We applaud men for doing good things.
We enshrine God for doing great things.
But what about a man who does God things?
One thing is certain. We can't ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God.
The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league. The head of the parade? Hardly. No one else shares the street. Who comes close? Humanity's best and brightest fade like dime-store rubies next to him.
Dismiss him? We can't. Resist him? Equally difficult. Why would we want to?
Don't we need a God-man Savior? A just-God Jesus could make us, but not understand us. A just-man Jesus could love us, but never save us. But a God-man Jesus?
Near enough to touch. Strong enough to trust. A next door Savior.

NEXT DOOR SAVIOR (Near Enough to Touch, Strong Enough to Trust)
by Max Lucado
Max Lucado has done it again with the marriage of the profound and the ordinary! Painting pictures and story telling make this book very readable. Next Door Savior is a book filled with thought-provoking wisdom and personal accounts that make it relatable.
Somehow Max Lucado opens up the Scripture in ways that perhaps many of us have not seen before. He brings ethereal wisdom down to where we live. How does his dog, Molly relate to Nicodemus? (A funny story.) I really enjoy the way he gets you thinking in ways that are perhaps “outside the box,” and challenge the small ways we see God. You come away feeling closer to the LORD.
This book includes a discussion guide in the back that would be great for a personal study, or better yet for a small group.
I give this book 5/5 stars****
