I just finished It's Not About Me by Max Lucado.  It was excellent.  A really quick read, but really meaningful.  Has anyone else read any of his books?  I have a few more on my TBR pile, and I'm looking forward to them.

I have read quite a few of his books & I agree, quick reads but very well worth it.  I have two favorites by him that I can think of off the top of my head.  The first one is Traveling Light, I read this with my Sunday School class a few years ago & plan to reread it.  The other is Next Door Savior, which I JUST finished.   Both are very well worth your time if you haven't read them yet.  Shayla

I enjoyed In the Grip of Grace. I have quite a few of his books on my TBR but haven't gotten to any of the others yet.

I am reading his book "He Chose The Nails" right now and it is fantastic.  I would highly recommend this book.  It's not that long of a book and it captures your attention right from the start.

I have read many of his books. He has been gifted with a talent in writing about God's word. My 6 year old, loves his children's books. I even subscribe to his devotions by email, there wonderful.

I didn't know he had devotions by e-mail.  Where do you sign up for those?

I loved "Traveling Light".  In fact, I've ordered a couple of copies here and am giving them away to friends.

I've also read "It's Not About Me" and I really love his writing style.

Brenda - I get Max's devotions too - but I'm not sure how I started getting them.  I also get a devotion from Girlsfriends in God that is awesome.  Sometimes I think that they are wired into my home or my computer or even my phone!!!

Also - Come Thirsty by Max is a good one.  A little more involved read then Nails or some of his others but very good.

Hmm, I looked on his website, and saw where I could sign up for weekly devotionals, but no daily devotionals.
