Dear Friend,

May I share a story that is very dear to my heart?

It’s a story of hillbillies and simple folk, net casters and tax collectors. A story of a movement that exploded like a just-opened fire hydrant out of Jerusalem and spilled into the ends of the earth: into the streets of Paris, the districts of Rome, and the ports of Athens, Istanbul, Shanghai, and Buenos Aires. A story so mighty, controversial, head spinning, and life changing that two millennia later we wonder:

Might it happen again?

Heaven knows we hope so. These are devastating times: 1.75 billion people are desperately poor; one billion are hungry. Lonely hearts indwell our neighborhoods and attend our schools. In the midst of it all, here we stand: you, me, and our one-of-a-kind lives. We are given a choice … an opportunity to make a big difference during a difficult time. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope?

Worth a try, don’t you think?

—Max Lucado

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurel | 2/9/2014

    " pretty good book. Max has a way of making us think of beyond the here and now and forward to the difference we can make "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andi Newberry ~Tubbs | 2/3/2014

    " Max Lucado is my kind of guy! I have always loved the way he writes! He is down to earth and has a way of intersecting daily life with God's word and showing us how we can be true examples to those around us. This book is a challenge, it challenges Christians to use the circumstances they are in and the people they come in contact with to make a difference in our world. Max bases his book on the sermons in Acts, and really he hits home on so many levels. If we as Christians would be more like the Acts church we could accomplish so much more! I highly recommend this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Wilmoth | 2/1/2014

    " Fantastic read. Convicted me of what little I do in comparison to all I could do for God given all He has blessed me with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 1/18/2014

    " Wow. This book was beautifully written and so powerful. Don't read it unless you want to feel convicted and empowered. I feel as if I need to read it a second time to fully soak in the truth that can change the way I live. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria Germann | 1/17/2014

    " This was light reading... giant font, big margins. It was as if it was a thought stretched into a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/16/2014

    " Good, inspirational read. I especially enjoyed the last chapter on prayer. Gets me thinking about finding little ways to give amidst my busy life and perhaps bigger ways later when the boys are older. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 12/17/2013

    " Amazing book which describes the ability we ALL have to do things that will outlast our physical lives here. It will change your way of thinking and cause you to look for opportunities to make the world a better place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suraj Reddy | 12/13/2013

    " Inspires me to step outside the boat more and more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 12/10/2013

    " Awesome! Great ideas for making your life count. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robbyn Glinsmann | 11/24/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Damon Morgan | 6/11/2013

    " Great book that I read a chapter at a time at lunch. An outstanding representation of what it is to live life as demonstrated in the biblical book of Acts. Reading Lucado is like getting a hug. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 4/19/2013

    " This is a collection of guidelines for living a life that makes a difference, fleshed out with some interesting anecdotes and with stories from the Bible. The guidelines are nothing new but it's a good idea to be reminded of them from time to time and to check on how you're doing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Khari | 3/20/2013

    " God has put His thumbprint on all of us. The questions is: How are you going to use that thumbprint to glorify His kingdom? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 3/1/2013

    " Humanity at it's highest level. This book will make you reevaluate the real meaning of life. Be prepared to think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Layne | 2/10/2013

    " Max Lucado always does a fabulous job of saying things in a unique and thought provoking way. This book is excellent in helping us consider ways to look beyond ourselves in order to make a difference in the lives of those around us. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 11/12/2012

    " Read half the book, and while I found it enjoyable and with great insights, it just wasn't new information for me. So I stopped reading. No offense. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana Muntsinger | 9/1/2012

    " I know I am supposed to like Max's books, but this one is a real winner. Practical, inspiring without laying on the guilt. Thoroughly a blessing. And Max is donating 100% of his author royalties to charity. Good stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seanna | 11/25/2011

    " This inspired me to actively seek out opportunities to serve others. Kindness and compassion go a long way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia | 9/11/2011

    " Valid and deep points! Good book but don't expect a manual with actual x's and o's... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molli | 5/13/2011

    " This book gives you a lot to think about! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 4/18/2011

    " It was very cool. Pushed me in a positive way to not be fearful in my walk with God and gave me courage. It was so good that I suggested to the college minister at my church that we do it in next fall's life-group session. (I hardly make recommendations.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 4/8/2011

    " Another ok read. Just not my type of book. Some interesting info there but not something I would choose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/18/2011

    " Not a deep review of fear, but great ideas and thought starters to take further. Fear's definitely something that controls us, and God has other ideas for how we are to live. Working on a sermon series on this topic now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sienna | 3/7/2011

    " No book can completely remove fear, but this is a very good book..and the devotions are really helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 3/2/2011

    " Loved this book. A great new viewpoint on fear and worry, and why they are unnecessary with a God like ours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 2/1/2011

    " WONDERFUL READ. BRINGS YOU BACK TO THE REALITY THAT "THE LORD IS WITH US ALWAYS", WE ARE NOT TO FEAR. THIS BRINGS PEACE TO ONES HEART THAT MIGHT BE GOING THROUGH DIFFICULTIES IN THIS WORLD. I always enjoy Max Lucado's books. "
