Common people ...

Story after story marked by scandal, stumble, and intrigue. Who are these people? They're the people of the Bible.

And they're us. We find our stories in theirs. We find our hope where they found theirs. In the hands of an uncommon God.

In the midst of them all ... hovering over them all ... is the hero of it all: God. Maker. Shaper. Rescuer of sinking hearts. God. Passing out high callings, second chances, and moral compasses to all comers and takers.

In this gathering of inspiring stories from his numbers best-selling books, master storyteller Max Lucado revisits some of his favorite biblical characters -- all of whom were very human and imperfect, just like us.

If God can find a place for them ... He might just have a place for us too.

Review by Emily McClure
Overall Rating
What I love most about this book is how Max presents these Biblical characters as people you could easily come across in your everyday life, people you KNOW.

Love the humor and the fact that it left me hoping there would be more to come. I also enjoyed the fact that I saw these characters in a new way and realized things from their accounts that I never noticed before.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Great for an on your own read or group Bible study! (Posted on 1/24/2014)
