Pop culture and psychobabble tell us to make ourselves the center of the universe in order to be happy. Churches have communicated the false idea that God exists to give us all that we selfishly want. In this book, Max Lucado reminds us that it's not about us, it's all about God. It is through this shift in thinking that we can truly live an unburdened, happy life.

This is one of the most profound books I have ever read. It was life-changing. It made me look at everything in light of eternity. This life is not about us, but what we were put here to do for God. A must read for all Christians Read full review
