This week I had the privilege of reading Max Lucado's latest work, Max on Life. In over thirty years in ministry, Max has been asked many, many questions. Max on Life takes 172 of the most common inquiries and answers them with the wit and wisdom and soundness of scripture that is always found in Lucado's works. Addressing topics such as prayer, grace, conflict, romance, money, and death, this book has something for everyone.
Having been a longtime fan of Max Lucado’s books, I had very high hopes for this one. It did not disappoint. While not every question in the book pertained to me, a majority of them did. They were questions I have found myself asking or attempting to answer for someone else. Lucado’s answers were easy to understand and always backed up with scripture. I enjoyed the fact that each answer was brief and to the point. He never got “preachy” or long-winded. As a parent, I especially liked the chapter on family. I also found great peace in the section about Heaven, having recently lost my mother. This is definitely a book I would recommend to others. Whether you are a new Christian with lots of questions, have walked with the Lord for years, or simply have questions about Christianity, I believe this book has something for you.
I am so confident that you, too, would enjoy this book, I am going to give away my copy. Yes, this is my first giveaway. Since this is a first for me, I'll make it easy. There are just three simple steps to enter ("Special Agent Oso" music is going through my head right now):
