Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado is a timely and powerful message to our generation.  Turn on the news and you are instantly overwhelmed by the good that you think you cannot do,but Max assures his readers otherwise.  His premise is that you and I can be the world to one person even though we may not reach the entire world.  What we do with our lives matters and wherever we are place is where we should wholly invest ourselves.  By beginning the book wondering what people will say at our funerals, he sets the stage for some life-changing pondering. 

Mr. Lucado's masterful retelling of well known bible stories within this context as examples really brings to home the timelessness of God's will for our lives- that we should be Jesus to others.  His voice, as always, rings true with grace and humor thrown in for spice.  I highly recommend this book to any person of any age who wants to make a difference in the life they are living without going off to search for a new one.  Making it real with scripture and recommended prayers at the beginning of each chapter really invited the reader to own the truths between these covers.  Check it out!  You will not be dissapointed.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided to the blogger in exchange for an honest review.
