He Chose the Nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart
By Max Lucado (Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2000)
Take a walk along the road Jesus took as He was nailed to the cross. Brush your hands against the cold nails and rough wood, while drawing closer to Him through this devotional and conversationalist-type book.
With classic Max Lucado tone, Bible verses and quotes swish through his paragraphs. Present day stories are sprouted throughout the chapters that add unique elements to this already precious bouquet.

“Why is the cross the symbol of our faith? To find the answer look no farther than the cross itself. Its design couldn’t be simpler. One beam horizontal-the other vertical. One reaches out-like God’s love. The other reaches up-as does God’s holiness. One represents the width of His love; the other reflects the height of His holiness. The cross is the intersection,” (Lucado, 2000, p.113).
There is a study guide at the back, which is beneficial if seeking to dig deeper into the words conveyed in the chapters. This book would make a great selection for Bible studies, whether in groups or alone with God.
