Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions

Note: This post is from my previous blog.

In this book, Max Lucado sets out to answer 172 questions, falling under the general categories of: 1) Hope: God, Grace, and "Why am I here?", 2) Hurt: Conflicts, Calamities, and "Why me?", 3) Help: Prayer, Scripture, and "Why church?", 4) Him/Her: Sex, Romance, and "Any chance of a second chance?", 5) Home: Diapers, Disagreements, and "Any hope for prodigals?", 6) Haves/Have-Nots: Work, Money, and "Where's the lifeline?", and 7) Hereafter: Cemeteries, Heaven, Hell, and "Who goes where?". I found a couple of instances where an allowance for evolution/old earth might be seen, but otherwise I didn't find anything I would consider to be theologically incorrect. My main frustration was with how short the answers were. At best, roughly a page and a half was the longest answer given. 

There isn't a great deal of depth, not surprising because of the length of the answers, so I would recommend this book to someone who is fairly new in their faith. However, after 6 months or a year a person who has been consistently feeding on Scripture should be able to handle more extensive works. 

Overall, I'd give this book a 3/5. 

Note: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review from BookSneeze.
