Max on Life by Max Lucado

I knew going in that 'Max on Life' was not a sit down and read straight through book.  It is the type of book that you pick up and scan through to find answers to specific questions.  The answers are mostly taken from Lucado's previously published writings with a few new writings included.

The book is divided into topics that include:
Hope
Hurt
Help
Him/Her
Home
Have/Have-nots
Hereafter

In each section are a series of questions that Lucado has been presented with by his congregation and from readers through the years. His answers often include scriptural references and stories to help illustrate his answer.  This does not dig deeply into the questions, but offers sound advice. I would encourage anyone who wants to dig deeper to do their own research on the scriptures he provides. Use this book as a jumping off place.

One of my favorite sections of the book is titled 'The Write Stuff' where Lucado describes how to start writing, where to get information about publishing and editing. He encourages us to write. To put our stories on paper. Not be afraid of the process.

Overall, this is a good reference book to have in your library.

I was provided a free copy of this book to review through Booksneeze.
