Press In This Easter Season with Max Lucado's On Calvary's Hill: Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I am proud to be a Family Christian Blogger, Affiliate, and Max Lucado blogger.  I was provided with my own copy of On Calvary's Hill to facilitate my review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Easter is just a week away from tomorrow.  Do you have big plans?  Do you celebrate Easter?  For my family Easter is a big deal.  It is the cornerstone of our Christian faith.  What must one do to be saved?  Romans 10:9 - If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 

 

On Calvary's Hill is a compilation of material published in books written by Max Lucado.  This book invites us to follow Jesus and see how He spent His last days.  It includes 40 readings for the Easter season.  Each reading begins with a scripture and ends with a prayer.  There are 40 scripture segments, 40 excerpts and 40 prayers.  You can see the power already, right?  This book is also about life application.  Every excerpt has a life application nugget for you to grab.

We find ourselves on the road to Jerusalem with Jesus and his disciples.  Yet, we are reminded that this mission was set forth when the apple was first bit.  Draw courage from God and remember His promises.

I have always loved Mary's faith, and the way she luxuriously poured out the costly perfume on the One that mattered most.  Friends, be extravagant in your love for the Lord!

When faced with crucifixion, Jesus went to His Father.  We should also enter life's challenges with the Lord, not alone.  This book may seem small but it is full of truth and wisdom.

And the cross, oh the cross!  The greatest sacrifice ever made.

Don't you just want to dive right into this book?  I love that you can pause each day and breathe in one of these segments - read, think, pray and press into Him.  You can do this in just a few minutes or take an hour, whatever you need.  You can also read it in one sitting and do the same - your choice.  Gain a better understanding of the Easter season and the Lord at the same time. 

 You can order your own copy of On Calvary's Hill here.
