Max Lucado Biography

Max Lucado is a Christian author and writer and preacher. He was born on January 11, 1955 in San Angelo, Texas, the youngest of four children to Jack and Thelma Lucado.

Growing up in a conservative home in a small West Texas town, Max needed much grace from his oil mechanic father and nurse mother. Max hit his teens years and rebellion kicked in. After one specific drunken night, Max had an awakening and began to wonder if there was more to life than parties and chasing girls. It was not long after that when his heart was moved toward the unconditional love of God through a Bible class while attending Abilene Christian University (ACU).

Max returned with passion to his studies gaining a master’s degree in Biblical Studies from ACU. After graduation, Max set out on his mission to communicate the grace and mercy of God he had discovered. His first assignment was as the associate pastor of a small church in Miami, Florida, where he was able to develop his passion for people, ministry, and writing through a column in their weekly newsletter.

In Florida, he also married Denalyn, now his wife of more than three decades. In 1983, Max and Denalyn moved to Rio de Janeiro to help plant churches. During their five years in Brazil, Max continued to write, updating friends and family about their ministry. Eventually Max gathered the Rio newsletters and Florida columns into a manuscript and sent them off to fifteen publishers. After multiple rejections, one publisher finally said yes.

That first book, On the Anvil, was published in 1985. His 34th trade book, Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World (September 2017), is a balm for those who are trying to find peace and grace in a world that is increasingly filled with unrest.

In 2016, more than 80 boxes of Max’s manuscripts, journals and personal correspondence has been curated at his alma mater, Abilene Christian University, as a part of the new Max Lucado Collection to be archived and displayed at ACU’s Brown Library.

His writing has been translated into more than 54 languages, and has been featured in countless national media outlets. Lucado was dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, Reader’s Digest called him “The Best Preacher in America,” and The New York Times named him one of the most influential leaders in social media. In addition to books, Lucado’s writing has been shaped into an additional 20 million products sold, including videos, devotionals, songs, plush toys, greeting cards, booklets, Bible studies, commentaries and theatrically-released movies.
