God Will Use This For Good by Max Lucado

At the start of this book Max Lucado notes the fact that Jesus was an immigrant (of Egypt when escaping persecution). I fear some modern Christians need reminding of that. He expresses a deep insight into the pain and troubles of others, together with healing sentiments and through the use of his excellent writing skill which, as always, are soaked in love. Lucado employs a poignant use of analogy with Joseph’s story throughout much of this book. He explains the purposes of bad things happening, offers comfort for suffering to those who are able and willing to be aware of it as a part of the ‘big story’ and for those who can’t see that far yet, he offers assurance that in time the worst of it will pass.
