On Pentecost, the Spirit came down and ignited the hearts and minds of believers to preach the gospel and live out justice for the forgotten. Max Lucado wonders, Might it happen again? Does God still free hearts, minds and bodies from the ravages of sin and poverty? The answer is yes! He does it through you, and in Outlive Your Life he challenges you to make a difference that will last beyond your time on earth. Take a stand for children, widows, and families who only need an opportunity to live.

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?

"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
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.
