I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid of not living. Of not leaving some kind of legacy.
I think about that a lot lately.
Then ta-da! Here comes Max Lucado with his new book, Outlive Your Life.
“A first day. A final day. And a few thousand in between. You’ve been given an honest-to-goodness human life.”
“You’ve been given your life. No one else has your version . . . You’ll never meet anyone who has your exact blend of lineage, loves, and longings . . . and who pressed the accelerator?”
“You want your life to matter. You want to live in such a way that the world will be glad you did.”
Yeah, Max. You’re talking to me. I’m listening.
In typical Lucado style, with words that sing and colorful stories that resonate, this book focuses on the first 12 chapters of the book of Acts and post-Acts examples of people who made and make a difference. Whose lives lived and will live on in the lives of others for generations.
Max shares inspiration and encouragement in how we can rock our hurting world with hope. How we can follow the example of the early church. How we can live lives of compassion.
Caution. This book could change your life.
