Cure for the Common Life by: Max Lucado
Reviewed by: Steve Capell
According to Max Lucado everyone is unique in some special way because that is the way God made each one of us. This uniqueness is called a sweet spot – the area of life where each person has a special purpose. “Cure for the Common Life” is broken up into three sections: ‘Use Your Uniqueness”, “To Make A Big Deal Out of God”, and “Every Day of Your Life.” This book will guide the reader into an inner search on their own life.
I have read a number of books on finding talents, but “Cure for the Common Life” goes beyond just finding our talent it brings the reader face to face with how to fulfill God’s purpose through our uniqueness. I especially liked this comment from Max, “Don’t see yourself as product of your parents’ DNA, but rather as a brand-new idea from heaven.”
Who should read this book?
If you’re a Max Lucado fan you will want to read his latest book. This book would appeal to any age group. Anyone that feels they are just living a very common life should read this inspirational book.
This book will be one that I will reread and loan to my relatives and friends. With the cornucopia of religious books that exist for readers it is sometimes becomes difficult to choose which books to read. You will not be disappointed if you choose this one.
