Everyone wants to know that their time on earth has some significance. We all want to make a difference.
These are difficult days in our worlds history. Billions of people are poor, millions go hungry or thirsty every day. Disease claims thousands of lives daily. But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with Gods love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. What if you lived in such a way that your death is just the beginning of your life?
In Outlive Your Life DVD-Based Study, Max Lucado presents four sessions that follow the real-life stories of people who are making their lives count. Designed for individual study or for a small group experience, each session will show you not just why but how to live intentionally so that everything in your life---your time, your skills, your passions---all add up to something bigger than you.
Designed as a companion to the DVD-Based Study, this participant's guide can be used for journaling or as a prompt for open-hearted discussions with your small group. Let Max Lucado be your guide as you set out on a journey to outlive your life.
More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.
KCPryzrGilbert, AZAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Be Prepared to have your Outlook DhangedAugust 21, 2012KCPryzrGilbert, AZAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5If you don't want your life changed, leave this book alone. If you are happy being selfish, content with focusing on your own wants, wishes, and needs, then you won't like this book. BUT...if you are looking for someone to challenge you to get out of your own way and let God perform supernatural feats through your mustard-seed size faith, this is the book for you.
This book will make you want to match up with the character examples that Max gives. People like Mother Theresa who gave up everything to love Jesus through the poor in India or the little boy who challenged his father, his pastors, and his church to give money to build clean water wells in a third-world country.
Max Lucado does what I've come to understand is quite normal for him. He mixes humor, examples from the Bible, and examples from people he knows to quite literally, hit you over the head with a baseball bat, and try to wake you up to the life that is lived outside of your own existence.
One thing I would recommend is to read it twice. The first time, just read. Let yourself smile at the picture of the man with the new ox and cry with the story of the Turkish pastor who lost his life for not recanting his belief in Jesus. Enjoy the way Mr. Lucado brings life to some of the stories from the Bible you've heard time and time again.
Then, after you've absorbed everything, go back through with the study guide provided at the back of the book and really let God teach his lessons through this book.
I think it's a book you will thoroughly enjoy and be challenged to "Outlive Your Life".

Joanne5 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2010Joanne"Out Live Your Life" is another home-run hit by Max Lucado. Max has a way of taking the Word of God and making it real and relational to us ordinary people of the 21st century. Each thought-provoking chapter will challenge you to make a difference in your personal world! I would recommend this book for any small group study as well as campus and student ministries.
