Review of Max Lucado's Pocket Prayers

About the books: 

Pocket Prayers (with various authors; Thomas Nelson, March 2016)

Bestselling author Max Lucado has teamed up with six authors to write the Pocket Prayers series for those in need of peace, renewal, rest, faith, hope, joy, direction, serenity, and courage.

Short, simple prayers are very effective, which is why each book in the series contains forty guided prayers and complementary scriptures for any situation, including for:

-Moms (written with daughter Andrea Lucado)
-Grads (written with daughter Andrea Lucado)
-Dads (written with Mark Mynheir)
-Military Life (written with Mark Mynheir)
-Teachers (written with blogger Jennifer Hale)
-Friends (written with Betsy St. Amant)

About the author: 

More than 120 million readers have found inspiration and encouragement in the writings of Max Lucado. He lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy, in San Antonio, Texas, where he serves the people of Oak Hills Church.

I thought this set of books an excellent idea! A family could buy the entire set to add to their library; it would be great to refer to each of them as the need arose! Equally beneficial would be to purchase these books to give as gifts to mothers, fathers, graduates, people in the service, teachers, etc. There are six books in this Pocket Prayers series; each of the books are the perfect size for travel or giving as a gift. These hardback books have shiny covers and glossy pages. They are all easy to read and comprehend and will inspire the reader to open them every day. 
I especially liked the handy size and the quality of the publishing format. I am not a fan of Max Lucado and didn't agree with everything in these books but in this review I will not delve into that. 
I received a set of these books from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I plan on giving away each of these volumes to appropriate people in my life!
