Max on Life by Max Lucado

     Max on Life is a compilation of questions sent to Max Lucado throughout his years of ministry and answers. The questions range from those wanting to grow spiritually to those questioning the Christian faith. The questions are organized into topical categories including hope, hurt, help, him/her, home, haves/have-nots, and the hereafter. Included in each response is a personal explanation with scripture references. The book also includes a topical index so that readers can search for a question and answer based on their own questions as well as a scripture index for readers to read and study the scriptures for themselves.

     Max Lucado is a gentle truth giver….an example of “speaking the truth in love” like scripture instructs believers. His answers are based on Biblical scripture, emphasizing the core of the Christian faith: belief that God loved us enough to send His Son to die for our sins and that Christians should continue in His love. While many Christians argue and fight over interpretation of scriptures and doctrine, this book is a simple yet poignant reminder that nothing matters except love. This book is a great read for someone new to the faith since many questions new believers face are answered here as well as anyone wanting a book to savor. The book can be read quickly or one or two questions a day, using the answer and the scriptures given as a jumpstart to personal study.

This book was given to me by Booksneeze for the purpose of reviewing.
