    1. really great book. John 3:16 is a verse a lot of people know and sometimes we forgot how powerful it is. this book is great for new and mature christians


    2. Having religious convictions is difficult to do in the age we live in. Scandals abound. Mega-churches seem to be only after money. And televangelists fake Divine messages through performances best suited as top nominations for The Golden Raspberry. (I mean, c’mon, does that pastor really think that speaking-in-tongues sounds like a miasma of gibberish in the likes I use with my children?)So it is easy to become cynical. I know. I have. Often. Still, I try to live my life with a pure heart. I t [...]


    3. Amazing and refreshing! Love the part when Lucado said about God's love and invitation:Whoever - includes me, you and allHowever - God takes us in however state we are in. No need to clean up.Whenever - Can call upon His name any timeWherever - Wherever I am, you are, we are not too far from Home!No status too lowNo hour too lateNo place too farHowever. Whenever. Wherever.Whoever includes you, me.r ----Max LucadoJohn 3:16For God so loved the worldthat He gave His ONE and ONLY Sonthat Whoever bel [...]


    4. This is my favourite verse and I loved this book! I learned some new things about both heaven and hell just because Max said things a bit differently than I've read or heard before. Great book!


    5. I'm actually reviewing the "Teen Edition". My Mom wanted to find a good book for a friend's son who is 15 and non-christian, so we went to the Family Christian Bookstore and picked this one up. I've heard Max Lucado is good, but never read his books. I felt bad giving a book to someone when I have no clue if it's even good, encouraging, or for the intended audience, so I decided to read it. Anyways, I'll admit, I don't read much (I know I should read more). I read this 151 page book in one sitti [...]


    6. This book is helpful if you don't know the basic premise of Evangelical Christianity. If you're already an Evangelical, you will probably enjoy this book like a warm hug or comfort food. If you don't fit either of those categories this book probably won't enlighten or persuade you (even if you're looking to be persuaded) as there isn't much substance to it.


    7. Much better than I expected. This is the first Max Lucado book I have read. Although I am a Christian, I tend to shy away from books that for whatever reason, I perceive to be the equivalent of "pop psychology" of the Christian world- i.e. those with the glossy covers that are highly marketed, authors that have a gazillion titles that merely appear to be the same book with a different name, etc. Whether that is an accurate perception or not, I've lumped Lucado in that category. I was pleasantly [...]


    8. I've never heard Max Lucado preach. But if he preaches half as good as he writes, he must be truly blessed by God.Lucado's writing brings God's word to life. Not only does he help grasp the meaning of the bible, he has a way of making you see it as if you were experiencing it firsthand!In 3:16: The Numbers of Hope, Lucado takes the most well-known scripture in the bible and breaks it down piece by piece showing how powerfully deep this seemingly simple verse truly is. John 3:16 is more than just [...]


    9. So I am not the evangelical, conservative religious type. That doesn't stop me from liking Max Lucado. Max presents the God we would all like to believe in - a God of love, mercy and forgiveness. This isn't your mother's "Sinners in the Hands of Angry God" God. Lucado's God is one this world could use more of. Lucado still believes in Hell - although he claims he would be happy to be proven wrong - and he probably doesn't support pro-choice initiaves or same sex marriage, (I am just making an As [...]


    10. The way the author takes you step by step through the passage of 3-16 and brings it alive is amazing. He is such a master of using every day experiences to walk you through what the verses you are reading really mean.I have read several of his other books and I am so drawn to them that I can hardly put them down. My spiritual life has taken on a whole new glow that was never present in my life before and I am just basking in that wonderful special feeling of peace within. I give this and all his [...]


    11. Lucado takes probably the most memorized and one of my favorite Bible verses and breaks it down into just what this verse means for our lives. He has a refreshing, modern way of using anecdotes to reinforce his message. Then in the second half of the book he includes forth daily inspiring mini-stories many of which I marked for emphasis to reread.


