Warning — Don’t Read This Book Unless You Want To Be Challenged

Out Live Your Life book coverI love Max Lucado.  As a writer and as a brother in Christ who consistently builds value into the lives of people. I love the style that he uses in his books to bring truth to light. He tells wonderful stories in an almost lyrical way. His work is uplifting and encouraging.

So when I received a copy of Out Live Your Life: You Were Made to Make a Difference to review I was expecting a wonderful adventure full of stories and uplifting words.  But it was not exactly what I expected.

Don’t get me wrong.  Max delivered in his typical flair.  This book is filled with encouraging and uplifting stories.  Some are stories from Scripture, some from modern life and others from Max’s active imagination.  The writing is almost poetic.

But what I wasn’t expecting was that my comfortable life was in the crosshairs of this book.  This book encourages a rather harsh inward look with the aim of a more compassionate outward look.  Out Live Your Life is a challenge to the Church, especially in North America.

The Challenge

There is a movement in the Church today that is encouraging us to look outward to show a hurting world the love of God.  Popular songs such as Give Me Your Eyes or My Own Little World are examples of this movement.  And this is exactly the message that this book is bringing.

But this much is clear: the storehouse is stocked.  The problem is not in the supply; the problem is in the distribution.  God has give this generation, our generation, everything we need to alter the course of human suffering. (Out Live Your Life – pg 6)

The world is full of people in need: hunger, disease, poverty, lack of education, orphans, widows and more.  The statistics are astounding.  What is God going to do about it?

Follow Max on an exciting journey through the Book of Acts.  Watch how God took ordinary people (Joe Pot Roast) and turned the world upside down.  Ask God to do the same with us.  Get your copy and come change the world with us.
