Book Review: Max On Life

I am a HUGE Max Lucado fan. This is by far his best book ever written. In "Max on Life," Max Lucado takes on 172 questions that he has been asked over the years. Everything from "Who Is God?" to "Why Does God Sometimes Opt For Silence Even When I'm Screaming My Loudest?" to "Exactly Where Is Hell?"

This book is an invaluable resource for believers and non-believers alike. If you are searching, if there's something you've always wondered about, it's probably in this book. Mr. Lucado covers so many different topics. One of my favorite parts is an answer to a question regarding the death of a very young child. Max says, "While we are shaking heads in disbelief, they are lifting hands in worship. While we are mourning at a grave, they are marveling at heaven. While we are questioning God, they are praising God." What perspective!

I would recommend getting this book if you've ever had a question you couldn't answer, or a friend who has lots of questions to which you may not know exactly what to say. The only thing to remember is that when not quoting Scripture (some of his answers don't have any Scripture referenced specifically) that this is one man's interpretation of truth. I tended to agree with most of what he said; I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to review this book.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

I love this perspective, Praising God is what we need to do.
