Outlive your life by Max Lucado
Thomas Nelson / 9780849946684 / paperback / 212pp / £9.99
This is another wonderful inspirational book from the pen of Max Lucado. After 25 years of writing, he still refreshes the reader with his simple illustrations built on passages from the Bible. The stories may be simply told, but they reach deep into the heart and soul of the reader every time. But as this volume says, we are not meant just to read and enjoy these writings based on the book of Acts, but to act on them, to live out your faith, to make a difference to those around you. As one comment inside the front of the book says, "How to move from Bible studies to Bible doins".
It is so easy to be moved by such a book, but we need to put into practice what we read and the discussion and action guide at the back will help us do this. But, if you think you are not in a position to do anything, because of your circumstances, simply by buying this book will make a difference to someone, because the author's royalties are benefitting Christian mission work. Thank you Max for another brilliant book!
I was given a copy of this book by Thomas Nelson for review purposes, but this has not influenced my thoughts in any way.
