I just finished reading Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make a Difference by Max Lucado and I LOVED it. I have been a fan of his since I was in high school and while all of his books follow a similar format, this one is so no exception, but the content is refreshing.
Outlive Your Life is based on the book of Acts. I love his character portrayals of the early disciples. Max can paint a literary picture like no one else. He uses the actions of disciples like Paul and Stephen as examples of how we are to live our lives for others. At times it reminded me of the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, but where Crazy Love can often guilt you into actions, Outlive Your Life inspires us to action. The difference is amazing.
