Book Review: The Great House of God by Max Lucado

The Great House of God
by:  Max Lucado

About the Book:
"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.
Using the Lord's Prayer as a floor plan, bestselling author Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you. Warm your heart by the fire in the living room. Nourish your spirit in the kitchen. Seek fellowship in the family room. Step into the hallway and find forgiveness.
It's the perfect home for you. After all, it was created with you in mind. There's only one home built just for your heart. No house more complete, no structure more solid.
The roof never leaks. The walls never crack. The foundation never trembles.
In God's house, you're home. So come into the house built just for you. Your father is waiting."

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book and believe that I will keep it on an easily accessible shelf as I plan to reference it again.  Based on the Lord's Prayer and using it as a guide to God's House this book got me thinking about many different things.  We are not talking about an earthly house but His house, living within Him!  It really is awesome 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 love the Ponder, Prepare & Pray Study Guides at the end of the book that I will be referencing over and over.  After losing my earthly "home" to a fire just 7 months ago, the word Home has taken on new meaning for me and is really why I was drawn to this book.  I am not focused on the loss of that House anymore, because I know that I live in God's House and it is an amazing place!  Loved it, 2 thumbs up!

*I received this book compliments of BookSneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
