Book Review – Max on Life

20 04 2011

Title: Max on Life
Author: Max Lucado
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pages: 413 on ebook format

Summary: If you have ever read a Max Lucado book, you know his voice. I can almost hear it in my head – the tone, the words, the compassion. Max has a heart to serve God and God’s people. In his latest book, Max on Life, he answers 172 questions asked of him over the years on a range of topics. Chapter titles include: Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots and the Hereafter. He also provides both a topical and scriptural index of the book, so you can find exactly what you are looking for.

Likes: I always enjoy Max’s approach to Christian living. The truth is the truth. Sometimes we don’t get the answers we want, but God is unwavering. Never is Max’s approach more effective than in just flat out answering the questions. There are lots of tough questions in this book, and Max gives us the answers we might not want to hear, but he gives them in love. The section on the “Hereafter” was one of my favorites. Max wears his compassion on his sleeve in helping people with the issues of death and dying – but still cements himself in the truth of Jesus Christ. In the romance section, his firm answers about love and sex are things to use with your children. This book is not a book just to read, but a book that I will refer to over and over again in my times of hurt and heartache.

Dislikes: Nothing really. I really like this book, and the versatility of the indexes as well as the tone of the writing

Overall: 5 stars. Highly recommend.

Note: I was provided a copy of this book for review as part of the Booksneeze program. All opinions, however, are my own.
