The one aspect that I most appreciate in this fine work, is Max Lucado’s gift to directly and completely answer many difficult question in a way that does not diminish the truths of faith, but never condescends or scolds or dismisses the question. It struck me as the answer to the UnChristian climate that shadows many Christians.
Max on Life works as a great read for both those who are devoted Christians and those who are skeptical of faith. The format and topics take on that we wish someone would ask about, but too often we remain silent. Realities within the work move from sexual morality to the theology of hell to the use/misuse of Romans 8:28 during a period of suffering.
In spite of this scope, no one subject is short-changed; each one Lucado takes care to thoroughly answer without rambling or redundancy.
Max on Life would be a great teacher, graduation or confirmation gift. I read through it twice, considering familiar territory in new and inspiring ways in both reads.
