_ From the author’s website:

Max On Life, Answers and Insights to Your Most Important QuestionsWe have questions.  Child-like inquiries.  And deep, heavy ones.  In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has been the receiving line for thousands of such questions.  In Max On Life he offers thoughtful answers to more than 150 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt, from home to the hereafter.  He responds to the day-to-day questions--parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships--as well as to the profound:  Is God really listening?


Presented in an interesting format, each page is a question or statement that desires a response. Max Lucado answers in a short, concise, conversational method. The chapter headings are alliterated titles: Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, Hereafter. An index in the back of the book offers a further delineation of topics. His final offering of advice is to writers, encouraging them to find God’s voice in their writing and share it with the world.

As is expected from Max Lucado, the Biblical wisdom is sound and encouraging. His voice shines through each page, giving the reader the feeling of sitting across from Mr. Lucado, holding a conversation. He uses Scripture to build a foundation for the reader to search a little deeper into God’s Word for strength and solace.

I am still reading and digesting the food for thought and soul within these pages. Using it as a quick devotional in my homeroom high school class has opened some great discussions with the students. This is the type of book that makes an excellent gift for a friend or loved one needing some encouragement. It is also a great tool to reach someone who might be closed to listening to advice from God’s Word, but open to reading someone else’s questions and finding answers.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson through Book Sneeze for free.
