Popular Christian author and minister Lucado skillfully applies humorous analogies and down-to-earth wisdom to reflect on what it means to become more truly Christlike. Lucado's insights are culled from scriptural reflections on the life of Christ. If we can examine our own lives, longings, and abilities in light of Christ's example, the profound liberation of God's grace could change in our lives what we alone cannot. Lucado's appeal, for the most part, lies in his own powerful faith and in the lightheartedness that it brings to his writing. His conclusions, however, tend toward simplification and sometimes stop short of necessary further reflection (his heavy-handed condemnation of Judas's betrayal is a case in point).
