Linger on the hill of Calvary.Rub a finger on the timber and press the nail into your hand.Taste the tinge of cheap wine and feel the scrape of a thorn on your brow.Touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.Allow the tools of torture to tell their story.Listen as they tell you what God did to win your heart.

Before reading this book, all I know is that Jesus died on the cross for me to be saved That s it I took it for granted and never appreciated it I just cannot understand how other people can truly understand the meaning of the cross and how it changed and still changing their lives But after reading this book, now I understand what the cross truly means It is a gift And who am I that God gave His only Son for me to experience freedom, His love and His mercy Reading this book allowed me to see th [...]
All of Lucado s books are spiritually enriching I am a priest and Lcado s books always bring God close to me.
Max Lucado writes, Much has been said about the gift of the cross itself, but what of the other gifts What of the nails, the crown of thorns What about the garment taken What about the garment given and it continues With that as an introduction, I will say that despite reading many books on Christianity, faith, Christ and so on, I had never looked quite at all of the things surrounding the cross, Jesus crucifixion, and resurrection in the way that Lucado looks at them in this book.With the simpl [...]
Today is Good Friday 4 18 2014 As a Christian, this is a book I read every Good Friday along with the DVD The Passion of the Christ, an amazing film If you watch the film, it will change the way you look at your faith This book was inspired by a Russian Christian who left a cross on Lucado s desk one Sunday with a note that said how his new faith in Jesus led him to retrieve the nails from an old abandoned Russian church and form those nails into a cross and around the cross he wove a crown of b [...]
Amazing perspective gained thanks to this book I am all about enriching my relationship with Christ and this book truly further opened my eyes as to what all took place at the Cross Beautifully yet humorously written GOD is the Author and Creator and nothing that took place at the Cross was by mere coincidence or random Nothing Our GOD does is in vain, not the choosing of whom was sacrificed nor how HE was sacrificed Highly recommended Such an AMAZING and LOVING GOD we serve
Max Lucado has such a unique way with words and describes in ways which make you think and actually wonder, why didn t I think of that This is truly one of my favorite of his books and I have enjoyed all that I have read His insights are quite amazing.What GOD did to WIN YOUR HEARTI am so glad that it fell to my lot to review this book It has been published some time, but only been brought to my notice recently Max Lucado writes very simply and clearly, but within his writing is deep understandi [...]
I ve been a fan of Lucado s for years He s one of the many who brought Jesus to life to me He makes Christianity and spiritualism relatable in this day and age This is about what Jesus did for each of us and it ll move you without being preachy Highly recommend My Rating 5 stars
I chose to switch books by Max Lucado to this one since it is Lent season The book was very touching and thought evoking I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it to anyone The book touches on various aspects of the Crucifixion and really shows how much God loves us to be willing to go through what he did Although the subject matter is very intense and, heart rendering, it isn t a dark book by any stretch I was nervous about reading it due to the subject matter but Max didn t focus on the torturou [...]
As a Christian, I never wanted to get to the point where I took Jesus for granted and yet, I started to tune out when we talk about the cross in church This book completely shifted how I view the cross and Jesus PERSONAL sacrifice for me and my sins I sat down to read the first few chapters and had to pull out a pen and highlighter because there was so much to dig into Incredibly blessed by this book and would absolutely recommend it, whether you are a Christian or Atheist or anywhere in between [...]
The message of the cross was never intended to be theology for your head, but doxology for your heart Max writes in a way that helps you think about the cross in a way that brings you to your knees as you experience afresh the meaning of the cross.
Sencillamente excelente, no encuentro otra palabra que lo describa El lenguaje es claro y directo y te hace ver lo que ocurri en el calvario de otra perspectiva.
Max Lucado tiene esa habilidad de llevarte hasta lo m s alto y dejarte caer en un abismo de realidad que pocos logran, y que te hace pensar y repensar los relatos b blicos.Me gusta mucho descubrir c mo es que cada palabra escrita en la Biblia y cada evento y microevento fue puesta para dar un sentido espec fico y mucho m s amplio del que comunmente pensamos.Una vez m s queda demostrado que la Biblia es m s profunda que extensa.
An invitation to linger on Calvary A look at the pieces that make up the Crucifixion A chance to understand why The answer may not be the one we want to hear, but it s the one we need and that s that He did it just for me and for you.From the back of the book Linger on the hill of Calvary.Rub a finger on the timber and press the nail into your hand.Taste the tinge of cheap wine and feel the scrape of a thorn on your brow.Touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.Allow the tools of tortu [...]
This book is just what is needed to understand from a fresh perspective, the gift of God s Grace, Jesus Christ s Sacrifice the entire gift of Salvation If, after reading this book, you are not assured of God s love for you, then at least when you re read the accounts in The Gospels, you ll have pause cause to wonder Max Lucado has a God given talent for teaching the Gospel in such a way that 20th 21st century citizens can be guided to God in a language they understand.
I am not a big fan of Lucado, so I will save space so that others may gush about his saccharine sweet salvation y snippets.
i m getting magnetized by the cross it s irresistible
Very worth it I love the way Max explains everything
One of my favorite authors
Why have You chosen me out of million Your child to be Engkau mengambil tempat terhina untuk lahir dan mengambil cara yang paling hina untuk mati, demi kita.
the first book i read from max brought me to tears and on my knees great book.
A lady from Bible Study loaned me this book I wanted to read it but you know how sometimes they sit there for a while because there are a ton of books you want to read and you kind of just go down the list God saved this book though Ha Our basement flooded and this book was on the floor, but it was on a plastic grocery sack and it never got wet at all I read this book in like three days I loved the part about how you are saved but you fall in love with Jesus as your relationship grows Like a ma [...]
This was my first foray into the books of Max Lucado While I love the book and the way he presented the various gifts of the cross, which I had not of thought of in this way before, I was less impressed with the study guide that goes along with this book The study guide in the back of the book differs from the one used with his video study Discussion questions are hard to find amid his continued teachings and, in my opinion, some of the questions seem to come out of nowhere or seem so superficia [...]
Very well written book I started reading this book on Easter Sunday I was at home sick unable to attend church and quite frankly feeling sorry for myself This book reminded me of what Christ did and He not only died for the world but each of us personally The book brought to life the different parts of the death and resurrection things like the crown of thorns, the prisoners etc and why they were important and what they represented This book helped remind me that Jesus is aware of me and loves m [...]
I read this during Lent, a good time to reflect on all that Christ chose to suffer in our place Not all of the doctrine was correct we don t choose to come to faith, but the Holy Spirit works faith in our hearts But overall, a good reflection on various aspects of the journey to the cross the crown of thorns, the robe, the nails, the cross, the empty tomb.
This book was very well done and I enjoyed reading it It wasn t the best Max Lucado book I ve ever read but it was still very good It talks about everything that Jesus did for us by coming to earth and dying on the cross It was a great read and I would definitely recommend it to everyone but especially to Christians who need a reminder of what Jesus did for them.
Finished this amazing book yesterday Max Lucado s conversational style and deep Scripture knowledge have been used by God to teach me how every aspect of the Crucifixion and the Tomb is a showcase of how God loves me I heartily recommend this book to all
God s Love Explained through the Ultimate SacrificeMax Lucado s book He Chose the Nails provides you with a deep understanding of God s love for us using the symbols found at Jesus s crucification and how we can share in the love God has for us.
Inspiring, growth, learning Love forgiveness God will always be there.
Excellent Simply written Devotional Moving So Biblical I highly recommend it.
God s message is simply this I did it for you I did it all for you.
