I was excited when I came across Max on Life written by Max Lucado. In a nutshell, the book focuses on answering questions that we all have in our daily lives. The questions range from topic for new Christians, to topics on personal struggles as well as biblical advice on love and romance. Flipping through the book, one will find these topics grouped together according to various categories. 

Upon completing the book, I have to say that I absolutely adored Max's writing and the approach that he takes to answer these questions posed to him by readers. The questions in this book are questions that we all have, and in a way it is easy to relate with the strives and confusion that are addressed throughout the book. Max answers each question in a concise, practical manner, sticking close to Biblical truth, supporting each argument with passages from the Bible. The little bits of his personal life and struggles as a Christian, husband and father adds a touch of understanding to the confusion that people often face. 

Max on Life is a great book for both new Christians as well as matured Christians alike. It's a great little compendium to have for those of you who are constantly counseling others and want something to fall back on or to aid you in your task. A collection of short essays, and easy to read passages, this is one book to have for the times when the weight of uncertainty and curiosity get the better of you.

I have had the pleasure of reviewing this book as a courtesy of the wonderful people at
