Max On Life by Max Lucado
“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?
A special addendum includes 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.”
I love this book. It’s not a read straight through book, it’s an awesome reference book for the questions you may have as a Christian. There are 7 main categories and each one is filled with a lot of usual questions we have either asked or has heard someone ask. Max does his best to answer them including several scripture verses to back up what he is saying.
You can also turn to the back of the book for a list of Topics covered in this book and also a list of scripture that is used. This is very helpful in quickly finding an answer to a question you might have or that someone has just asked.
My favorite section is the “Him/Her- Sex, Romance, and ‘Any chance of a second chance?'”. it address a lot of questions my non-Christian friends have about casual sex and also gives great advice to the Christian couple who might be struggling with sexual issues between themselves. I found this section the most useful to me now because of a lot of questions my non-Christian friends have been asking me about what God has to say and why He says it.
Another section I got a lot out of is “Haves/Have-Nots- Work, Money, and ‘Where’s the lifeline?'”. It addresses the importance of your job to God, whether you really do matter to Him and if what you’re doing is serving Him. It also talks about balancing job and God and what He would want from us.
I really love this book and I will be keeping it very handy for future reference. I hope you will check out this book. It’s brand new and worth buying. You can find two links below of where you can find it and I would also suggest you visit your local Christian bookstore and ask them to get it in stock.
