Max on Life by Max Lucado
You know that moment when a friend asks you a question about your faith that you just can't answer? The one that makes you feel uncomfortable and squirming around looking for an out? Squirm no more. In Max Lucado's new book, Max on Life, Max answers many of the questions that have been presented to him in the last thirty years. With thoughtfulness and insight that is purely Max, he gives us the answers to questions on hope, hurt, hereafter, and many others.
I was skeptical when I first started reading, as many of the questions were pretty basic for a seasoned Christian (such as Who is God? Did Jesus really rise again? Etc). But as I dove further into the book, the questions became deeper and I was hooked. Max's responses are scripturally based and filled with the gospel. After each excerpt, I found myself uplifted and enlightened.
This will not be a book I pick up and reread, but that is not the authors intention. However, it is one that I will not be passing on. It has become a permanent part of my library as a reference for when I can't find the right words to answer those difficult topics. This book has my high recommendation.
To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I am required to mention that Booksneeze.com has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. This in no way influenced my review.
