"Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions."
This book deals with questions that fall under the categories of Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Hereafter. It deals with topics like grace, calamities, sex, money, heaven and hell. On the cover, it looks like Mr. Lucado is just sitting back ready to answer your questions and give you advice in such a friendly, nonchalant way. And it's the perfect cover, because his voice in this book is just that: friendly and nonchalant, conversational and not at all long-winded.
You can just sit down and read "Max on Life" from cover to cover, you can open to a random page and skim the contents, or you can use it as a resource when your friends or family members come to you with those hard questions and you need a little bit of quick insight. I definitely recommend this book and, honestly, any book by Max Lucado. He "speaks the truth in love" as God's word (Ephesians 4:15) tells us we should do. If you head over to Amazon, you can read excerpts of the book through their "Look Inside" feature.
I received this book from the wonderful people at Thomas Nelson to facilitate an honest and thoughtful review.
