Max on Life by Max Lucado

In this book, Max Lucado shares answers from God’s Word and his experiences as a husband, father, pastor and author to questions that he has received. The topics are grouped into the categories of Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots and Hereafter. He also has a small section at the end about writing.

Max Lucado has been a pastor to many people through his books. His books are welcomed for the insight and encouragement that he shares through God’s wisdom. His writing is very reader friendly. It’s like you are enjoying a cup of coffee across the table from a kind, older mentor as he speaks godly love, guidance and correction in to your life.

As I read, I was reminded of the importance of prayer, comforted as I am dealing with a loss, encouraged as a parent, and challenged to reach the lost. The book could be read straight through or even used as a devotional. Also, since the book concludes with a topical index and a scripture index, it could be used as a resource to search when specific issues are being dealt with or specific questions have been asked. A few times I was a little confused because it seemed like his answer didn’t quite answer the question. However, maybe he was just trying to be a little more general so it could apply to more people. I do like that Max Lucado includes so many scripture references with each question.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. Be blessed, be encouraged and live for the Lord!
