Most of his books have appeared on one or more best-seller lists including those published by The New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA). Born and raised in Texas in 1955, he has served as senior minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio for 16 years. I’ve heard your theology described as the theology of second chances, partly because you weren’t a Christian for a time after your childhood and then re-embraced it in early adulthood

Pop culture and psychobabble tell us to make ourselves the center of the universe in order to be happy. Churches have communicated the false idea that God exists to give us all that we selfishly want. In this book, Max Lucado reminds us that it's not about us, it's all about God. It is through this shift in thinking that we can truly live an unburdened, happy life.

Max Lucado asks us toward the end of this book whether we would have stood up against Hitler or racism. He suggests these issues are in the past. His book is copywritten 2004. I suggest that in the light of today's issues that they are not in the past. We may have to face a future full of uncertainty.

This is an excellent book, but somewhat dated. Max Lucado could never have predicted the times we are going through now.

Max Lucado gives great insight on how to live a God-centered life. Not only do readers get a fresh perspective on how to live for and with Christ, but readers will discover a release and joy in learning how to live a life that is not all about them. While reading this book I applied the principles learnt and found myself immersed in curiosity for all things not about me and thus found myself richer, in the presence of God. When we become less, God becomes more, when God becomes more in our life, abundance, joy, fulfillment, love, holiness becomes more. My heart was definitely stretched throughout reading this book. Thank You Max, for allowing Jesus principles to pour into us!

I have never read a book that reveals the greatness of God so beautifully - well done! It just awakened me from my slumber to realize the God I serve, if we can only fathom the glimpse of the glory of our God, we will fear no evil - indeed if God be for us, who can be against us.

God doesn't exist for us. We exist for Him.

We were created to reflect His glory.
We were designed to point others back to Him.

The struggles we face, and the problems that seem to weigh us down are placed in our path for His purpose. And God will use whatever means necessary to let His glory be seen.

So many times as a stay-at-home mom, I find myself so engrossed in the many details that each day demands of me that I begin to feel like I'm in charge...of it all. I forget that I am only able to complete my tasks because of Him.

Max Lucado tells the story of a mirror that was used to save a man's life. The mirror had no illusions of its own. It simply accomplished the task it was designed to do...reflect the light...and it changed the course of a stranded soldier.

What would happen if we could lay aside our personal goals and ambitions and simply allow God's light to reflect for those around us to see? Would it change their lives also? I imagine so. And it makes me wonder how many people have not seen Him because I was too wrapped up in my own agenda to let Him shine.

I love reading Max Lucado's books. He is to-the-point, and there's no fluffy details or irrelevant stuff. This book truly reflected its' title..."It's Not About Me." And for that very reason...I give it 5 stars.

If you have become too wrapped up in your own struggles and questions...read this book. Let yourself be reminded that we were only created to point others back to Him. And whatever you're currently going through has a purpose. Trust Him to reveal it when He's ready.

Since we live in such a "me" centered culture, it may be difficult to accept that, regardless of your life's situation or circumstances, God and only God is to be honored and glorified. In this great book, Max Lucado puts the Christian walk in a whole new perspective. This book is not only worth reading, it's worth living.

My husband and I love this book. It's the kind of book you want read every year. It's easy to read. Not only does the author explain why it's all about God, but he also explains why this is best for us. A really good book to strengthen your spiritual understanding of Who God is. We've given numerous copies to friends and family as gifts. Love it!!!

Great book on an important topic...the world doesn't revolve around us. Max is once again very lucid in his presentation. It's a quick easy read and nothing's new in here; but lots of things we tend to overlook. Thanks for writing it, Max.
In an age where everything is allowed, most are confused, the truth is hidden, deception abounds- this book illustrates how God's word continues to be the single authoritative source for our lives. We are created, and our place is both unique and a burden in life. Knowing our place, our role and how things work is a key concept- you either flow with it or fight it. All the self help books in the world cannot create- or counsel us along our life to what God has in store for each of us. The good and the bad, it then becomes how we deal with each thing. This book puts things in persepective- with a bit of humor as well. Very good, worth the read.
