Glory Days by Max Lucado

God has a Promised Land for you to claim.

Maybe you're feeling a little stuck. Caught in a rut. You're fighting the same battles and facing the same temptations. You're wondering, is this as good as the Christian life gets?

There's good news. You were made for more. You were made for Glory Days.

In God's plan, in God's land, you win more often than you lose, forgive as quickly as you are offended, and give as abundantly as you receive. You may stumble, but you will not collapse. You may struggle, but you'll defy despair. You will enjoy abundant fruit and increasing faith.

With God's help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be.

These days are Glory Days.
Your past is past,
your future is bright,
God's promises are true and
his Word is sure.
With God as your helper,
you will be all he wants you to be,
do all he wants you to do,
and receive all he wants you to receive.
These days are Glory Days.

My review:
  I have not read every book Max Lucado has written, but I have read several of his over the years. This has got to be the best book for adults he has written. I was telling a friend about it, and as I was describing it I realized I was making it sound like a prosperity book....which it is not.

  Lucado focuses on Joshua and the children of Israel as they enter the promised land and take Jericho and other cities. He makes the point that these were the best days of Israel - their glory days, and that just like them, we can also have our glory days.

  Going through the book of Joshua, Lucado takes lessons from their victories and failures and applies them to our lives. He points out that we have walls of doubt and fear and most of us are not living our full potential as a Christian. I found myself convicted and encouraged as I read the book, and it also have me a new fresh look at the book of Joshua and the lessons I can learn from it.

  The book was interesting and an easy read that packs a great message. I highly recommend it.

We think alike on this book, Mark. Max has a way with words and I always enjoy his writing, even the fiction book he published recently. But this would make a great in-depth study, which is exactly what I plan to do soon.
