I am so excited for today's Book Review and Giveaway!
I was recently asked by Thomas Nelson Publishers to review Max Lucado's latest book, Outlive Your Life. I thought to myself, "Sure, I could give it a try. I like Max's writings."
(Side note: You should know, not everything that I review I recommend. If I don't give it two absolute thumbs up, I don't pass it along).When Max's new book arrived, I was intrigued by the fun cover and the book's subtitle: You Were Made to Make A Difference. I picked up the book to skim through it, and was absolutely blown away. What a powerful, life-changing book! I couldn't put it down!
When John came home I shared,"OK, I have a new favorite book ~ you have to read it!" And guess what, John loves it too!!
Max writes, "These are difficult days in our world's history. 1.75 billion people are desperately poor, natural disasters are gouging entire nations, and economic uncertainty still reigns across the globe.
But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did?
What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. Let's live our lives in such a way that the world will be glad we did...."
Can I get an Amen?? What if we rocked the world with some hope?? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life?! Count me in!!
You will love this book! It's classic Max Lucado ~ brilliant, easy to read but so very insightful, chocked full of beautiful word pictures, and jam-packed with hope, vision, and Truth. I think I'm stuffing lots of Christmas stockings with this book come Christmas.
And, I recently learned Max is donating 100% of his royalties from the Outlive Your Life book and products to World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion. Awesome!
Because I love passing along great, transformational, Truth~filled books to my readers ~ I would love to give a copy of Out Live Your Life, my new favorite book, to a blessed bloggy friend!
