In Max Lucado's work "Max On Life", Max takes the reader through a smorgasbord of questions that any of us might ask during difficult times. Questions concerning how to live in response to hard circumstances and how we view God in light of these circumstances. Many of these situations can seem overwhelming when we are in the midst of them and Max uses Scripture and his life experiences as a pastor to help readers see through them to the underlying truth.
For those looking for indepth answers this is probably not the book. The book covers many questions and sometimes the answer is just a page in length. That's fine to get someone on the right track to looking deeper into an issue or to help someone renew their mind with the truth. For those who are really suffering with a particular circumstance this book would probably not suffice and they should seek advice from a pastor or close Christian friend.
A big question for many is Scriptural truth. As with all teachers no one ever agrees with every word. I've never heard Max teach anything heretical but it is up to each of us to be a Berean and search the Word for ourselves to see if it agrees with what is presented.
