He Chose the Nails




There is no one that I've found that is more masterful with words than Max Lucado. His words grip you and your soul is moved with each turning page. This was the perfect read for the perfect time of year. The theme throughout will stay with me indefinitely: It wasn't nails that held Christ to a cross. The message is so powerful and heart humbling. He gave us what we don't deserve . . . and for no other reason, but love.

With insight, profound detail, and help from the Holy Spirit, Max Lucado has written a classic whose title says it all. There is not a soul who will not be touched by the message within "He Chose the Nails." Add this one to your vintage collection, you'll need to revisit it time and time again to be reminded of God's love for you. Although the book in full was a powerful read, I didn't prefer the very beginning. The story of Max shopping for his wife seemed to water down the sacrifice of Christ. I just would have preferred something a little more gripping and powerful. I got it, I was just hoping for something a little more heart wrenching than belly laughing.
