Max on Life by Max Lucado

Do you have questions about . . .  well, about . . . LIFE?  Does God really care?  Am I really forgiven?  Does prayer really change anything?  How do I control my worries about my children?  How do I get out of a bad mood?

During his years as a writer and a minister, Max Lucado has heard many those and many more.  In Max on Life, he presents his answers to 172 questions, sharing his insights from scripture and from his years of ministry.  The subjects range from deep theological inquiries about heaven and hell to practical, down-to-earth issues like managing hectic family schedules and dealing with finances.

Lucado’s comfortable, conversational style makes reading his books very pleasurable, and this one was no exception.  His “mini-lessons” on life are presented in a very simple manner that can be understood not only by those who are Bible scholars, but also those who have very little background in the study of God’s Word.  This book can be read in its entirety in a short period of time or enjoyed in small doses.

There are a few spots where it seemed that Max’s comments never quite got to a direct answer to the question.  But overall, his responses provide sound answers and valuable food for thought.  I would definitely recommend Max on Life for anyone looking for answers to life’s questions.
