OUT LIVE YOUR LIFE by Max Lucado

YOU WERE MADE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
THOMAS NELSON PUBLISHING
Release Date September 14, 2010 

Max Lucado explores how God uses normal, everyday people, from all walks of life to make amazing things happen.  In this book he shares several stories of ordinary people, young and old who have done amazing things.  Each chapter ends with a prayer and scripture mainly from the Book of Acts is quoted throughout.  

This was an amazing quick read with a message for everyone.  Kind of pay it forward theme as makes us understand that even in the roughest economy, like we have now, there are many ways to help others.  It is set up as a perfect bible study including an action and discussion guide.
I love the message from Max on the back cover, it ends with "We are given a choice...an opportunity to  make a big difference during a difficult time. What if we did? What is we rocked the world with hope?  Worth a try, don't you think?"

Excellent review my friend. Mine will go up tomorrow! I'm so excited that Max is coming to our town in October for a revival/concert! I love his writing and can't wait to hear him preach!
