace, joy, and significance on your wish list?  How about redemption, forgiveness, the salvation of your soul?  Each of these descriptors bring us to the main event:  grace.  Saving grace, God’s immeasurable gift intended for all.  Regardless of accomplishments or station in life, despite sins of the past, anyone can receive the free gift of grace.
Yet too often we take God’s incomparable gift for granted—despite the fact that God’s very Son paid for it with his body, breath, and blood. Understandably, we often find ourselves caught up in the daily routine of life, not taking time to reflect on the enormity of God’s mercy.
So here’s a suggestion:  give yourself the gift of a few moments spent in the world of God’s grace.  Read pastor Max Lucado’s unique, stirring insights into God’s role as grace-giver. Spend some time reflecting on the gift of grace, in all its magnificent meaning. 
Let grace, the gift for all people, speak to you personally through these pages.
 
 

For All People—Even You
 
God loves you more than you can imagine.
 
Is that hard to believe?   Many of us consider ourselves unworthy due to past sins and mistakes, wrong turns and missteps.,
But God’s gift of grace is limitless.  Though we are undeserving, he offers grace.  Though we are weak in our faith, he extends strength through grace. God’s endless grace is a free gift.  It cannot be earned. 
No matter who you are or what you’ve done, the all-powerful God waits for you to choose him, to choose life in his presence—here and in heaven.
 
 
 “[God] simply wants you home with him. And to bring you home, he offers you a gift. My prayer is that through these pages you’ll see his gift like you’ve never seen it. If you’ve already accepted it, you’ll thank him again. And if you’ve never accepted it, you will. For it’s the gift of a lifetime, a gift for all people.”
 
—Max Lucado

Max Lucado, one of America’s most cherished Christian authors, shares more than 30 of his most inspirational essays in The Gift for All People: Thoughts on God’s Great Grace (Multnomah Books, February 16, 2016).
 
In his signature style, Lucado invites readers into the Father’s arms. As he says, “He’s waiting for you. God is standing on the porch of heaven, expectantly hoping, searching the horizon for a glimpse of his child. You’re the one God is seeking.”
 
Originally released in 1999, this unique, warm, and attractive presentation of the Gospel has been enjoyed by more than 400,000 readers.
 
This beautiful hardcover edition—perfect for gift-giving during Lent and Easter—offers comfort and hope and will help Christians treasure the assurance of their salvation. Lucado also helps non-Christians understand and embrace the gift of salvation and has written the concluding story specifically for them.
 
“More than anything, God wants you to be with Him. The God who designed your world, the God who placed you on the planet, simply wants you home with Him. And to bring you home, He offers you a gift…the gift of eternal salvation,” says Lucado. “My prayer is through the pages of this book, you’ll see his gift like you’ve never seen it. If you’ve already accepted it, you’ll thank Him again. And if you’ve never accepted it, I pray you will. For it’s the gift of a lifetime. A gift for all people.”

 The subtitle of this book is "Thoughts on God's Great Grace", and that is what the book is about. The chapters are short, only going two or three pages, all on different aspects of Jesus coming and dying for us. Though it is not advertised as such, it would make a great devotional the way it is set up. As with all of Max's books, the pages are interspersed with personal stories and anecdotes to get his point across. It is an interesting and...
