Lucado's answers to life's hard questions

  • Apr 18, 2011
  • by

Max on Life by Max Lucado is the popular minister/author's answers to some of the real questions people ask him. Lucado tackles some of the really hard questions about life: why doesn't God answer my prayers? how do I forgive someone who refuses to acknowledge the pain they cause? what's the point to prayer if God has it all planned out anyway? and many, many more. Lucado uses his usual folksy charm and conversational tone in answering these questions. Sometimes his answer only seems to cover the surface of the question, but most of his answers are inspiring and encouraging. He uses Scripture to back up his answers, giving them additional weight. The book is like taking all of your hardest questions to your pastor, with touches of humor, warmth, and compassion. It's a terrific book for those firm in their faith and those who are at the beginning of their faith journey. Max on Life a book to read and then pass on to a friend, because everyone has asked at least one of these questions, and Lucado's answers are real and relevant.

About this book


We have questions. Child-like inquiries. And deep, heavy ones.

In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has been the receiving line for thousands of such questions. The questions come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. In Max on Life he offers thoughtful answers to more than 150 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt, from home to the hereafter.

Max writes about the role of prayer, the purpose of pain, and the reason for our ultimate hope. He responds to the day-to-day questions-parenting quandaries, financial challenges, difficult relationships-as well as to the profound: Is God really listening?

A special addendum includes Max's advice on writing and publishing.

Including topical and scriptural indexes and filled with classic Lucado encouragement and insight, Max on Life will quickly become a favorite resource for pastors and ministry leaders as well as new and mature believers.
