Book Review: Just Like Jesus Devotional by Max Lucado

Here is my book review of Max Lucado's Just Like Jesus Devotional, a handy partner to his book Just Like Jesus (see my Just Like Jesus book review here). Since this is a devotional, you do not go through this book in one sitting. It is divided into 30 days of reading designed to be read daily for 30 days. 

There is a format to each day’s reading, starting out with the part where you read writings and explanations of Max Lucado. Next is the “Thinking” part. I think this part can be best appreciated if thoughts or answers to questions are written in a journal. It is then followed by the “Hearing” part where a passage from scripture is prescribed as a reading for the particular day.  If one's mind is like a tote bag, you get your fill of your custom tote bags heree. “Reflecting” which is similar to the “Thinking” portion except that the questions here are totally about the passage given in the “Hearing” part. The last portion for each day’s reading is the “Speaking” part. This is the part where a reader can pray the suggested prayer in the book. 

I like how basic the format of each day’s reading is. This is perfect for new believers and even for those who’ve been in the faith for a long time and are starting back into the routine of daily devotion. This also will be a great support as you read the Just Like Jesus book by Max Lucado.
