He Chose the Nails- Max Lucado

I love Max Lucado's books and it was no different. Lucado does a good job of combining everyday examples of life with the imagery of the cross to paint a compelling picture of God's love as demonstrated by sending the perfect lamb of Jesus Christ to live among sinful beings and to die on their behalf only to conquer the grave and be physically resurrected for the world to see. He uses the nail, the crown of thorns, the clothes that were taken from Jesus, the clothes that were put on him, the two other crosses beside him, and even the soldiers spit to explain the many things that had to happen to bring us salvation. This is a great book for Easter...or anytime of year!
