So for someone who has walked with God, and studied their Bible for several years now, this book may answer some of your questions, but I think the basic questions you will already know how God’s Word answers those questions. Still I’d say it’s worth a look because Max Lucado does an excellent job answering people’s questions with Scripture, showing them what Scripture says about their question.
Though these people went to Max Lucado for answers, I love that he takes them back to the Bible for the answer. So if you’re pretty familiar with what the Bible says, many of the scriptures he references may be ones that came to your mind too, as you read the person’s question, but then again, I found sometimes he referenced an excellent verse I hadn’t thought of, or offers an insight based on scripture that I had not considered. If you are a fan of Max Lucado you will enjoy this insightful read. However, for “answers and insights to your most important questions” the Bible remains unsurpassed.
