Max Lucado is recognized worldwide as a best-selling author of practical and inspirational Christian books for children, teens, and adults, but in San Antonio, he is known as pastor of Oak Hills Church. (San Antonio is a large city in southern Texas with a population of approximately 1.5 million residents.)

You Are Special is an especially popular children’s picture book by Max Lucado because of its fable-like illustration of the idea that the love of God is not dependent on how we are labeled by other people but on who we are in God’s eyes.

The Honorable John Corcoran

Our copy was gifted by The Honorable John Corcoran, an author known to many as “The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read,” making us indeed feel “special” by the example of a newly literate adult gifting the joy of reading. It’s never too late to learn to read!

A list of books by Max Lucado is here:

Oak Hills Church is the last stop on Part One of our Texas Author Adventures Trail, and the first on Part Two!
