Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

Max on Life Book Review

SUMMARY:  We have questions.  Real, important, and challenging questions.  Questions about sex, finances, and forgiveness.  Unsettling questions regarding illness, suicide, and eternity.  Don't we crave answers to these queries that tug on the deepest parts of our hearts?

Do angels really walk among us?
How should I discipline my kids?
Any advice for my struggling marriage?
Why do I worry so much?
How do I know what God's will for me really is?

     In Max on Life, one of the most trusted pastors and authors of our time takes on life's most important questions.  Max Lucado has received thousands of questions and wrestled with plenty of his own.  Here's hoping that his answers to the questions of others will help you find answers to yours.

REVIEW:  Max Lucado's newest book Max on Life - Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions does not disappoint.  There were only a couple of answers that I thought missed the mark in answering the questions.  But, in usual easy to understand Max-fashion, the rest of his answers and insights hit it out of the ball park.  He uses scripture in different translations to make it easier to see what God says about a particular situation or to answer a difficult question.  Whether you have been a Christian for years or are searching Christianity to see if it is something you want to pursue, I think you will not be disappointed.
