Max on Life

Max Lucado is a prolific writer who has written more than 50 books. He was named as the best preacher in America by Reader’s Digest. His books are frequently listed on the New York bestseller’s list.

His new book, “Max on life” is a compendium of the numerous questions he has received over time. He answers the questions from a biblical point of view and this provides an excellent reference point for anyone troubled about some aspects of life.

The book is written in an ‘easy-to-read’ format and one can go to any question without necessarily referring to the previous chapters. The most interesting feature of the book is the question and answer format. Although some of the questions may seem trivial, it would amaze the reader to no end that such seemingly trivial questions are those prominent on a lot of people’s minds.

The book has 7 themes containing 30 questions each. The themes are
a.   Hope
b.   Hurt
c.    Help
d.   Him/ Her
e.   Home
f.     Haves/Have-Nots
g.   Hereafter

This book is a must read for young Christians and people seeking moral/biblical answers to a wide range of questions.

NB: Please note that I freely received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I am under no obligation whatsoever to write a favorable review.
