He Chose The Nails By Max Lucado

Linger on the hill of Calvary.

Rub a finger on the timber and press the nail into your hand.

Taste the tinge of cheap wine and feel the scrape of a thorn on your brow.

Touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.

Allow the tools of torture to tell their story.

Listen as they tell you what God did to win your heart.

I've always loved Max's biblical sound writings and this was no exception. This book leads me back to the song lyrics "When He was on the cross, I was on his mind..."
How much Christ has done for us that we don't even realize? Sure he died on the cross for our sins, but what about the nails in his hands, the crown of thorns on his head?
This is a very encouraging read, the crucifixion is broken down into different parts to help us understand God's promise in each one.
I would definitely reccomend this book, it will help you realize what God did for each and every one of us on this earth. A really great reminder around this time of year as well as we celebrate the cruicifixion and resurrection.
