Book Review: Max On Life

 I just finished reading another great book by Max Lucado (I just love him!) and he answers some difficult questions in his writings. This book is a bit different from so many others of his that I have read. Yet, this author heralds truth and a great perspective to have on some of life's issues. 

On Fridays I participate in a weekly meme and here's an excerpt from the book:

Page 56: 

"The Greek word for worry, merimnao, stems from the verb merizo (divide) and nous (mind). Worry cleavers the mind, splitting thoughts between today and tomorrow."

Product Description

We 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. The questions come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. 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.
Max writes about the role of prayer, the purpose of pain, and the reason for our ultimate hope. He responds to the day-to-day questions-parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships-as well as to the profound: Is God really listening?

Also included is Max's advice on writing and publishing.
Including topical and scriptural indexes and filled with classic Lucado encouragement and insight, Max on Life will quickly become a favorite resource for pastors and ministry leaders as well as new and mature believers.

My Thoughts:

This is a very encouraging book for everyone. The special writings of Max Lucado's newest book, Max On Life,  offer Bible-based responses to many questions we have in our own life. Questions about disciplining kids, special needs children, struggling marriages, sex, work, and finances. The one hundred fifty questions are conveniently indexed by topic and scripture to allow quick access as a reference resource. If you are looking for someone who is in your corner no matter how you perform, I think  meditating on the answers in this book will reveal the Father's heart for hikers and bikers, and the cowboys and rednecks because God loves all people. Look around and ask God to show you his beautiful work of diversity all around you. His grace will give you rest and answers to some of your hard questions tugging on your heart. 5 * book and special gift book!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Max on Life through Book Sneeze, in exchange for my honest review.
