Cast of Characters is a compilation of several of Max Lucado’s books, chronicling the lives of people in the Bible. Each chapter describes a different character, relating their story to our own. The pages are a celebration of what an awesome God can do with the lives of common people.
This was my first time reading a book by Max Lucado and I enjoyed it immensely. His writing style is casual, interesting, and easy to follow. I used it as a devotional to help me get back into reading my Bible more consistently. For many of the characters in the Bible I knew well, the author was able to bring a new perspective to their story. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter were very helpful. They really made me think about how I can apply the godly truths I’ve discovered within the stories. It was also nice to be able to dig deeper in the Bible, answering questions by reading other passages that related to the topics of the chapters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is searching to get an overview of many great characters in the Bible.
