Max on Life by Max Lucado

Max On Life

Answers and Inspiration for Today's Questions
By Max Lucado
Published by Thomas Nelson

I have to admit I have never read any of Max Lucado's books before, and he sure has a lot.  So, it was out of curiousity that I agreed to review his newest book Max on Life.  It was a very fast read.  I can  see why people love his books so much.  His book covers a great deal of questions and topics.  The subjects are conveniently broken into chapters.  Max also approaches each question as if he were talking the to person directly.

Having said that, I have to be honest.  While the book wasn't all that bad,  it just didn't "do" much for me.  I can see how it is helpful to new believers or non-believers, and those who may not get thorough preaching in their church.  While Max was gracious in his answers, I felt he could have been a bit more direct in some of them.  I honestly was hoping for more depth to the answers.  I also felt there were some theology that was a bit off.  If you are looking for a book that will truly guide and direct you to a deeper walk with God, then this is really not the book.  If you are looking for a coffee table book or conversation starter, then go and grab yourself one.

Coming up with two hundred words to use in this review is a bit hard.  Like I said it wasn't a "bad" book, just wish it had more depth.  Max on Life didn't dampen my curiosity about Max Lucado and his other books.  I may check more out one of these days.
