Max On Life

In his many years as a pastor and author, Max Lucado has been on the receiving end of many questions. In his latest book, MAX ON LIFE, he tackles 171 of those in a wide variety of topics. With a compassionate, straight-forward, and knowledgeable approach, Max uses Scripture, examples, and common sense to answer in an honest and simple manner. The questions are divided into the categories of Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Hereafter, but there is a convenient Topic Index in the back to help find a more specific area you wish to explore. This is a very "user-friendly" guide to those who want a straight answer to a simple question.

To be perfectly honest, this is not my favorite of his books. That being said, Max Lucado remains one of my favorite authors. His way of sharing a story is one that allows me to more fully comprehend the life of Christ and His teachings. The Study Guides that are incorporated are truly a blessing! However, this is not that style of book. This is a straight-forward Questions & Answers book that I would recommend for those who like to have a reference book to help with their own, or the questions of others. I have read some that left me even more puzzled, but Max has the knack of explaining things in a manner that nearly anyone can understand. I would recommend it to others, especially new Christians and seekers who want to know more of Christian beliefs in everyday living.
