Whenever I get a chance to read anything written by Max Lucado, I jump at it. Max has a way of writing that is relaxed and at the same time very challenging. He makes me think and he will make you think too!
“Outlive Your Life!” is an easy read as far as the style goes, but it is a challenging read as far as the content! This book is what I would call a modern day journey through the New Testament book of Acts. As we journey with the early followers of Jesus, in their attempt to live out the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we are challenged to discover and live according to those same principles in the present day reality that we know as life.
Like most of Max Lucado’s books, this one is filled with personal stories and lessons of life that Max has learned along the way! For any person that has ever wondered, “What difference can little ole me make in this big ole world?”, this book will help to answer that question by giving you the tools necessary to build a life that will outlive your life.
This was a very interesting book, filled with the truth of Scripture, which is made applicable to our every day living by helping us to address life right where we are living at this very moment!
As I read each chapter, I found myself challenged by the very simple reality that I was created to be and do more! I found myself becoming inspired to not just think about it, but to actually start taking the steps forward to move my thinking into action. At the back of the book there is a section filled with discussion questions from each chapter, which would make this a great book to read, study and discuss with a group!
I highly recommend this book and challenge people to read it with an open mind, surrendered heart and a willing spirit. If you do, you will “Outlive Your Life!”
