Max on Life, written by Max Lucado

Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions is a compilation of questions that one might ask themselves (or perhaps you!) about God, relationships, conflicts, romance, finances, eternity, etc. There are one hundred and seventy-one questions along with their given answer! Each question and answer couplet takes up just a few pages at most and the entire book is organized along with a handy Topical Index in order to make it useful and reader friendly.

I found this book to be trivial and disappointing. I felt it was characteristic of the modern Christian “fluff” that is prevalent and easily found and believe that the author could have used his renown and years of written experience to produce something that could have caused much more impact or encouragement to those who would read one of his books. Although the questions are truly ones oft asked, they are also the same questions that authors seem to have “on standby” and I feel that this material is best found elsewhere. But that is just my personal opinion and perhaps you may discover that this book holds the key to queries and questions of your heart and mind which you have always sought an answer to…regardless I still can only give it two stars. 

*This book was gratefully received from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
