God Came Near Chronicles of the Christ Author:Max Lucado Majesty in the midst of the Mundane. He looks like anything but a king. His face is prunish red. His cry, though strong and healthy, is still the helpless and piercing cry of a baby. He is absolutely dependent upon Mary for his well being. Holiness in the filth of sheep manure and sweat.

God had come near!Travel back in time and relive Christ the Son of God becoming man. In this stunning work, Max Lucado views the Savior who walked among us through a distinctly human lens. He speaks plainly to those of us who prefer to keep Jesus otherworldly, distant, and predictable: "Don't do it. For heaven's sake, don't. Let Him into the mire and muck of our world. For only if we let him in can he pull us out." Through vivid word pictures, come with Max as he brings to life the most important event in history . . . when God Came Near.

This book is amazing; it was the first book I was given as a new believer in Christ and I found it so thought provoking and inspirational. You will "see" Jesus in a way you never have before- and maybe for the first time. I highly recommend this book.
Max Lucado reminds us that Jesus was no run-of-the-mill messiah. His was the most remarkable life to ever stir the dust of humanity. In this book you'll smell the sawdust of the carpentry shop. Jesus will evolve from a wavy figure walking out of a desert mirage into the touchable face of a best friend. You will whisper, "I see Jesus."
God desires more for you than a second-hand faith. He wants you to see him for yourself. To be touched by his glory. To witness his majesty. To know him as Friend. Once you ahve caught a glimpse of his majesty, you will never be the same.
Written in a true Max Lucado style which entertains and inspires.
