"No one can do everything, but everyone can do something."
I've got mixed reviews for this particular book by Max Lucado.
I was also pleased to find that Lucado's fourth chapter, "Don't forget the bread," reminds us that our primary focus must always be on the eternal, not just on food, water, compassion, and shelter for those in need. However, this concept comes across as just that--one little chapter, rather than true answer for man's problems.
I can't wholeheartedly recommend this book, for a few reasons. For one, Lucado cites corrupt Bible translations and paraphrases, for a grand total of 9 translations. In addition, Lucado gives references to ungodly personalities.
[God] is U2, and we are the neighborhood garage band.Lucado also says that Jesus saw something in his disciples John and Peter (and others) that was "worth developing and saving." This goes contrary to what thhe Bible teaches about salvation: that we're altogether unworthy. God doesn't save sinners for the sinners' sake, but for His own sake. Lucado also consistently refers to all people as "God's children."
