Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life by Max LucadoMax Lucado does an excellent job of conveying the simple truths of the Gospel in his latest book Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make A Difference. The author uses very simple and plain language to give us the why and how of getting back to the original message of Christianity. He uses a very conversational style that is a pleasure to read. He fills it with many personal examples from his and others’ lives as well. ┬áThis book is a call to action that every Christian needs to read and implement in their lives.

While reading the book, I was reminded of another book I recently read and reviewed The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns. Mr. Stearns book is a little more missional minded but does contain much of the same call to action as Max Lucado’s. I greatly enjoyed reading both of these books and am very thankful to for providing me with complementary copies to review. It has definitely given me a new perspective on my faith and challenged me to live out my faith in a way that will make a difference in the lives of others that will ultimately outlive my life.

Change the World

The Boy Who Changed the WorldThe Boy Who Changed the World by Andy Andrews is a colorful children’s book that talks about the impact even a small action can have on the world. The book is adapted from Andrews’ inspirational book The Butterfly Effect in order to bring it down to a child’s level of understanding. It is graphically and colorfully illustrated by Philip Hurst.

In order to illustrate his point the author tells the story of the development of a hybrid corn seed that has saved the lives of billions from starvation. He traces the events that led up to the development backward through time to the small act of a simple farmer who rescued a small boy from the hands of outlaws and brought him into his own family.

This story does a good job of showing how everything we do can have an impact. Every child needs to learn the lesson that they don’t have to be a president, or CEO, or Military Hero to change to world. They just need to be themselves and do what they can for others.
