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.