    12. What a perspective on such a short verse! I really love the way Max Lucado can put a new light on teachings we so often take for granted. I not only refreshed my memory of that verse I memorized so long ago, I also found new and true meaning to what it actually is saying. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about God's deep love for us in spite of all our flaws.




    13. It was mind blowing, It taught me alot of basic things about God, about the whole objective of sending His son to earth. It really magnified the gospel in me. 3:16 isn't just some corny verse anymore. It's my strong tower, my grip of grace now.



    14. Bom! Recebi a indicação de lê-lo e li. Não é minha religião, mais li por mera curiosidade. Não é uma maravilha, mais é até bom como um todo. Pra quem é evangelico eu recomendo. Tem lições valiosas da biblia e de vivência do pastor.


    15. Functions well as a daily devotional, especially the final section "Only Jesus: Forty Days with the Son". Like all Lucado's books it stayed with me all day and I was eager each morning to crack it back open. It's short and it's pertinent. Recommend.


    16. Another hit for Max LucadoGreat quick read for a new believer or a refresher for a long time believer. I would recommend to anyone looking to dive deeper into the greatest promise in the Bible.


    17. Love it!!! It just gives you hope and doesn't make you feel bad. It guides you to be a better person and a better Christian.


    18. Lucado has written a course on God's Love 101. A great book for the new believer or the old believer in need of a reminder of God's love for them.


    19. Quick read, transforming messageLucado has an approachable style, delivering basic truths. There is a devotional that goes along with this short book as well.




    20. I loved this book, as Max Lucado takes John 3:16 and breaks it down by each word - “loved”, “world”, gave”, etc. - to really define what God says! God's love, grace, and power is truly in every word and each chapter Max shares. My favorite chapters focused on God's love as I can never hear enough how much He loves me! and on Jesus being God's ONLY Son. It was wonderful to have everything broken down and focus on what is true as a reminder. “When Jesus says, 'In my Father's house ar [...]


    21. This book was a very easy read. The only part of the book/style I didn’t really like were the embellishment on the scriptures. I enjoy his personal stories but I do not like modern characterizations/thoughts/words/actions applied to the people in the Bible, and I don’t think we should take liberties with the written Word. For that reason I did not read through the 40 day devotionals at the end. That discrepancy aside, the message delivered by this book is a powerful one and rings true to wha [...]


    22. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16Max takes this scripture phrase by phrase and reveals the essential ingredients of a life reconciled to God. Max has a way with words, they flow easily and are not difficult to understand. One thought that kept coming to mind was, "This all makes sense to our western lifestyle but does it apply to people in poverty, say in areas of Africa?" I'm thinking of pe [...]


    23. Max Lucado has a fresh and approachable writing style which makes this an easy read. My favortie chapter is the one on hell: "no topic [such as hell] stirs greater resistance. Who wants to think about eternal punishment? We prefer to casualize the issue, making jokes about its residents or turning the noun into a flippant adjective. 'That was a hell of a steak.' Odd that we don't do the same with lesser tragedies. You never hear, 'My golf game has gone to prison.' Or, 'This is an AIDS of a trafi [...]


    24. This is an encouraging book! If you are curious, thanks to Tim Tebow, about why some people go on and on about Christianity or about John 3:16, read this book! If you think God is not involved with earth, read this book! Also, because of the 40 day devotional, this book would be perfect for Lent, because it walks through the life of Christ, manger to cross in 40 days. Beautiful, encouraging read focusing on the grace that came through the gift of the one Man, Jesus Christ. Good, fundamental read [...]


    25. "For God so loved the world that He gave His ONE and ONLY SON that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." This scripture is the center of Christianity, and to be a Christian one must believe that Christ died on the cross for our sins. This short little paperback book goes into depth explaining what that scripture fully encompasses and how we know that we can trust it, trust Christ, and turn our life around through Him. Recommendation: I happen to be Christian, but I bel [...]
