Second Chances

Max Lucado's book, "Second Chances" is a book that focuses on the necessity of God's grace and forgiveness. I love Max Lucado's writings, and this one does offer up some reminders of how much we need God's grace in our lives. We will never be "good" enough on our own - it is only through the unending, powerful grace of God that we are able to have a relationship with God. This is an important thing to remember, and I found that Lucado does a good job of putting this frame of mind into words. 

What I liked about this book was that the chapters are relatively short, which makes it easy to pick up whenever you have time in the day, and read one chapter, almost like a devotional. Lucado hits some great points, as always, and his writing style is easy to read, and he uses Biblical references as well as personal stories and events to illustrate his point. 

Overall I would give this book a 4/5 - well written, to the point, and a great reminder of God's grace in our lives. I would recommend this book for anyone - would be great for high schoolers, college students, or adults.
