Max on Life

From the Publisher...
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.
Max on Life is broken down into seven sections:
Within those sections there are 172 different questions in a huge range of feelings, emotions, family, God, ect.
I normally LOVE Max Lucado and was very excited about this book, however upon reading it, I was...less than thrilled. Some of the question are answer with a plethora of God's word and bible verses. Then other questions are answered purely with Max Lucados opinion...frankly, I would rather hear God's thoughts on the issue rather than man's. In the aspect of Sex, weather it be abuse or premarital, man is man and will judge, where God will not. I felt a unbalance to the book. The book just isn't for me. I think there are a lot of people out there that would probably enjoy it. I would suggest to my family and friends to check for it at the Library or maybe barrow it before they buy.
