Outlive Your Life book review

I have always enjoyed reading Max Lucado, my favorite still being The Savior Next Door.  It seems that he is the most readable Christian author out there at the moment.  He is always effortlessly funny and is excellent at providing scripture in a way that you can use it in your daily life.  In Outlive Your Life, he examines the book of Acts.  He immediately pulls you into his books with his "imagine this" scenarios.  I enjoy this because I think we are all so stuck in the moment that we tend to forget why we were put on this Earth.
God has commanded us to do many things and we like to still live the way we do and give little snippets of time to Him when we can.  Lucado brilliantly highlights this in his book along with advice and help through scripture to get you where you need to be in your life. I read the book Radical right before this one, which was a mistake.  I loved Radical so much because it is a huge slap in the face and brings you to the reality that he has set in front of us.  I would have probably liked Outlive Your Life better if I would've read it before Radical.  This was a little sweet for my taste.  I am in that point though in my relationship with God that i yearn for deeper and more "in your face" realities.  With Max Lucado you know you are not getting that type of knock to the soul but it is uplifting none the less. 
I would recommend this book to Christians of most any age, especially ones who want to delve into the books of the Bible a little deeper.  That is probably my favorite part of this book overall.  I want to learn so much more about each book of the Bible and this was a nice intro to that.
