HE STILL MOVES STONES (Hardcover) by Max Lucado +
WHY DOES THE BIBLE contain so many stories of hurting people? Why do we read one account after another of Jesus meeting people with problems? A crook on a cross. A wild
man in a cemetery. Nicodemus rejected. Peter ashamed. Joseph
bewildered. Martha bereaved.
Though their situations vary, their conditions don't. They have nowhere to turn. On their lips a desperate
prayer. In their heart a desolate dream. And in their hands a broken rope. But before their eyes stands a never-say-die Galilean who majors in stepping in when everyone else steps
Why are these portraits in the Bible? So we could be grateful for the past? So we could look back with amazement at what Jesus did?
No. The purpose of these stories is not to tell us what Jesus did. Their purpose is to tell us what Jesus does.
That's the message of the New Testament--God doing for people what people cannot do themselves. That is the goal of this book - to witness the tenderness of Christ. And to be reminded that what He did then, He is willing to do today.
The book also includes a study guide which make it ideal for Bible study groups.
