Glory Days Summary in Three Sentences
Glory Days looks deeper into the Book of Joshua and explores the vital lessons you can learn from it. It dives deep into the promises made in the book and how it also applies in our lives today. The book discusses why we should stop living in the “wilderness”, how we can move from it, and how we can possess the Promised Land and start living our Glory Days now!
Glory Days Key Lessons
I believe the best lesson you can learn from this book is that we are not meant to stay in the “wilderness” in our lives. We must strive to move toward the Promised Land.
The wilderness represents sinful living. The Promised Land represents righteous living. It is only when we strive to become “Promised Land people” that we can truly live our glory days.
We might face troubles, problems, and trials now, but our best days are still ahead. It is not even just limited in this lifetime, but also in the life to come.

Glory Days Review
Glory Days is written by Max Lucado, one of the most prolific and popular Christian writers of our time.
On Amazon, Glory Days received 4.8 out of 5-star rating from more than 300 readers. If I’m going to rate this book, I’ll be giving it a 4.5-star rating.
The book is just amazing. I love how Max writes. His sense of humor makes his book more interesting and entertaining. Not only that, but the insights are just practical and insightful.
I just like how Max relates the lives of Joshua and Israelites to the lives of Christians today. Though we have lived thousands of years apart, the same godly principles and promises still apply to all of us.
I highly recommend this book. I’ll assure you it won’t waste your time. After reading this book, you will never see the Book of Joshua in the same way again. Each chapter is rich with important lessons that every Christian should learn and apply.
