Summary

Max Lucado invites you to examine the cross, contemplate its purpose, and celebrate its significance in He Chose the Nails. Go ahead and 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 why the hope of all humanity balances on the truth of the claims of the cross. See just how much God did to win your heart.

Ben Holland is the perfect narrator for this book!

Would you listen to He Chose the Nails again? Why?

YES! in fact i will listen to it over and over again depending on where i am with my "walk". If you want to be reminded just HOW MUCH God loves you and what Jesus did on cross...and how we are all just like one or more of the disciples who followed Jesus, listen to this book immediately.

What was one of the most memorable moments of He Chose the Nails?

at the end of the book, when Max says to take all your worries, fears, and look at the cross, feel the velvet red dirt that is stained with Christ's blood...i cried; very emotional.

What does Ben Holland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I felt like he had a deep connection to the material himself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Again, the ending.

Great book! It's a must read.

Such a good book! It's very easy to understand and has such feeling of what Jesus did for us.

The amazing grace of God.

He Chose the Nails will help you to renew or place your hope on God. Ben Holland does a great job narrating the story of Jesus’ sacrifice, the illustration of the beauty and the beast helps you to see that God didn’t see us in our wild present stage but He is working on us. The most memorable part of the story is the criminal petition to be remembered. And the response of Jesus was: Today you will be with me. And the story of the waiting father for his daughter help us to see the prodigal side of us and the everlasting love of God.

One of My Favorites From This Author

Max Lucado truly out does himself with He Chose the Nails. A must read for believers and unbelievers alike especially during the Easter season.
