I remember the first time I saw Kerry Shook teaching. I was flipping through the channels and he was preaching on his TV program. It was interesting as he was talking about the recipe of life as he was making and cooking a pizza on stage. It wasn’t overly deep or new in content but it was interesting, different, and good if you were looking at the topic for the first time.

From that, I bought his book “One Month to Live” and wanted to do a sermon series based off the concept. Again, I didn’t find it to deep or new information but creatively done and a good concept for something more basic for someone on a surface level.

 

This book falls into the same flow. It is well done but nothing all that new. If you and your spouse are looking for something to dig into together, to spur on some conversation, and to remind yourself were your commitment levels may be struggling, this is a good book. If you are one who has been doing deeper study on the topic, this is not the deeper book you are looking for as much as a compilation of you might find to be common sense in the mix of your study.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I have to admit up front that I like Max Lucado but I’m not an avid reader of his works. There’s something in his writing style that loses me. While I enjoy listening to him live the few times I have seen him, his story telling style does not hold me in written form.

That said, this book is different. More practical in its application, Max Lucado spends time answering issues that people have asked him about over the years and that you and I have had as well. It was interesting that I just finished a review for another book that tried to answer questions as if God was answering. I was a little uncomfortable with it. This format is more my style.

OK, I admit that I’m a tad behind (well, maybe more than a tad behind) in my book reviews so I’m going to try to catch up tonight and get back on track =)

Conversations with God is an interesting book that asks some basics questions such as “What is Heaven like?”, “If God loves us, why is there suffering?” and the like. Good basic questions that most everyone wonders at one point or another in their Christian walk. The answers are done in the form of being answered in a conversational form by God and others in heaven.
