The Numbers of Hope, John 3:16

Oct 8, 2007
Christian best selling author and pastor, Max Lucado has done it again. On September 11, 2007, Max Lucado released his highly anticipated book, John: 316, The Numbers of Hope. There are high expectations of this book as the publisher claims a one million first print run.

It is hoped that this book and it's campaign will help to turn more people to the Lord. The verse John 3:16 is thought to sum of the essence of Christianity better than any other verse.

With over 50 books written and an amazing 50 million copies printed, Max Lucado is regarded as one of today's top Christian writers. There is a massive marketing campaign promoting the release of the book which was chosen to be released on 9/11. These numbers of despair starkly contrast to the numbers in the book, John 3:16, The Numbers of Hope. Lucado thinks so highly of this verse that he calls it the "Hope Diamond" of scripture.

The Bible verse, John 3:16 is probably the most famous verse in the Bible "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." The book takes that verse and runs with it. The Numbers Of Hope was written as a book that is both for those that are very familiar with the Bible and worship God, and for those that know little about the Bible and do not actively Believe in the Lord. It is written to help show the reader why it is so important to understand and live in the light of the words of John 3:16.

Lucado accurately interprets the gospel as he discusses the work of Jesus and his importance to man. The book goes into man's free will and how God gives us this will and does not force his upon us.

The book also does a good job in emphasizing that there is only one God and that Christ is the only way to Heaven. Lucado also discusses that Hell is real and goes into detail about the horrors of Hell and the joy of Heaven.

There are twelve chapters in The Numbers of Hope which deal with the verse in a way that is easy to understand and effectively communicates its message. The book concludes with 40 brief readings that are intended to be a part of a 40 day devotional. These readings are taken from Lucado's previous books
