Is death really the end, or is it the beginning? What did the crucifixion of Jesus Christ mean for that ultimate question? Can there be real hope in it all?
In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado takes on these questions and more. Using stories from life today and biblical ones, sometimes blending the two, he illustrates that “my life is not futile, my failures are not fatal, and my death is not final.” The book includes an extensive study guide.
While I related to many of the concepts and to Mr. Lucado’s presentation style, I didn’t quite get the way he presented all of the information. Some of the storylines weren’t complete or didn’t obviously connect to the overall message. Or so it seemed to me. I may have missed something.
But it did minister to my heart in a way I needed with the still fresh sting of my dad’s passing. Death is not final, thanks to six hours one Friday long ago.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Sneeze, but was not required to write a positive review.
