Format: Paperback
You were made to make a difference, is a book aimed at youth for around ages 11-16. Max Lucado has co-written it with his daughter Jenna to help make it it more relevant and applicable for the target audience. The book seeks to impart to the reader that God is real, and active in the world and as a result of passages such as Psalm 139, we can know that God wants to know each one of us intimately. I wish I had read this book when I was younger; it has certainly suceeded in making me think about my own personal evangelism and my motives for doing what I do.

The way it does this is by using case studies of young people from around the world who have had a small idea and changed the world in a big way. The most notable example is the boy who was raising money for charity through basketball and from there has now set up and established his own charity.

The youth camp I am involved with are planning to give this book to each camper this year, such is the impact it has had on me. If you are struggeling to convey to your young people that Jesus' love for them is real, and is more than an hour on sunday thing, this book is a must for you. In addition to this, there are bible verses scattered throughout it, space for notes in repsonse to what the reader has read, and animations and pictures to keep the readers attention. All in all, a very well thought out book.

If you don't want to be challenged to the core and moved to action, DON'T read this book. Rather go to Argos to pick up a catalogue and plan your Christmas shopping. Seriously! Even a person with the hardest heart imaginable will be moved to tears within minutes of reading 'Out Live Your Life'. The first two and a half pages, before chapter one even begins, gave me goosebumps! The first chapter caused me to start the Human Trafficking section of my blog [...] because I had no excuse not to. My selfishness has been challenged to the core and my excuses have been obliterated. I don't know when last a read a book that has impacted me this much and so have decided not to tell you too much more about it, so that you will get a copy for yourself.

Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado, certainly met my expectations. When I read the opening chapter, in which Lucado addresses various world issues requiring our attention, I thought the book was going to be one big guilt trip, but it wasn't at all. The book isn't condemning in the least, but has the potential to provoke its readers into taking action. Lucado is positive and encouraging, and demonstrates that even the smallest act can change one person's life for the better.

Outlive Your Life is both readable and accessible. Each chapter is short but sweet, and follows a similar format. Lucado focuses on the book of Acts and the ministry of the apostles, suggesting how we too can administer to the needs of others in our daily lives. Outlive Your Life is a truly inspiring read, full of achievable ideas about how we can glorify God by serving people in need. The book contains a Discussion and Action Guide to encourage us to put what we've just read into practice. I came away from it with a real passion to do my part, and fully intend, in the coming weeks, to find out where my help is needed.

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.

Fantastic book for new Christians and old ones alike. Max Lucado can make me laugh and cry in the same sentence. Max has a great way of being both common and down to earth and get you looking at the stars all at the same time. Buy it!!

Format: Paperback
Max Lucado is a story teller. It comes naturally to him - using language to evoke feeling and emphasise his point. Here, in Outlive Your Life: you were made to make a difference, he uses this story telling once more.

The book is loosely based around the book of Acts. I say loosely, because although intially it promises to immerse the reader in the story of the life of the new church, in reality each chapter takes a text as its theme. The idea behind the book is that we can outlive our lives by making a difference to others.

I very much appreciate this premise, because I myself have a passion for making a difference - in whatever way we can. So I was keen to read this, although these days I tend to find Lucado books not as challenging as I would like.

I have to confess to being a little disappointed. Although I appreciate what he is trying to do, the chapters seem almost like a collection stand alone sermons (complete with illustrations) than they do as part of a whole. A book, in my opinion, needs to lead you on and draw you deeper. For me, this was simply too bitesized. And although I too like playing with language to make a point, Lucado can be a bit repetitive and in the case of retelling biblical stories, rather too keen on embellishment of detail. I like to be drawn into a story and to use my imagination, but occasionally I felt he took this a bit too far in his descriptions. Once you start mentally disagreeing with descriptions or finding them too detailed, your attention to the main point is lost.

And that, I think is the problem. The book is too cluttered and does not hone itself, does not weave itself around a central point. The introduction promises but does not deliver.
