Description

It's what happens when obstacles prevent you from seeing what God has done for you ... He still moves stones. People with questions. The Bible is absolutely full of them. A crook on a cross. A wild man in a cemetery. A five-time divorcĂ©e. A despondent cripple. A grieving sister. A father at the end of his rope. Why are these portraits in the Bible? So we can look back in amazement at what Jesus did? No ... these aren't just Sunday school stories. They are historic moments in which a real God met real pain so we could answer the question. "Does God care when I hurt?" On every page of this powerfully moving book, Max Lucado reminds us, the God who spoke to Moses at the burning bush still speaks loudly to you today. The God who forgave King David still offers you forgiveness.

This was an excellent book that we read for book discussion group. It is divided into two sections - The Bruised Reed and The Smoldering Wick. It is based on the text in Matthew 12:20: "A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out." Each chapter records a Bible

story and then talks about how God still does things for us.

A few chapters I particularly liked: "Don't miss the party" about the elder brother who would not forgive, therefore, he missed the celebration party. "You can choose like many to chain yourself to your hurt." "Bright Lights on Dark Nights" is about the paralyzed man Jesus heals beside the pool of Bethesda. The point is that when Jesus told him to take up his bed and walk, he did. Lucado asks what is it that paralyzes us? We should believe what Jesus says - we are forgiven, so unload the guilt. We're valuable, let's believe him; we're provided for, stop worrying, we're eternal, bury our fear; stand up, let's do it.

If one only reads the first story, Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks, there will be hope enough to face all life's trials, unanswerable questions and seemingly endless and purposeless pain-filled experiences.

This is my first exposure to Max Lucado. I read this book in conjunction with a small group study. I found it very well-suited to that purpose. The chapters are small and to the point and Max does a good job of leaving questions for the you and the others in your group to discuss. The study

questions were o.k. Honestly, sometimes in our group we came up with better discussion questions than Max did. I found some chapters much more compelling than others. There were even a couple of chapters that I didn't see eye-to-eye with Max on. One might take these things to be signs of a good book!
