Max on Life by Max Lucado

**I received a complimentary copy of this book via in exchange for this review. The views and opinions are my own.**

The first thing that made me fall in love with this book was the simplicity. I would read each page and say to myself, "That's so simple but so powerful." I could related to what was being discussed, empathize with certain situations, and laugh at the humorous points. Such an amazing book.

A little about the book. What Mr. Lucado has done is take questions from readers, answer them, and then publish those results. Questions about the afterlife, parenting, marriage, church, finances, and a myriad of other topics are entertained in this wonderful book.

Yet there is no professional answer; no platitudes. It is Mr. Lucado answering each question as a man; a human being. He does not attempt to go into some deep theological argument on certain subjects. No, he seeks only to make the person asking the question understand the dilemma in which he/she is engaged. For those that have read Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, I would consider this an Evangelical-Christian Alternative to that book. I only hope that this book outsells that book because Mr. Lucado has the truth in his book; Jesus Christ.

Again, a great, but simple book, and a must read especially as a daily devotional.
