Two disclaimers (one standard, one not so much): first, I did in fact receive a copy of the book in exchange for my review. Even cooler is that it was an Advance Reader’s Copy/Uncorrected Proof. But it in no way swayed my review. Second, and this is slightly embarrassing (and pretty funny, actually): it wasn’t until I was a couple chapters into the book that I realized my confusion about the writing style, which was that in my mind I was confusing Max Lucado with Frank Peretti.

But to the book. Glory Days is a comparison between the Israelite’s time in the wilderness to that of entering Canaan, the Promise Land, and how it can parallel our own lives…we’ve come out of Egypt, but we live in doubt…we live in something less that victory…we live in something less than the life God has for us.

Israel knew victory. Once they entered Canaan, they were unstoppable: conquering seven nations, at least thirty-one kings, and claiming about ten thousand square miles of land in seven years, despite being outnumbered and inexperienced. But it hadn’t always been that way. For a generation they wandered in the wilderness rather than being led directly to the land that God had promised them. They weren’t ready.

Perhaps you feel like you’re wandering in the wilderness. Trust me, you’re not alone. We all–if we’re truthful–have those times. But just like Israel, the story doesn’t have to end there. The wandering can end, and you can enter into what you have been promised. You can live in your glory days.
