Max on Life, by Max Lucado {Book Review}

In Max On Life, one of the most trusted pastors and authors of our time takes on life’s most important questions. {from the book cover}

Here is another book by Max Lucado that is a must have for your library. With his customary frankness, Max gives bible based answers to some of those pesky questions people have asked you, or you have asked yourself.

Do angels really walk among us?

How should I discipline my kids?

Why do I worry so much?

How do I know what God’s will for me really is?

While reading this book, I added several sticky notes on questions/answers I want to look at again and reference in the future.  An answer that I found really helpful was to the ‘question’: I don’t like the narrow-mindedness of Christians. It is absurd to say that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

I have never really known how to answer that question. I know that God created one way. The bible says Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. But how to say that to someone without sounding the a judgmental prick has always been a struggle for me. After reading Max’s opinion I am now prepared for the next time I need to speak intelligently on this topic.

 Since he does answer so many questions {171} in only 230 pages, some of the answers barely scratch the surface of what could be a topic for an entire book. But they do definitelygive you a direction to go if you are looking for more meat on a particular issue/question.   In the book there is a topical index and a list of scriptures referenced in the book with the page they of the book they are referenced on.  I found this to be very interesting to flip through while checking this book out.

We have questions. Child-like inquiries. And deep, heavy ones.

In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has been the receiving line for thousands of such questions. The questions come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. In Max on Life he offers thoughtful answers to more than 150 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt, from home to the hereafter.

Max writes about the role of prayer, the purpose of pain, and the reason for our ultimate hope. He responds to the day-to-day questions—parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships—as well as to the profound: Is God really listening?

A special addendum includes Max’s advice on writing and publishing.

Including topical and scriptural indexes and filled with classic Lucado encouragement and insight, Max on Life will quickly become a favorite resource for pastors and ministry leaders as well as new and mature believers.  ~ From the Publisher ~
