Unshakable hope contains about a dozen promises of God that are particularly meaningful to the author, Max Lucado. He uses illustrations from history and personal anecdotes to expand each promise. I must confess to being a little disappointed with the book, especially the early chapters as they lacked the personal application that I have come to expect from Max. Often it felt like information for new Christians. While the book isn’t intended to contain in-depth theology, given Max’s experience, I was hoping for more.

Also, the study questions at the back didn’t work particularly well with my Bible study group. They were a bit vague but this may have been cultural, and perhaps would work better in an American context.

Despite all this, it is encouraging to be reminded of God’s promises. The book is easy to read and well written and does contain some good stories.

Overall a good read.
