Next Door Savior: Near Enough to Touch, Strong Enough to Trust

by Max Lucado

Hardcover, 2003




We applaud men for doing good things. We enshrine God for doing great things. But what about a man who does God things? One thing is certain. We can't ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God. The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league.

In his usual compelling and highly visual style Lucado muses on how Jesus is our "Next Door Savior"--a savior who mixes with the ordinariness of our lives. As usual, Lucado creates scenes and uses words in such a way as to touch the heart and make you think about Spiritual things in new ways.

Next Door Savior is an excellent read for anyone. Have you ever felt disconnected from Jesus? Have you ever wondered if he really understands what we go through? Max Lucado does a great job at answering those questions in this book.

Excellent book by one of my favorite authors.

I just couldn't get used to the author's style - his short, clipped sentences that are supposed to sound like very modern vernacular, like someone talking to you. Reads like a transcript of a chatty sermon.
