Max On Life-Max Lucado

Book Description

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.
I can only say good things about this book.  It is a concise and pleasurable read.  It is not a book that needs to be read from beginning to end rather it is a book that can be picked up from time to time and picked through.  A bit of perspective here, a little advise there and whole lot of common sense and guidance throughout.  Max Lucado is a well loved author and theologian who has proven himself to be a thoughtful and intelligent voice in the Christian world for years.  With this book he has used a question and answer format to address his readers most pressing, common and, at times, desperate questions regarding their faith and their personal walk with God.  Mr. Lucado guides his readers gently among some of the more difficult circumstances and questions of faith that inevitably creep up as we endeavor to make our way in an increasingly confusing world.  With gentleness, common sense and a strong basis in scripture Max guides the reader and I personally felt as I read this that my faith was strengthened with each turn of the page.

I hope that if you get the chance to read this book that you will not hesitate to add it to your personal library.  It could prove itself to be a useful reference for those times when you comes across a difficult time in life and find yourself in a crisis of faith.  You just might find that with Max Lucado's gentle words you will not find yourself despairing in the wilderness but rather emerging from that dark place with a stronger faith than before.
