I have read and enjoyed other books by Max Lucado before, and Cast of Characters: Common People in the Hands of an Uncommon God is no exception. It takes characters as famous as Paul and as unknown as Abigail and fleshs out what their stories might have been. It really helped me see Biblical characters as PEOPLE, and identify more with them.
One of the most of the identifible chapters focused on Mary, Martha and Lazarus. It said that Marys tend to have "one foot in heaven and the other on a cloud." I feel like that a lot. It's hard for me to come down to earth and listen.
I recieved a free copy of this book through Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program in exchange for posting a blog review.
