The Great House of God

The back cover reads, “God’s greatest desire is to be your dwelling place – The Home For Your Heart. He doesn't want to be merely a weekend getaway. He has no interest in being a Sunday bungalow or even a summer cottage. He wants to be your mailing address, your point of reference, your home…always. He wants you to live in the Great House of God.” Mr. Lucado starts with the fact that we are adopted by God, he is our adoptive father, and will not abandon us whatsoever. Then in Chapter 3 we move on to faith, and how we can trust God. Max breaks down the Lord’s Prayer into detail, using it as a guide to God's House. We are not talking about an earthly house but His house, living within Him! It really is amazing how Max Lucado takes you right through the front door to explore the whole house and even up to the roof, to see how God has built it specifically for you. I really enjoyed this book, especially the chapter “The Hallway” where he once again takes us on that walk of grace and forgiveness. Also included is a study guide in the back of the book.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
