Max on Life

I don't like driving. I really don't like driving while I am alone in the car. But about once a month I have to drive across the state of Indiana for a youth pastor's meeting. In total, I drive between 5 and 6 hours. With nothing but corn to look at, I try to find an audio book to redeem my wasted drive time.

I'll be honest. I wasn't looking for a Max Lucado title. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed his writing and own many of his books. But options were limited at the online library and it was the night before, so I grabbed Max on Life, not sure what I was getting.

What I got was sort of a greatest hits of Max Lucado's books. It was set up as a question and answer for anybody and everybody on topics like faith, family, children and money.

It was mostly stuff I had heard before, but like any greatest hits album, it had some previously unrecorded stuff. And even the stuff I heard before was a good reminder of some great Christian truths.

So, people out there, if you're dealing with an issue and would appreciate a well-thought and gently spoken reminder of truth, I would recommend this book. If you're driving for a while, it comes across like a call-in radio show. Except without the crazy advice. Good stuff!
