Outlive Your Life Review  




Outlive Your Life - You Were Made to Make a Difference Review

Book by Max Lucado

If there are Christian non-fiction books that I enjoy reading more than others, they are those that discuss "outliving" your life through following Christ.  While this book was not as jaw-dropping a read for me as Sun Stand Still (which had similar topic material), it is a decent read.  I appreciate that its chapters are divided up into concise segments, which makes this book a better choice for groups.  The quotes and Scripture references in it are encouraging as well.

The only thing I didn't like about this book is that it is written by Max Lucado.  Max Lucado, as Church of Christ, believes that you have to be re-baptized as you continue to sin (this is accurate of his beliefs as far as I know, he can have altered them after the publication of this review).  This is a very crucial point in doctrine where I disagree with him, and doctrinal differences always come through a text somehow.  Fortunately, there was not much to complain of in this book on that account. 

Regardless of my personal differences with the author, there is some encouragement and benefit in this book if you are someone wanting to expand your outlook on life and follow Christ to the fullest.  On that note, I recommend it.

Greetings, Lady Hannah. If that is his view I agree with your theological assessment. Blessings.

I have heard about him several times but have not studied his views.
