Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.

Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.

UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.

3 stars By Hannah, Jan 19 2015
If you're looking for a Christmas advent devotional, I'd recommend this one. With excerpts from different Max Lucado books, each short chapter (around two pages each) focuses on a different aspect of the Christmas story - God came near, Joseph's choice, Mary's faith, etc - and then finishes with a prayer. I love the simplicity of it but also the fact that a few short musings can make you reconsider the enormity of what God did by sending his son to the world at Christmas. Highly recommend this book.
