(Nashville, Tenn.) Bestselling author Max Lucado reinvented the daily devotional category with the release of a book entitled Grace for the Moment (Thomas Nelson) in 2000, which has now sold more than 3 million copies in its branded product line.  This year Lucado releases a new hardcover gift book entitled Live Lived: Experiencing God’s Presence in Everyday Life (Thomas Nelson, April 2011).

Like Grace for the Moment, this new devotional book provides daily readings, lifted from Lucado’s most popular trade titles, in a beautifully and colorfully designed hardcover format. 

“I hope this small devotional book dumps buckets of love into each reader’s life,” Lucado comments about Live Loved.  “God’s love is vast and immeasurable. I invite you to take a dip into his deep love daily.” 

Live Loved is divided into five sections that bring God’s love into greater focus for the reader. Each daily reading is concluded with a prayer and several scripture selections. Lucado helps readers discover the breadth and depth of God’s love in each of these areas:

  • Loved with a Steadfast Love
  • Loved with a Perfect Love
  • Loved with a Wise Love
  • Loved with a Merciful Love
  • Loved to Love Others

Grace for the Moment has blessed readers three million times over,” says Laura Minchew, Vice President & Publisher Children and Gift Specialty Books at Thomas Nelson.  “And we believe this new daily devotional from Max will do the same for those same readers — as well as for new fans of Max’s writings. We are proud to add Live Loved to Max’s library of devotional writings.”

Max Lucado has more than 100 million products in print, including 80 million book products, and a publishing career spanning 25 years. Many of his titles have been on national bestsellers lists like The New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly and ECPA. Lucado has been featured on many national media outlets including The TODAY Show, Good Morning America and Fox & Friends in the last year. Max and his wife Denalyn live in San Antonio, Texas, where he is Minister of Preaching at Oak Hills Church. More on Max Lucado, can be found at www.MaxLucado.com.
