Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado – Book Review for Booksneeze

 I love this book.  I was predisposed to love it, because I really like Lucado’s writing – but, it’s a great book.  Through a study of Acts, the book shows us how we, as Christians, are put here by God to make a difference in the world.  Each chapter begins with a personal story, which leads into a story from Acts, retold by Lucado.  This moves into a meditation on the story, ending with a prayer.  In this way, he weaves the ancient stories of the first Christians into our modern world, and helps us to see how Acts teaches us to make a difference in the world.  There is a discussion guide to go deeper into the issues raise in the book, which would be useful if  read the book in a small group setting.  The icing on the cake is that all of the author royalties will “benefit children and families through World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion.”  If you are a fan of Max Lucado, you’ll love this latest book.

(The publisher provided me with an advance reviewing copy, for free, through Booksneeze.  Free books in return for a 200 word review?  Sounds like a good deal to me)
