Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado September 10, 2010

Filed under: Book Reviews — Jessi @ 8:45 am

Max Lucado inspires us to jump out of the box beyond ordinary and make a difference in the world. He not only shares familiar stories from the Bible that will make you want to Out Live Your Life, but he also gives relevant examples of people in today’s society who are doing extraordinary things for the kingdom of God.

I love the concept of “You Were Made to Make a Difference”, but the book just seemed to lack something. Each chapter has its own set of discussion questions at the end of the book, which would work well if a small group wants to do a study. I really like the idea of discussion questions, but I didn’t have a chance to go over most of them… maybe that’s why the book seemed to lack depth to me. One thing it doesn’t lack is biblical truths and amazing stories that put into practice the concept of “Out Living Your Life”, and it shows us that you don’t have to be qualified to make a difference… “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.”

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
