I have been a long-time fan of Max Lucado's work, and this book lives up to the expectations I have of his works. In Max On Life, Max answers many questions he has received on topics such as marriage, prayer, etc. whether by email, letter, or face-to-face, from a Biblically grounded perspective. What results is a book that probably everyone could find something that is helpful to them in. It is peppered with humor, as are all his works, but it overall conveys both the author's and God's love, compassion and concern for all.
I found this book very interesting, entertaining and enjoyable. I also found it very applicable to my life in several areas. This book is both fun to read and very practical. I think I will return to this book often because of the pearls of wisdom Max includes in it, about many topics I struggle with on a regular basis, such as prayer, temptation, and irritation. On irritation Max writes, "Every pearl is simply a victory over irritations." I know that I will think of this often, when I wear any of my pearl jewelry!
I think this book is wonderful, and would be a great gift for people in all stations of life.
