Book Review of One God, One Plan, One Life by Max Lucado

A beautiful hard cover year devotional packed full with insight, inspiration and encouragement. A perfect gift!

One God, One Plan, One Life : A 365 Devotional, Max LucadoPublisher's Blurb: Life is hard, and today’s teens could use daily guidance and reassurance that God is with them, through it all and despite it all. In One God, One Plan, One Life, bestselling author Max Lucado offers teens an accessible way to connect with their Lord. Daily devotions address such topics as faith and obedience but also offer wisdom on topics that teens battle, such as purity, bullying, alcohol and drug use, and self-image. Each day includes a short devotion and accompanying scripture as well as a take-away application that will inspire and challenge teens to trust in God and His plans for them.

One God, One Plan, One Life helps teens to cut through life’s distractions and rely on the one thing that is truly important—a relationship with God.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I can't wait to pass it on to my teenage daughter. Each devotional page has a scripture verse, a story or explanation and a deeper application. (F.Y.I. The scripture verses are taken from many different translations.) It only takes a couple of
minutes a day to read and will inspire a deeper understanding of God. I've always loved the deep and thought-provoking way Max Lucado can take one single concept and peel back so many layers to it. He is a gifted teacher and encourager. His words are simple enough for young people to understand, yet profound enough to inspire change. They do not carry a preachy, "you better do better" tone, but rather a loving conversation pointing out a fresh take on the trials of growing up. Max's storytelling abilities shine in these pages.

Some extras added to the book are the hard cover, for endurance and a ribbon for bookmarking your place each day. There is also a bible reading guide at the end of the book. The publishers list it as appropriate for ages 13-17, but I think adults could benefit from the words in it as well.

An absolutely awesome book - worth every penny.

Thank you to Booklook Bloggers and Thomas Nelson publishers for a free copy of this book to review. I am not required to review it positively. These thoughts are my own.
