Bestselling author Max Lucado, in his latest book, Outlive Your Life, tells everyone that “You Were Made to Make a Difference”. Through the 16 chapters of this book, challenges are presented in a manner that will literally make you stop and think of how you measure up, and, more importantly, how you can better your life.
Although each chapter will present a unique message of the applied gospel, Chapter 16, titled “Stand Up for the Have-Nots” for me spoke highly of the theme of this book. What you may not be aware of before holding this book is that 100% of the author’s royalties from all of the Outlive Your Life products will benefit the children and families through World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion. Lucado's unique writing style, mixed with his honest perspective on life, creates a book that encourages as it challenges, and uplifts as it subtly chastens. I found I had to ask myself several times why I knew what Lucado was saying, but I wasn't acting on it. Outlive Your Life is a call to all Christians to walk what we say we believe. To move like we say we do. To be what we say we are -- Followers of Christ. I encourage everyone that wants to live their Christian life to the fullest to get this book, as well as Lucado's Fearless, and read them one after the other. You will walk away with a new understanding of God's will for you, I can promise you that.
