Getting the Max on Life

In Max on Life, Max Lucado sorts take on some hard issues in life. The book format is in the question and answer format. Each question from different people focus on real life issues. The content is divided into seven section each section with questions focused various themes from questions about hope, future, sexuality, death, family, relationships, etc. The book is easy to read, you could take on a question a day without losing the train of thought.


I'll be the first to admit that I'm a fan of Max Lucado. I like his writing style and have most of his books. So when the opportunity to review MAX ON LIFE fell on my lap I grabbed it.
Requesting the ebook edition was the fastest way of receiving the book instead of a three week wait for the hardcopy.
I have to be honest this book is a tad disappointing. I felt some of the answers were a bit passé and glossed over with platitudes. The book assumes the Bible as excepted authority. There are those, believers included, that do not recognise the Bible as the Word of God. Maybe it's because I am from Asia and the book seem to focused on issues faced by the average North American Christian.
