Key Quotes From Max Lucado
“Because about 15 years ago there was a sabbatical I was able to take and get ahead, I’ve been able to kind of maintain that and stay ahead of the game. And so consequently I have about half of the sermons prepared for, let’s just say, a 12- or 13-week sermon series before I begin the sermon series. And I’ve come to learn that’s pretty unique.”
“All of my sermons are candidates for books. I’ve been accused of having no unpublished thought, and that’s probably true.”
“Knowing that ultimately, eventually, this particular sermon will need to be a chapter in a book, then I just go ahead and type the whole thing out.”
