In this book, Max Lucado answers questions that people have submitted to him about life, faith, relationships, and well, just everything. Each section has a theme with several questions. Each question is answered succinctly in 1-2 pages.
I really liked that I could flip through the book and find answers to some great questions that I was curious about. I love that this does not read like a text book either. It is personal and easy to read. I highly recommend Max On Life to anyone that has questions related to faith. I would love to keep this book on my shelf for a long time so I can refer back to it again and again. However, I know that if it lands on my shelf, it's likely to get lost. So I had to do the sensible thing and give it away to someone else who will use it again and again.

Hobbs is well-spoken and touches the heart of her readers. She helps look at what is going on in the soul and mind that might make weight loss and healthy living difficult. She gives great practical suggestions about how to face difficulties in our lives that make us rely on food instead of God.
I found this book difficult to read, not because of the wording or the subject, but because I wanted to soak it all in. This was a must - read - slowly book. If I could tell Chantel one thing, I would like to thank her for sharing her personal story and inspiring others to achieve greatness and buy into God's deal for their lives.
