I’ve had the privilege of reading some of Max Lucado’s previous works, and until now, Fearless and Outlive Your Life were my favorites. However, I think that his latest work, Max On Life, has surpassed them.
I’ve always been a Max Lucado skeptic, because he seemed to be so mainstream. However, I’m now a believer. What I enjoy most of about his writing is that it is simple and pure, and it attempts to connect the reader with the very heart of God.
Max On Life allows the reader to engage in Lucado in a different way. The reader is allowed to sort through all of those troubling issues and questions that we have about our faith that we hesitate to mention in bible study or in our small groups because we are fearful of judgement and receive Lucado’s honest and heartfelt response; all of which direct the reader to experience God in a new way.
This book isn’t one that has to be read chronologically– there are different sections where one can sort and find the inspiration they need for where they are. I imagine that this book will be a guiding light for many as they seek to expand their faith and truly know God deeper than they’ve known before. This book is an excellent gift for anyone- a new believer or a seasoned soldier of Christ who desires to pursue God with their whole heart.
