The Max Lucado Papers are ready for researchers. A finding aid is available on DigitalCommons@ACU and digital exhibits celebrating various aspects of the collection are available on the Exhibits page of our blog.
The Max Lucado Papers were established in 2015 when Lucado designated his alma mater’s Brown Library as the repository for materials documenting his career as a missionary, evangelist and writer. Lucado was the university’s Oustanding Alumnus of the Year in 2003 and earned bachelor’s (1977) and master’s (1982) degrees from ACU.
“It was at ACU that I was found by Christ. I don’t think I found him, I think he found me and literally re-routed my life and my family’s for generations,” Lucado said. “I pray these papers can show some of that story to someone who needs a discovery of grace.”
The Max Lucado Papers contain 153 boxes of materials created or collected by Max Lucado. The four series in these papers house Lucado’s productions (sermons, books, media), correspondence, awards and memorabilia, and merchandise.Additional selected Max Lucado resources from ACU Special Collections and Archives:
