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 numerous bestselling 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 just might have a place for us too.

    " Great book for small group. Max Lucado enters the mind of his characters and leads us to deeper walk with God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 2/4/2014

    " I started my Christian journey with Max, and then found him watered down fluff. Funny how God knows just what you need and when you need it. An easy read, a reminder and some humility. I really enjoy this book and the perspective Lucado brings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/29/2014

    " Loved it! Max Lucado has a way of making the characters more real. Very enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/29/2014

    " While the chapters are short, they are so deep and relevant! I love how Max Lucado can make these stories so true to today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 1/20/2014

    " Looks at various characters from the Bible that are ordinary people just like you and me (i.e. flawed and imperfect), yet God can do good works in their lives, just like He can do for anyone regardless of what we've done. For example, the prayer of the penitent thief on the cross next to Jesus, who had led life as a criminal, but was told by Jesus "today you will be with me in paradise". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/17/2014

    " An easy read, although not one of Lucado's best. He uses a lot of material from his previous works, using allegories to make his points. Still, it never hurts to be reminded that God does use ordinary people to achieve His purpose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 11/23/2013

    " Good look at some characters from the Bible. Lucado writes well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alycia | 9/17/2013

    " I have not finished this book since we are using it in Life Care, but I decided to review what I have read. I have enjoyed this book. Each chapter is a different character of the bible and it makes you think. I also like the fact that each chapter is short so you can pick up the book at any time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graham | 8/24/2013

    " My small group at church did this book for our last study, it was a really good fix. Lucado is such a great writer because he can rate to such a wide audience of people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tntexas | 2/1/2013

    " A good reminder that God doesn't expect perfection from us - just a willingness to obey and try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Belen | 7/21/2012

    " Amazing book. i actually reaf this in spanish but it was great. its nice to think about certain characters of the Bible in a modern way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa Eccles | 3/17/2012

    " Have tissues handy for this one. It's great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/12/2011

    " This was a great book as is all of Lucado's. I so admire Max for his instructed tongue (Isaiah 50:4) that never ceases to inspire me to think through the Scriptures. I love how God gifts His people and it's beautiful to see the gifts God gives being used for His kingdom work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 9/8/2011

    " So many great characters of our Bible and Max Lucado correlates them to our own experiences. Well done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 6/2/2011

    " As with many topical books, some of the explorations of biblical characters were interesting, and others were, well, not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 elliereads | 2/25/2011

    " These essays are to savor, so it will likely take me months to get through this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 12/30/2010

    " Thought he was a bit flip w/ some of the characters but gave you something to think about. We can all be of use, perfection not required "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graham | 7/6/2009

    " My small group at church did this book for our last study, it was a really good fix. Lucado is such a great writer because he can rate to such a wide audience of people. "
