Max Doesn't Disappoint: Book Review of Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

Max Lucado’s latest book, Outlive Your Life, is another great book by Max that shows once again, why he is a leading Christian author. In this book, he challenges the readers to “outlive” their lives by doing works of service to the poor and needy all while giving God the glory. He challenges believers to live like the first church did in the book of Acts, by giving of themselves and helping the less fortunate. He makes some great points about how far the divide is between the rich and the poor in this world, and he encourages people to make a difference, even if they can only do a little. In his signature storytelling style, Lucado shines a light on the needs of this hurting world.

This is another Lucado classic that does not disappoint. It is different from some of his other books because it is a challenge and a call to do what is right and to show the world the tangible love of Jesus. I found it challenging but not in a condemning way. He doesn’t make you feel bad for not helping, but shows you how just doing something can make a world of difference in the life of someone less fortunate.
