4 out of 5
With the author being Max Lucado you are pretty much assured that this will be a good book. However this book even stands out from other books by this same author. Max on Life is a great read, but it goes beyond that to become a great reference. This is a book that can be kept in your personal library and referred to over and over.
The book is broken into segments that include; Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Hereafter. Each section is made up of questions that are followed by Mr. Lucado’s response. The questions are quite varied, from number fifty-nine which asks, “Does God allow war? If so, how do we reconcile his commands to love our enemies?” to number one hundred twelve which asks, “What should I tell my kids about sex?”
My favorite part about the book, the part that turns it from a general read to a reference, is topical index and the scripture index in the back of the book. You can quickly find a section that you want to refer back to. That in itself makes the book very valuable. Another interesting part is the addendum. It is called “The Write Stuff”. Anyone that is interested in writing themselves should read this. Mr. Lucado has some wonderful words of wisdom for budding new (and maybe not so new) authors.
* I received this book from Thomas Nelson and book sneeze for my honest opinion.
