Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life
by Max Lucado

In the world outside our own, suffering, sickness, sadness, poor living conditions and death are among the daily experiences our fellow humans face.  Max Lucado provides a new perspective on what it means to be a Christian and live in a world where there is so much hurting.  Readers are encouraged to consider all they have and what they might be able to give to use their life to the fullest for others.

Max Lucado writes in a way that is easy to read, full of lyrical images and flowing words that carry the reader away into the mind of the writer.  The concepts and ideas are prevented in a non-confrontational yet challenging way that causes the reader to consider the impact they could be making in the name of Christ.  With witty stories and illustrations, short chapters and easy to read format, this book easily becomes a coffee table book, bible study or devotional.  Biblical references appear throughout, adding credence to Max's words and giving the reader pause when considering God's true plan and what we who are blessed can do to help.  Most encouraging is the fact that 100% of profits go to World Vision, a noble and worthy cause.
