Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

In Outlive Your Life, Max Lucado takes readers on a journey though the book of Acts. The early church lived out their lives in tangible ways that impacted other Christians as well as non-believers. Why should Christians today be any different? Do you want to do something that has a lasting affect? Can anything be done to improve the condition of third-world countries? Should we care about changing our own society? If you want to make a difference in the lives of others, then you are invited to outlive your life!

Every time I opened this book, it was like sitting down with an old friend and having a nice, comfortable chat. This is the fourth book I've read by Max Lucado and, like the others, I was challenged, uplifted and educated. The facts mentioned in the book about poverty and hunger were very sobering. Yet, at the same time, the author always provided a probable solution to challenge and encourage. The author used real-life examples and there was a study guide in the back of the book that provided questions for contemplation as well as ideas for putting faith into action. Because the chapters were not overly long and the author's use of language was enjoyable, I found that this book integrated very easily with my personal devotional time.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
