Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make A Difference
Thomas Nelson / 2010 / Hardcover
On Pentecost, the Spirit came down and ignited the hearts and minds of believers to preach the gospel and live out justice for the forgotten. Max Lucado wonders, Might it happen again? Does God still free hearts, minds and bodies from the ravages of sin and poverty? The answer is yes! He does it through you, and in Outlive Your Life he challenges you to make a difference that will last beyond your time on earth. Take a stand for children, widows, and families who only need an opportunity to live.One hundred percent of the author royalties from Outlive Your Life products will benefit children and families through World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion.
This is a traditional Max Lucado book. He is encourages with stories and had loaded the book with great Bible verses. I read Fearless about a year ago and I, personally, thought that was more for me at that season of my life. I think Outlive Your Life would be great for a college student or someone looking for a ministry that is outside the box. This book may help you follow Jesus more closely. Lucado pulls references from the Bible and then specifically tells you ways to be more like Jesus, or whomever the story is referencing, in modern times.
There is a Discussion and Action Guide in the back of the book that would be great for a small group or book club, as well as discussions with your spouse about things you can do within your marriage and family.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
