Book Review: Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

Outlive Your Life is a powerful, inspiring book that outlines the power each of us has over the world. I'll admit that I hadn't considered some of the points it raised and that is was a real eye-oener for me. This book shows you exactly how to use the one life you are given to help people, make a better world, and a better you. Max Lucado does a good job of making his book humble, relatable, and completely unbiased. It was very refreshing to read; it includes a raw and natural way of looking at things. It forces you to look at the world as a whole, noticing the big picture and seeing the bad things as well as the good.

Right from the get-go I liked the book. The texture of the cover is awesome. When I opened it I noticed that one hundred percent of the royalties from this book go to benefitting children and families. That made me like it even more. I loved the use of facts and statistics as well as the beautiful imagery used on almost every page.

I found the Christian references down-to-earth, which makes the book perfect for a new Christ-follower, or someone who is just learning about Christianity. I liked that Max Lucado didn't write it in a in-your-face kind of way, it was more subtle and in the background.

I would definitely recommend this book; I have already given it to my brother to read. If we could learn from this book, the world would be a much better place
