I don’t think you can go wrong reading anything by Max Lucado. I always find his books spirit-filled and insightful. Lucado’s latest book, Max on Life, is no exception. Max on Life, Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions, differs from Lucado’s typical book format in that it doesn’t have just one theme or topic. Instead, it is comprised of 172 questions and answers on various topics. Some of the information is drawn from Lucado’s previous books and some is new to this book. Most answers are contained on just one page, so this book is perfect for those times when you just have a few minutes to read. I think it would be a nice book to read during a devotional time, or to keep in the car to read while waiting to pick up kids.
The questions are organized by topic: Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Hereafter. While I have read several of Max Lucado’s books and have read much on his thoughts about sin, salvation, and other tenets of the Christian faith, I don’t recall reading much from him on topics like marriage and family. I am impressed at how well he stays faithful to the truths of the Bible while always extending compassion and love to those who may have failed in one way or another.
If you want to read good Biblical advice on anything from unanswered prayer to racism in the church to pressures at work to adultery, you won’t be disappointed by this book.
I received a free review copy of this book from BookSneeze. All opinions are my own.
