Stories of uncommon people in the hands of an uncommon God – that’s what all this book is about.
Max Lucado takes stories of simple people from the Bible and presents one story after another of God using man’s best and overcoming man’s worst.
A simple book with a simple message – God uses imperfect people and makes them perfect through his love.
The book is structured in small chapters, each chapter is entitled by the name of a character from the Bible. What I loved the most is that before every chapter the author presents the actual passage from the Bible that speaks about the character, therefore it is easier to follow what the Scripture says as you read Lucado’s thoughts on the characters presented in the book.
In my opinion Cast of Characters is a wonderful book, and I would recommend it to anyone that still thinks that there is no way that God can use them for his glory. The Bible is full of simple people that had nothing special about themselves, but God saw something that nobody could see inside of them, and that's what made them special.
