Max on Life-Real Answers to Real Questions

Max On Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions

Product Description:

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?

The one thing I liked best about this book was how REAL and HONEST Max Lucado is. He doesn't hold anything back, but he is also gentle with his answers-all of which are backed up with scripture. It is often said that there are no "dumb questions", the only thing that is dumb is not asking the question.
In this book so many of the questions we want to ask have been addressed. The answers are easy to understand and help set your mind at ease.
Sometimes things happen in life that we don't understand and we ask "Why?" For example, one of the questions #66 to be exact: "I applied for a job and got rejected. I asked my grandmother for a loan: She turned me down. My boyfriend says we should split up. I'm having a hard week. Is God even listening to me?"
And the answer....well you will just have to get the book and read it.
This book will be one that anyone can keep and use as a reference as life continues for us and we need to have those answers.
I believe this book will be very useful especially for New Believer's and people who are in counseling groups.
Max has once again done a GREAT job!
