This book is seriously the best book that I have read in a long time. The title says it all: It is not about us, it is about God. This book really humbled me and made me realize what the true purpose of being a Christian is: to Honor God and show His glory. It is not about us; it is all about Him. Lucado provides biblical advice about change and shares about God's love. He provides real life and fictional stories as examples to illustrate his points and always uses scripture to bring the point home. This book really changed my way of thinking. The writing style is perfect and the book cover is just gorgeous! This is a must read for anyone aged 16 and up (it provides advice about some adult situations). ( )

Presents a practical guide to understanding that life revolves around God, and offers advice to looking at problems and difficulties differently and allowing God to change them.

There really is more to this life than you've been told.

It's All About Me....They all told us it was, didn't they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy....

But believing that has created chaos-noisy homes, stress-filled businesses, cutthroat relationships. We've chased so many skinny rabbits, says Max Lucado, that we've missed the fat one: the God-centered life.

If you want to shift into high gear with purpose, this is it: Life makes sense when we accept our place! Our pleasures, our problems, our gifts and talents...when they're all for the One who created us, we suddenly gain what we've been missing and find what we've been seeking.

Let Max Lucado show you how to make the shift of a lifetime. How to bump your life off self-center. How to be changed and experience the meaning-charged life you were meant to have. Your discovery starts here.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159145042X, Hardcover)

There really is more to this life than you've been told.

We've been demanding our way since day one ...

"I want a spouse that makes me happy and coworkers that always ask my opinion."

"I want weather that suits me and traffic that helps me and government that serves me."

Self-promotion. Self-preservation. Self-centeredness ...

"It's all about me."

They all told us it was, didn't they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy ...

But believing that has created chaos -- noisy homes, stress-filled businesses, cutthroat relationships. We've chased so many skinny rabbits, says Max Lucado, that we've missed the fat one: the God-centered life.

If you want to shift into high gear with purpose, this is it: life makes sense when we accept our place! Our pleasures, our problems, our gifts and talents ... when they're all for the One who created us, we suddenly gain what we've been missing and find what we've been seeking.

Let Max Lucado show you how to make the shift of a lifetime. How to bump your life off self-center. How to be changed and experience the meaning-charged life you were meant to have. Your discovery starts here.

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.… (more)
