Max Lucado Max on Life

We have questions. Child-like inquiries. And deep, heavy ones.
In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has received thousands of such questions. They come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. In Max on Life he offers thoughtful answers to more than 170 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt and from home to the hereafter.
Max writes about the role of prayer, the purpose of pain, and the reason for our ultimate hope. He responds to the day-to-day questions—parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships—as well as to the profound: Is God really listening?
A special addendum includes Max’s advice on writing and publishing.
Including topical and scriptural indexes and filled with classic Lucado encouragement and insight,Max on Life will quickly become a favorite resource for pastors and ministry leaders as well as new and mature believers.

My thoughts:
I am a huge fan of Max Lucado, so I might be a little partial in my review!  I have always enjoyed the way he shares insight and wisdom.  I 'get' what he is saying, never feel like it is over the top, yet always profound and thought provoking.  I enjoyed the question and answer format of this book.  It was a little different that other books that I have read by him. I like one particular question, though I can't remember the question I do remember part of the answer being that, "A real man leads his wife to the things she loves to do."  I had to think on that for a minute but something about it stuck with me.  I also enjoyed his definition of 'counselor' which, "...means many things, such as friend or helper, two people you need the most when you move into unfamiliar territory...he will come alongside you and fill you with peace and move in your heart as never before."  I like his thoughts about God never sending us anywhere alone and that life is constantly moving and changing and yet the Holy Spirit remains at our side.  I enjoyed the scripture and the thoughts and the positive affirmations.  I would definitely recommend this book.
