Book Review: His Name Is Jesus
His Name Is Jesus is a compilation of selections from Max Lucado’s many devotional books. Portions have been taken from the devotionals about Jesus and arranged chronologically to tell Jesus’ story through Lucado’s insightful eyes. The book is divided into six chapters: the preface, Jesus’ birth, mission, death, resurrection, and legacy. The artwork and photography greatly enhance each story and highlighted thought.
Although the preface is all that seems to be unique to this book as far as words are concerned, the arrangement, photography, and design offer a whole new, collectible work. I especially enjoyed being able to read it at Easter time. The book was a valuable tool to help guide my reflections surrounding that precious holiday and Jesus’ sacrifice for you and for me. As an introductory gift or keepsake for someone who doesn’t collect, I’d recommend this book.
