His Name is Jesus – The Promise of God’s Love Fulfilled by Max Lucado is a stunning hard-cover gift book with artistically embossed lettering outside, good sized font inside and enclosed in a sturdy cover. Although the outward appearance of the whole book is a feast for the senses, it is the content that powerfully shows us Jesus, the Son of God.

“He stilled a storm with one command. He raised the dead with one proclamation. He rerouted the history of the world with one life,” writes Max Lucado as part of the preface before he covers “His Birth, His Mission, His Death, His Resurrection and His Legacy” in the rest of the book. This book is a compilation of 20 previous works of Lucado which include prose, personal contemplations and poetry. I like that the best of his previous works is all about Jesus!

An excellent choice as a gift or keepsake for all kinds of occasions, such as baptism, confirmation, graduation, birthdays or weddings! It’s filled with appealing art and illustrations and very easy to read in Lucado’s signature style. Some might be distracted that various translations and paraphrases of the Bible are used, rather than just one.

It is my hope and prayer that this decorative treasure will be well used to reveal the real treasure - Jesus. Jesus – the moment he removed the stone, he removed all reason for doubt! Excellent for devotional reading and reflection!

Max Lucado is great...I think...isn't he the guy who wrote the full (and very thick) Bible concordance???
