Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.
Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.
UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
Customer Reviews For "Max on Life (Unabridged, 6 Cds)"Write Your Own Review
Max on Life is a collection of responses to questions asked by fans, readers, friends and acquaintances over the years. The questions are wide ranging and the answers usually fairly brief. The questions are arranged in half a dozen chapters all starting with "H" which I think hinders rather than helps (just to throw in a few more H words). While some questions fit into the chapters, other questions really don't seem to fit with the theme. It doesn't really affect the readability although it can be off putting. The short answers make it an easy book to read for a few minutes at a time and come back to later. It's not really a book you'd want to sit and read for long periods. I was quite satisfied with the theology throughout the book and the high view of the authority of the Bible. I would recommend the book to a new Christian, who has many questions about how the Christian life works.
Max on Life: Answer and Insights to Your Most Important Questions Grouped under the headings of Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Hereafter are 172 life questions that either we ask ourselves or we ask of others, followed by clear, Scriptural responses from Max Lucado. Each response is one or two pages long, and includes at least one, scripture reference. This book is a break from Lucado’s “traditional” story-telling writing style, allowing the reading to choose questions that are relevant to him/her at a particular time. While I enjoyed parts of the book, most of the content was fairly predictable. That predictability, however, makes it a useful book to pass on to non-Christians or new Christians who have many questions, because you can be confident that the answers they will find in this book are Biblically sound. The shortness of the responses makes them easy to read, and they will provoke thought or provide comfort. The topical and Scripture indexes in the back of the book will help readers find the answers to their questions. While I have enjoyed this book, and I think it serves a purpose, it is definitely not my favourite title by this author. Got questions, and looking for some thoughtful answers, then yes, pick this title up. Looking for inspiration, then it’s probably not the title for you. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
