Max Lucado

 I purchased this book from the Baylor University book store in Waco when I heard Max Lucado speak last November. It is a lovely hardback book featuring an antique map on the front and back cover. The pages are not uniform, the page edges off set--but I like this.

Max Lucado in Traveling Light teaches us through the 23rd Psalm and perfect applications the spiritual  baggage that we carry, what it does to us, and how to release it. It is not the will of our heavenly father that we carry around baggages of fear, loneliness, guilt, insecurities. It is His will that we release them.

I loved this book! For the main reason is it spoke to my heart.
Have you ever read a Christian book and like soothing ointment it helped to soothe a burden you were carrying?
Max's style of writing is easy to digest for any stage of adult reader. His chapters are short, the message is direct and easy to understand. His applications and stories stick with us in our minds--even much later after we've read the book. 
In the back of the book is a study guide with questions for use in individual or a book group.
My favorite quote from the book:
"When you know God loves you, you won't be desperate for the love of others."

Blissful Reading!
