Max On Life Book Review

Book Review of Max On Life by Max Lucado
"Answers and insights to  your most important questions."

     Max Lucado has always been a thrilling and eloquent writer.  This book proves that fact once again.  In his latest offering, “One of the most trusted pastors and authors of our time takes on life’s most important questions.”  Lucado responds to questions that he has been asked over the years, and adds a mix of his own - one hundred seventy two to be exact.  Questions are posed, for example: “Does God lead us through feelings? When people say, ‘I sense God’s guidance.'  What are they discerning?” There are naturally many, many more questions inside this book.  The book is broken into topics, like: hope, hurt, help, home, hereafter.  Each topic has many questions, and the preceding answer.  When Lucado does not have the specific answer, he always points back to Scripture to lend a hand in uncovering the truthful answer.
    I believe this book has the power within it’s pages to be tremendously important within our communities.  I’ve been a believer for many years, and this book touched on questions that have been withstanding in my mind for a long time.  It’s refreshing to receive factual, truthful answers and insight, backed by Scripture every time.  The dearest portion of the book to me is the addendum listed in the back of the book, entitled “The Write Stuff.” Lucado addresses an audience of aspiring writers and authors, giving them encouragement, sound advice and the strength to pursue their craft.   I would like to speak for prospective writers, that this support is like honey for a hungry soul.   I endorse this read fully, and think that it will be accepted in our modern community with open arms.  Who out there doesn’t have a deep rooted life question that needs answered?
