Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado ~ Book Review

Perhaps it was bad timing.

I got into a reading frenzy of reading about how to radically change the Christian Walk to make it more of a "living" and less of a "studying."  Max Lucado brings his book, "Out Live Your Life; You Were Made to Make a Difference" into that mix.

Perhaps I should have taken a break from the others before reading this one.  Lucado does a fine job of presenting very valid and motivating reasons why our lives should really be different and how they can make a difference; a REAL difference.  The content of the book is good.  Probably really good, but I wasn't able to get past some of the verbiage that made me almost feel as though it was too simple.  I like to be challenged and this didn't really push me.  Again, I think it may have been because I had already been challenged by about 5 or 6 other books that were similar in message.

If you enjoy Max Lucado, I would recommend this book.  Even if you don't know him well, I think this book is worth reading, though I think others are a step above.

I was not compensated for this review other than the free book from the publisher.


  1. I read this book too and found it good, but have enjoyed others more. He writes so many I sometimes think it is hard to have new material. I am not an author so not sure I know....but...like you said the book is good.

  2. Max challenges us to live lives that changes the lives of others, through service, giving, and love. Don't be people who just talk about doing good; actually go out and do it.
