Max on Life

Max Lucado has a knack....an amazing, eloquent talent for making you feel so good about feeling so bad.  Max has an amazing way of revealing our brokenness, our sin, and our worthlessness, and busting through it all with the inspirational, uplifting, forgiving hope that only comes from Jesus Christ. Max’s Book, Max on Life is no different.  Max takes a moment in his book to answer our questions.  He answers the hard questions, the easy questions, and the questions that nobody dares to ask. He answers our questions about salvation, about God, about relationships, about parenting, about love.  He answers them in a loving, hope-instilling manner, full of Scripture, full of life, and full of love.  
What I love about this book is that it constantly reinforces the hope that comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ.   I also love that it embraces the questions you may feel embarrassed to ask- questions about our salvation and our faith.  I also love that it doesn’t mince words:  Max is very straightforward about our sinful nature and our desperate need for Jesus Christ.  But even though Max Lucado is good at showing us our brokenness, he’s even better at showing us our Redeemer.  Reading Max Lucado’s Max on Life gave me a sense of peace and rest in knowing that God loves me and it gave me hope for an amazing future that God has planned.
