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.

A beautiful piece of art
4 stars By Mariquita, Oct 19 2016
This is a beautiful book that is beautifully illustrated. It is about a boy who goes on a holiday near the beach. He sees God in the nature around him. The book is a lovely reminder of how God is present in the nature that surrounds us.

A Beautiful Book!
5 stars By Karen, Jul 01 2014
What a beautiful book to share with any child, but especially little boys.  The message of God's unending love is conveyed in such a precious way.  This book would be a wonderful gift for a family on the Christening or Dedication of their child, and I think it would serve a great purpose if given to 'non-Christian' families who choose to Christen their child.  Max Lucado has done a great job of explaining the extent of God's love for us in a way that even young children can grasp, whilst highlighting loving family relationships and the extravagance of Creation...Recommended!
