Max on Life by Max Lucado Review

We have questions.  Real, important, and challenging questions.  Questions about sex, finances, and forgiveness.  Unsettling questions regarding illness, suicide, and eternity.  Don’t we crave answers to these queries that tug on the deepest parts of our hearts?

Do angels really walk among us?
How should I discipline my kids?
Any advice for my struggling marriage?
Why do I worry so much?
How do I know what God’s will for me really is?

In Max on Life, on of the most trusted pastors and authors of our times takes on life’s most important questions.

Max Lucado has received thousands of questions and wrestled with plenty of his own.  Here’s hoping that his answers to the questions of others will help you find answers to yours. 

My Take

Sometimes in life we need to take a step back from the situations we are in.  Max on Life has really helped me look at my own life from a distance and evaluate some things.  We all have those questions in life that we want somebody else to answer, or we are not sure who to turn to.  Max Lucado has written a wonderful book that will help many evaluate these questions and answers.  Do I think his answers are right for everybody?  No but I do believe that they offer a stepping stone for somebody who truly is struggling with the instances that he discusses in his book.

As a pastor he has encountered an unimaginable amount of questions and offered guidance to thousands.  Max is hoping that he can touch the lives of those that he can not be near and hopefully help them with their own personal battles of their lives.  While you may think that this book is only for those that are struggling with large issues, Max on Life has something that we can all relate to.  We never know what somebody is struggling with and often times judge them by first appearances.  I recently read a comment about judging a 15 year old girl with a baby on her hip or a man walking down the street with only one arm.  It turned out the 15 year old girl had been raped and the man with only one arm had lost it fighting for our country.  There were several other examples as well but these are the two that stick out in my mind.  I know that I can be quick to judge and I know that I am quckly judged by many as well.  It doens’t always feel great and Max’s book just helped me look a little deeper in myself and know that I need to work on this.

I would recommend Max On Life to anybody who wants to help improve their opinions of themselves or anybody who wants help putting themselves in somebody else’s shoes.
