Descrição da editora
God's greatest desire is to be your dwelling place -- The home for your heart.
He doesn't want to be merely a weekend getaway. He has no interest in being a Sunday bungalow or even a summer cottage. He wants to be your mailing address, your point of reference, your home ... always. He wants you to live in the Great House of God.
Using the Lord's Prayer as a floor plan, Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you. Warm your heart by the fire in the living room. Nourish your spirit in the kitchen. Seek fellowship in the family room. Step into the hallway and find forgiveness.
It's the perfect home for you. After all, it was created with you in mind. There's only one home built just for your heart. No house more complete, no structure more solid:
The roof never leaks. The walls never crack. The foundation never trembles.
In God's house, you're home. So come into the house built just for you. Your Father is waiting.
Popular speaker and writer Lucado offers a meditation on the idea of God as a dwelling place for those who seek God. In this book, Lucado conceives of the Lord's Prayer as God's blueprint for the great house of God, and he uses prayer to describe the rooms of God's house. The book functions, then, as a kind of tour through the great house of God, from the living room ("when your heart needs a father") through the study ("how God reveals His will") to the family room ("learning to live together"). Each chapter opens with a portion of the prayer (e.g., for the living room, the portion is "Our Father"), and Lucado then proceeds to deliver a sermonette about the nature of that particular room in God's house and the activities that take place in that room. For example, in the meditation on the study, Lucado reflects on the teaching that God delivers to believers who are seeking to do God's will. While these reflections might be powerful in their spoken form, the brevity and the shallowness of their written form abandons readers in the foyer.
