Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

Max Lucado’s books have always life-changing for me. He has a way of writing that illuminate Biblical passages and concepts in practical ways that really impact people. I was very interested when I heard his new book looked at how all of us can address social justice issues in a real and personal way.

I really like the book. Lucado masterfully weaves stories of the early Christian church with other stories and illustrations to show how the Bible relates to many issues in today’s world. The chapters are concise and to-the-point.  Each chapter leads the reader through a new topic, such as breaking out of comfort zones and looking at their world with a fresh perspective. Lucado doesn’t offer easy fixes, but shows how even small efforts can make big differences.

I really appreciate the reflection questions in the back of the book. They would be really useful for small groups going through the books together. The accompanying action plans provide practical ways to apply each chapter’s main theme to everyday life.

I would highly recommend Outlive Your Life to anyone interested in making a difference in the world by the best with what you have to make a difference in the lives of others.
