Max Lucado is known for his amazing insight into the gospel of Jesus Christ, his ability to connect to readers on a spiritual level, and his unassuming way of inspiring us. In "Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions," he once again shares his inspiration answering numerous real life questions with love, thoughtfulness, and scripture. What I loved about this book is that it answers real questions from real people. Max Lucado does not try to "preach" or "convert" with his answers, he just gives inspirational answers based on his understanding of the gospel of Christ. I think this would be a great gift to give a graduate, as a wedding present, to new parents, or to anyone who is struggling with seemingly unanswerable questions. Max Lucado seems to have a genuine love for his readers, and for Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. That really shows in his writing, especially in his answering tough questions for this book. I really enjoyed this book because of the variety of questions answered, such as "Is God willing to use anyone to change the world? Even people who've lived ungodly lives?" and "I applied for a job and got rejected. I asked my grandmother for a loan; she turned me down. My boyfriend says we should split up. I'm having a hard, hard week. Is God even listening to me?" and "I grew up in a home with no discipline. My parents let me do anything I wanted to do, and I did. In raising my kids, I don't want to follow their example. I don't want to over-discipline either. What is the balance." And many, many others. I believe that anyone could find something relevant to their own lives in this book.
