Publisher's Description

Dear Friend,

May I share a story that is very dear to my heart?

It's a story of hillbillies and simple folk, net casters and tax collectors. A story of a movement that exploded like a just-opened fire hydrant out of Jerusalem and spilled into the ends of the earth: into the streets of Paris, the districts of Rome, and the ports of Athens, Istanbul, Shanghai, and Buenos Aires. A story so mighty, controversial, head spinning, and life changing that two millennia later we wonder:

Might it happen again?

Heaven knows we hope so. These are devastating times: 1.75 billions people are desperately poor; one billion are hungry. Lonely hearts indwell our neighborhoods and attend our schools. In the midst of it all, here we stand: you, me, and our one-of-a-kind lives. We are given a choice ... an opportunity to make a big difference during a difficult time. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope?

Worth a try, don't you think?

Endorsements

"This may well be Max Lucado's most important book. On your 99th birthday what will you cherish when you look back at your life? Will it be the size of your bank accounts, the extent of your real estate holdings, or the impressive titles you've held -- or -- will it be the people you've loved, the relationships in which you've invested, and the things you've done for God's Kingdom? Outlive Your Life is a roadmap for your life journey that will leave you few regrets and will inspire you to be all that God intended. This is one of those rare books that can change your life." --Richard Stearns, President of World Vision US, author of The Hole in Our Gospel

"What does it really mean to 'love thy neighbor?' Max Lucado suggests that our 'neighbor' is not only the family next door, but also the one struggling for survival on the other side of the globe. Outlive Your Life is an inspirational call for Christians to put their faith into action and reach out to those in desperate need." --Jim Daly, President & CEO, Focus on the Family

"Max is a writer who disguises his genius well-he makes the most profound truth understandable to people like me. And then something miraculous happens. This truth changes your heart and ultimately, somebody else's world." --Kathie Lee Gifford, co-host of NBC's The Today Show

"There has never been a better time for Believers to show God's love, to sing His love to the nations. Thanks, Max, for reminding us that we each are designed to make a difference. Your words bring hope to all who read them and help to those in need." --Michael W. Smith, bestselling Christian music artist

Publisher's Weekly

Megaseller Lucado (3:16-The Numbers of Hope) celebrates his 25th year in publishing with a call to Christians to use "our one-of-a-kind lifetimes and once-in-history opportunity" to "alter the course of human suffering." With his typical folksiness, Lucado uses the first 12 chapters of the biblical book of Acts as a springboard, describing how God uses Galilean fishermen--and each of us--to change the world. Familiar biblical stories--Ananias and Sapphira, the Greek-speaking widows, Peter's dream--take on new meaning as Lucado urges Christians to look beyond their usual lives. "None of us can help everyone. But all of us can help someone. And when we help them, we serve Jesus," he writes simply. Lucado provides discussion questions for group or personal use, as well as ideas for action. The book is the lead item of a wide array of related products, including an audiobook, greeting cards, Bible, children and youth material, curriculum, and gift books. Lucado shows fans both longtime and new that he remains, after all these years, a powerful voice in the call to authentic Christianity. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    I have to admit that at the beginning of this book, I wasn't too excited. I have read my share of Max Lucado books. He often has great devotional insight, but I figured I had heard it all before.

    As I read, I discovered that this book was different. I got into the meat of the book, and I realized that the premise of his book was to live the gospel we preach in tangible ways. You can tell a hungry child all you want that Jesus loves you, but what will that mean to him or her without giving a hearty meal to the child in need? We tend to get so caught up in our own lives that we just don't slow down enough to put into practice what we profess to believe.

    One of the messages that really touched me was when the Apostle Paul was brought up. We know that he was the chief persecutor of Christians, and then Jesus met him and changed his life forever. Lucado pointed out that even those we think are far gone and seem like they will never turn to the Lord should not be the ones that we abandon and say they will never change. We have to keep praying. In fact, as Lucado points out in another chapter, we should pray first, not last.

    This would be a fantastic book use in a small group Bible study or devotional time. There is a discussion guide in the back of the book. But if you are not willing to put action behind what you are learning, you and your group would be wasting your time. One person can make a difference. If everyone on earth believed that he or she could not make a difference, nothing would ever change. He challenges us to be like Mother Theresa who, though dead, still lives on through her tremendous work with the orphans of Calcutta.

    I am using this as a basis for an adult Sunday school class. We are now discussing various mission projects we can do as a group, or as individuals. This can be a life changing book, both for those who read it and for those it encourages us to serve. I would highly recommend it, and have already told several of my friends that this is a must read book.

    Book -Outlive Your Life

    I finally finished reading this Book and I am sad to say that I was quite disappointed with this book.

    Normally I can't get enough of Mr. Lucado's books, but this time I had to start and re-start reading this book over and over. Not that the topic was not interesting, but I found it hard to read as it just seemed like a few of Max's books had been combined into one single book and had a new title slapped on it.

    The only part of the book that got me thinking was the story at the beginning of the book called "Finding Father Benjamin". If I were to pass away like Father Benjamin, would my friends show people the things that I had done... Would they be able to speak about where I lived and what I had done with my life.

    I also did not like how Mr. Lucado took liberties in the retelling of the bible stories used to illustrate his points. It would have been nice if only one version of the bible was used and not a mish-mash of different volumes.

    All in all, I can not recommend this book as it does not teach anything new, but uses the ideas from some of Mr. Lucado's books.
