The life lessons, pulled from his Bible studies series take the Biblical situation, Lucado’ss practical observation and then inspiration, application and exploration. It is truly a powerful tool for personal growth or group leadership and preparation.
The NKJV would have not been my first choice, I prefer the NIV, however I enjoy having these study components with a translation that is newer to me, it too, adds dimension.
If your goal is to read through the Bible this year, or to just more Biblical reading—this would be a wise investment. It would also add much as a follow up to a sermon or other teaching, offering inspired insight with Lucado’s deft pen and turn of phrase.
More depth than a traditional devotional, but it does present scripture reading in a way that works well in the scattered way we live—thus it is nothing but inviting and encouraging greater faith.
