Reading a Max Lucado book is as comfortable as having coffee and conversation with a close friend. He Chose the Nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart is signature Lucado: warm, conversational storytelling blended with scripture, humour and vulnerability.
Lucado invites us to understand the symbols surrounding Christ's crucifixion and celebrate the significance of the promises they offer. From the sign in different languages tacked to the cross ("I will speak to you in your language") to the burial clothing ("I can turn your tragedy into triumph") he speaks of each symbol as a "gift of grace" that reveals God's love for mankind.
Lucado takes us to Calvary, and shows us our sins nailed between the hands of Jesus and the cross. "You've made some bad choices in life, haven't you", writes Lucado. "You've chosen the wrong friends, maybe the wrong career, even the wrong spouse. You look back over your life and say, 'If only I could make up for those bad choices.' You can. One good choice for eternity offsets a thousand bad ones on earth. The choice is yours".
Whether he's bantering around phrases like "the hall monitors of holiness" or crafting a deeper expository on the crown of thorns, Lucado neatly balances the task of making his words accessible to a broad audience while delivering a meaty message on God's greatest sacrifice. Pick up this insightful read, and you will be glad you made the choice. --Cindy Crosby

As I read each chapter of this book I had a new appreciation for every aspect of Christ's passion. Max has a way of turning over the smallest stones to reveal the greatest diamonds hidden underneath.
Read it and discover why Jesus chose the nails.
My only regret about this book was that I read it too quickly.
In HE CHOSE THE NAILS, Mr. Lucado elucidates on every detail of the promises of the cross and the symbols pertaining to the crucifixion.
When you as a person are in physical pain or mental agony or abuse, or even when you feel as though the world has turned it's back on you, let me invite you to witness the sufferings and insults which our Saviour bore, highlighted in this book. His humiliations, physical pain, and shame are paramount,when we compare them with how we whine about our little aches, complaints and oppression in this world. May Jesus reign supreme....our only hope......our comfort and SALVATION. For us, HE CHOSE THE NAILS
This is a wonderful gift for Fathers Day. Go for it.
