Come Thirsty by Max Lucado

I read Come Thirsty after reading several other Max Lucado books. I've come to expect entertaining and interesting Christ based books from Max. Generally they are not deep mind numbing theological reading, but rather interesting reading that is hard to put down. Max is a great storyteller.

The beginning of Come Thirsty drew me in and I couldn't wait to see what was next and then it seemed to drop off. After a couple of chapters I found myself wandering and then I hit a couple of chapters that really held my attention. This is the way that the whole book was for me. It had its ups and downs.

Come Thirsty has a wonderful premise. Saturate yourself in Christ. There is definitely nothing wrong with this premise, it is based on John 4:14, "Whoever drinks the water I give will never be thirsty. The water I give will become a spring of water gushing up inside that person, giving eternal life". Max uses four parts; Accept His Work, Rely on His Energy, Trust His Lordship and Receive His Love.

The ending of the last chapter was very interesting. Max used biblical quotes and nothing else to write a letter from God. It was very uplifting.

Even though Come Thirsty didn't hold my attention like the other Max Lucado books it is still good reading. The message is strong and we should all strive to soak up as much of Christ as we can.

The Dehydrated Heart
Sin Vaccination

Hope for Tuckered Town
