Book Review--Max on Life

    Having read many books by this author was very excited for the opportunity to review Max Lucado's new book, Max on Life.  The very first question in the book, basically, "How is God's love different from human love?" sparked my interest right away because it is a question that has come up in discussions with the high school girls that I mentor. I was interested to hear Max's answer.  In this book Max answers 172 questions that people have asked him in person or in letters.  Some of these questions are questions that new Christians might have, but others are questions someone who has walked with God for a long time might struggle with.
   One of the things I really like is that many of the answers in this book have scripture to back them up.  Scripture is truth. If someone gives me an answer to something it needs to match up with what the Bible (God) says.  I know that sometimes scripture can be misinterpreted, which is why we need to be careful and read the Bible for ourselves and know what it says.  I like how Max goes to the Bible when giving answers.
    This book is definitely not one you would read in a day.  It is more like a resource to use or maybe something you would read a little bit of each day.  Topics include heaven, family, money, abortion, worrying, prayer and much more.  I like how the back has a topical index in case you are looking for a specific topic and also a scriptural index.

I received this book for free from for this review. The review is my honest opinion of the book.
