    This is the first Max Lucado book I read and I was hooked on this author. He has written many new books since and each one is inspiring.

    The first chapter in this book is called "Hurricane Warnings" which caught my attention. The author compares the storms of life to hurricanes, and advises readers to "anchor deep", in order to make it through the storm. This book is one of the tools he offers for anchoring deep, and reestablishing a firm foundation in Christ.Anyone familiar with Max Lucado will know that he uses insightful stories and analogies to drive his points home. He refers to the three "Big F's" on the human report card: futility, failure and finality. Burdens that weigh us down and slowly suck the joy out of our lives. Max writes about coming to Christ to find rest and anchoring our lives in the truth of what took place, six hours, on the cross.

    Every time I read a Max Lucado book for the first time, I wonder what took me so long to get to it. This book is no exception. Lucado points out that the failures in our lives, the faults we see in ourselves, are part of a broken creation - but they DON'T change our worth in God's eyes. He illustrates Bible passages in a way that hits home - drawing parallels between current events and those that happened 2000 years ago. It's a must read for those suffering from depression, from anxiety about life, or any number of worries that are causing you to be stressed and feel unworthy or unloved.

    Dreading with your life? Read this. Max incorporates the eternally powerful words and events in the life of Jesus with ours, I mean the life of a common person. This is no self help book. This helps the hopeless to look upon Jesus who hang on the cross for Six hours, One Friday. What happened that time, can happen in your life too...

    This is a great book to read around Easter time. I've never understood his death as much as I did after reading this book. It brought a new meaning to Easter for me. The book I have is a three book set.

    Max Lucado seems to be more of a novel writer. Didn't like his style of writing. He seemed to be bouncing everywhere on different subjects. Haven't read any other books by him. Really didn't like this one.

    This book gave me the chills several times. It is a short and easy read, but it says so much. As always you come away from this book with a renewed sense and better understanding of how much Jesus loves us, and the knowledge that if you are saved everything really is going to be ok.

    Good book - would make a good Bible Study book."My life is not futile.My failures are not fatal.My death is not final." p.174

    The most life changing book I ever read. I re-read it every Easter. Have read it at least 11 times. Love this book.

    Max Lucado - read early in my walk. = encouraging, but sometimes a bit fluffy.

    Max has a talent for bringing Christian theology to the average person through personal stories blended with Scripture. A couple friends and I started this late last winter as a Lenten Bible study, and decided to take our time with it, thus it took about six months. However, the 'Six Hours One Friday' are relevant any day of the year. Don't let the copyright date fool you - there is nothing outdated here!

    Max Lucado books never lets me finish without learning something. I've learned so much from his experiences and meditations. The self reflection guide at the back of the book for every chapter was very useful as well. I even used them for my daily devotions.

    We have a family tradition of reading this book the week before Easter every year and have done so for about 15 years. It has not lost its impact after all this time and I eagerly look forward to reading again with my family this Lenten season.

    I loved the way Max Lucado wrote this. It's easy to read, easy to understand, and has a very clear message. This book was a great read.

    Good book, helps you learn more about the love God has for each of us. Hope came into the world and now we must share the hope of Jesus Christ with others.

    Is death really the end, or is it the beginning? What did the crucifixion of Jesus Christ mean for that ultimate question? Can there be real hope in it all?In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado takes on these questions and more. Using stories from life today and biblical ones, sometimes blending the two, he illustrates that “my life is not futile, my failures are not fatal, and my death is not final.” The book includes an extensive study guide.>>>While I related to many of the concepts and to Mr. Lucado’s presentation style, I didn’t quite get the way he presented all of the information. Some of the storylines weren’t complete or didn’t obviously connect to the overall message. Or so it seemed to me. I may have missed something.But it did minister to my heart in a way I needed with the still fresh sting of my dad’s passing. Death is not final, thanks to six hours one Friday long ago. P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Sneeze, but was not required to write a positive review.

    Max Lucado is my favorite Christian author and this is another good book by him! Like all of the books I have read by him, this was a quick and easy read! This book kept me interested just like all of his books I have read! This book, like most of his books, includes a study guide at the end. I recommend this book! I look forward to reading more of Max Lucado’s books!Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program.

    Max Lucado is a storyteller. No deep theology here, no exhortations. His specialty is showing biblical stories and teachings through a present-day lens. "Six Hours One Friday" is loosely tied to the events of Good Friday. He shows us the passion and the compassion of Jesus through Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, the Centurion and many other figures of the Gospel accounts. My favorite chapter, "The Sparkle from Eternity," is a little classic in itself, I think. It's a retelling of the story of the raising of Jairus' daughter (Mark 5), with Jairus recast as the pastor of a wealthy church and the woman who had a hemorrhage as an African American woman with AIDS.

    This was book just wasn't enough for me. It was useful and good enough; however, it isn't on the same plane asBlue Like Jazz . I think because I have a fairly deep thirst for opinion and belief and have a lot of patience for DEEP dives into Christianity and faith... AND because the first book club book was so scholarly, this book suffers by definition, which isn't fair to it. Unfortunately, despite being helpful (I mean, most of the entire second and third sections were good), this book suffers from its format and organization and left me feeling a little...hungry. I would definitely try another Max Lucado book, however.

    I never thought I'd ever be a book snob, but this one made me realize I must be one. Sorry Max Lucado, I just can't read your literature. I started this book, read the first chapter and hoped it would pick up the pace. After getting into the second chapter, I realized this is not the book for me. Everything I read was congruent with my beliefs, but I desire less emotional appeals in a book as I do deep hard, heart-wrenching, mind-boggling truth that make me think. I suppose this book did all the thinking for me. I'm just not into that.

    A Easter weekend readI have found myself drawn to the books of Max Lucado this Easter weekend. This is the third one that I have read in two days. I was drawn to it by its title and this book didn't disappoint me. It gave a detailed description of what it must have been like in those last Six Hours for Jesus Christ. In the author's form he talks about forgiveness and what to do when your life goes awry. I am going to read this book again and I hope that I never forget it's message..

    The amazing fact of the resurrection and heartbeat of our God, is so assuringly behind these words crafted in this book. I found myself holding my breath reading each analogy ,though repeated reading has worn the book out totally.The assurance that our failures despites our tries are forgiven, the love that made us is eternal is so sweet craved in this assuring words of faith, comforts and restores us in this sometimes accusing world.We then understand the significance of our importance in Whose we are.

    This book was a life changer! Written with real passion for Jesus and the power of the cross. If you don't want to be challenged then don't read this book. If you are tired of doing church and playing at Christianity then read this and be reminded of the power of Christ that we have available to us!

    I love Max Lucado as an author and this book is no exception. He takes stories that we have heard forever and really explains them in a way that makes sense in my life. My Bible Study has used this when we want a quick study that doesn't take much planning since there are discussion questions with each chapter.
