Summary
Weary travelers. You've seen them staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed luggage. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times, we are people like that -- not with our physical luggage, but with our spiritual load. We're worn out from carrying excess baggage filled with fear, worry, guilt, discontent, perfectionism, anxiety, or grief. Where do we turn for help? Using the verses of Psalm 23 as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens to help us release some that we were never meant to bear. Book jacket.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Feel the need to throw off the cumbersome burdens that weigh you down? Certainly, responsible adults learn to adjust to tremendous stresses and equip themselves to carry the heavy weights of self-reliance, weariness, worry and hopelessness over the long haul. But this is not necessary, says bestselling author Lucado (Just Like Jesus; He Chose the Nails; The Applause of Heaven). In Psalm 23, God counters the misconception that burden-bearing signals Christian maturity and admonishes followers to leave their loads at Christ's feet, as he is the only one truly equipped to handle the weight. Lucado dissects Psalm 23 while recounting tender tales of men and women who have overcome crushing circumstances with Christ's support. In keeping with Lucado's typical homespun style, humorous anecdotes often precede powerful punches of biblical truth. Rounding out this collection of essays is a study guide encapsulating each chapter's topic. Readers will travel back, up and on as they reread key excerpts, study pertinent Bible verses and allow the lessons to take root. This insightful collection not only measures up to the high standard of Lucado's own previous works, but his profound perspective on life and spirituality frequently exceeds expectations. (Oct.) Forecast: This should be quite a boost for the recently christened W Publishing Group (formerly known as Word), whose cup runneth over with Lucado. Sales for He Chose the Nails have reached 720,000 copies, while Lucado's recent devotional, Grace for the Moment, has sold 600,000 copies for J. Countryman. W will spend a cool half million in shepherding this title toward the green pasture of bestsellerdom. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
