Max On Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions by Max Lucado is exactly like it sounds. Max answers questions that have been posed to him throughout the years. Max on Life was a very boring book in my estimation, Max provides a middle of the road pastoral response to most of the questions.
Some of the questions aren’t worth including in the book, like the one that asked “why do some women get abortions?”… really? I blame the editor on that one. Better to ask, “Is it ever right to get an abortion?”
Max’s answers though compassionate aren’t really that involved. He is limited on space to just a couple of paragraphs per question. I would have rather seen the top 50 or even 100 questions with better answers than the 170 in the book.
If you are a die hard Lucado fan you might want to purchase a copy. As for me, I’m puzzled about why this books is in print. It would have made a much better blog series, been free to the public, created interest in Max’s other works and in the end achieved a greater purpose.
