Outlive Your Life - Max Lucado

I have to confess: I judged Max Lucado. I've never been a big fan of the (what I considered) Christian "self-help" books. They were usually filled with cliches, numbered lists about how to improve your life, etc. So, when I received an opportunity to review a copy of Max Lucado's latest book, Outlive Your Life, I was hesitant to even request the book. I am thankful I did. I was pleasantly surprised, and almost feel like I should send an apology to Mr. Lucado (!). He has written a Scripture-based book that is a challenge to all Jesus lovers. I am passionate about social justice and I tend to be very compassionate. So, with that, his book spoke directly to my heart.

I sincerely hope his message penetrates the hearts of the church of America. When I read the title, I was sure the book was going to be lists of ways to get closer to God. I love that Lucado equated outliving life with loving people as they are Christ. I am looking forward to reading more of Lucado's books, and I owe him a sincere apology!

I received a review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program, thank you! My review is filled with my thoughts and opinions; I was asked to be honest about my experience with the book, and I was! :)
