Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions by Max Lucado Book Review

Max Lucado is a popular Christian writer and he currently serves at Oak Hills Church. Max Lucado has been asked a number of questions dealing with life struggles and challenges. Max has decided to share the questions and answers in his new book called Max on Life. Max has included 172 questions and answers in this book. The book contains questions and answers asked about finances, forgiveness, hope, hurt, suicide, homosexuality, relationships, heaven and hell, illness, and a whole lot more. At the end of the book, Max incorporated a special section on writing. Max on Life also has a topical and scripture index to help readers relook at a question again.

Here are some quotes from the book:

“Be careful. Don’t make a decision in a storm that you wouldn’t make in calm weather.” (187)

“Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist. Bitterness is the trap that snares the hunter.” (47)

“For in the end, all believers will tumble skyward into the embrace of heaven, where nothing bad will ever happen again.” (65)

An example of a question in the book is: “What does God think of suicide victims? What does that mean for their salvation? For our memories? For our peace of mind?” (208)

Max answered a lot of questions that some Christians would have a hard time answering. He doesn’t sugarcoat the message and what he believes. He applied scripture to each question. I enjoyed reading this book because Max answered a lot of my questions that I had. I found out how to deal with circumstances that we have to endure in this life. Max’s new book will help you look to Christ and his word on how to handle situations in your life.

I would recommend Max on Life if you have any questions about God and life in general. Max does his best to answer a range of great questions that we all have. This book does contain adult and teenager material. It is a great guide to search for answers for our many questions that we may have!  If you have been pondering something give this book a chance and it just might answer your many questions.

“I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program.”
