Everything I've read by Max Lucado has touched my heart in one way or another. He truly has a gift, and His understanding of God's love for us, His children, shines through every word. This new release — the majority are excerpts taken from other, longer books — is no exception to the rule.
For These Tough Times: Reaching toward heaven for hope & healing is a slim volume, but it's packed with wisdom and encouragement for the times in which we live. "When the jobs are lost, marriages fall apart, and loved ones die, what are we to do?" Fear, anger, and despair aren't the answer. Turning to God is. It's there in His arms that we'll find peace.
If you know someone (or if you are someone) who is struggling today, this book is the perfect one to give to them (or to yourself) as a gift. It definitely will help you reach toward heaven for hope and healing.
