We have questions. Child-like inquiries. And deep, heavy ones. In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has been the receiving line for thousands of such questions. The questions come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. In "Max on Life" he offers thoughtful answers to more than 150 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt, from home to the hereafter. Max writes about the role of prayer, the purpose of pain, and the reason for our ultimate hope. He responds to the day-to-day questions-parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships-as well as to the profound: Is God really listening? A special addendum includes Max's advice on writing and publishing. Including topical and scriptural indexes and filled with classic Lucado encouragement and insight, "Max on Life" will quickly become a favorite resource for pastors and ministry leaders as well as new and mature believers.

Yay! I completed my first Max Lucado book! First, let me say that I really enjoyed the majority of this book. Lucado's straight talk is refreshing and, quite often, insightful. Lucado clearly has a certain knack for supporting others in their faith.

I had two complaints, however. The book is written in a Q&A format. at times, Lucado seems to talk in circles, saying the same things as he has in at least half a dozen other responses, without ever really answering the question. This got to be a bit irritating at times. I know Lucado is a preacher, but it's not a good thing to come across *as* preachy.
Second, I still would have given this book four stars had it not been for the entire last section, which had to deal with the afterlife, mortality, and related questions. Lucado had no qualms asserting that he knew *almost* (with some glossed over exceptions) everything about the afterlife and God's intentions for our souls. After the first five to ten questions, I skimmed through the remainder of that section (and consequently, the book).

Nonetheless, I look forward to reading more of Lucado's work. He quotes scripture faithfully (although I got a bit tired of the translations that change God's Word into a tone more suited to a - albeit educated - 20 something's old's blog post) and ultimately gives hope to his readers and praise to our Lord.

Max Lucado has written about 50 books, and sold over 80 million copies. As a pastor and writer, he gets a lot of questions, so he put some of them in this book. For those who are new to Christianity, it is of particular value. It gives kind of an overview, Max-style, of his take on life.
