When I finished Every Day Deserves a Chance: Wake Up to the Gift of 24 Hours
by Max Lucado I made tweeted this:

It is amazing how Christianity when done unselfishly and without bigotry has so much in common with other world religions

and I am sticking by that review. When I picked up this audio book in Florida for my drive home a few days ago I knew Max Lucado was a religious author but I didn't know to what extent and when he started spouting off Bible verses after just a few minutes of listening I wasn't sure I would make it through the whole thing. I respect all religions and are genuinely interested in how they work and what the people on the ground actually believe but I do not like to be preached to, I have spent my days in the pews of a church and have had my share of blind following, as an adult I will have no more of that. I was pleasantly surprised however to find that although Lucado was using Bible verses to back up his ideas his ideas weren't narrow minded or derogatory.
The message in Every Day Deserves a Chance is smart, uplifting and realistic. People do not wake up with a smile on their face they wake up and decide to smile. Max Lucado presents the case that we should decide to smile because God made this wonderful world to live in and gave us each the opportunity to make that choice in the first place. This is by far the best openly Christian book I have ever read, if all Christians acted the way this book suggests the world would be a better place.
