Book Review: Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado
When you die, will what you have done in life outlive you? Are the things you are doing in life right now going to make a difference when you are gone? If you want to make a difference in life, even if it is just in the life of a single person then the newest book by Max Lucado, Out Live Your Life You Were Made To Make A Difference is the book that you will want to read.
Taking his cue from the Book of Acts from the Bible, Mr. Lucado, using both fictional and real life anecdotes illustrates many ways to make life count. From simple hospitality and inviting friends and neighbors over for dinner in your home, to making eye contact and actually listening to a homeless person on the street that will come up to you for a handout, you will be shown how doing these and other actions not only emulates Jesus and his teachings, but that you are actually serving Jesus when you do them.
Reading this book is not the only thing to do with it however. In the back of the book is a section dedicated to discussion and action. Each chapter comes with discussion questions to be talked about, and action items to be used as a starting point to go out and simply do. This is not only a great book to go through individually, but will be a wonderful book to use for group study.
If you want to make a difference in life and are not sure how to, then I recommend this book to you.
Please note that Thomas Nelson Publishing has provided me a complimentary copy of this book for my review; however, the opinions are my own. I have not been required to publish a positive review.
