I have never read a Max Lucado book that I have not learned from in some way, and benefitted from spiritually. Max on Life is no exception.
In a simple question-answer format, Max Lucado addresses a bevy of inquiries that many of us have pondered. Some of these are really the BIG questions of life – about our beliefs, prayer, relationships, jobs, raising children, and death and grief. Using Scripture for support and a clear, conversational style, Lucado expertly leads us through explanations of some very complex subjects. It seemed like every page offered some application to my own life.
For me, this is not a book to be read cover to cover in a few days, but instead a book to be savored slowly as each question/answer can serve as a devotional moment. A Scripture index provides additional suggestions for reading on each topic. Lucado has a gift for linking these questions, Biblical answers and practical life examples to teach us. A very readable, thoughtful book and one that I highly recommend for everyone.
