REGGIE: You Can't Change Your Past, but You Can Change Your Future is the autobiography of a man who finds out as a young boy that his is adopted. This information devastates him as a boy, but he comes out of it as a young man and eventually becomes a Christian speaker to the youth in schools and other platforms, offering to be their "Daddy" where they have no daddy. He refers to God as "Big Daddy" at least, and while his story does exhibit that you can change your future, even though you can't change your past, I didn't find the book that inspiring. I don't really agree with the "Daddy" concept, because there is only one true father (God Himself). I think Reggie is probably a great speaker, but I don't think writing is his strong suit, even with a co-writer.

Love at Last Sight: 30 Days to Grow and Deepen Your Closest Relationships by Kerry & Chris Shook
The authors have a good book, if you want to know everything you have already learned about keeping a relationship. It's obvious they love their family and friends, and time with them is important. I expected more biblical based advice from this book, given who the authors were.
There are challenge questions at the end of each day's section, which are good questions to ask yourself about improving a relationship.

Max On Life by Max Lucado
Max answers questions received in letters, e-mails, and phone calls primarily on topics like God, spirituality, faith, salvation, forgiveness, fear, prayer, healing, and death. He tells you in the introduction that many of the answers appeared in earlier books, which he has done before. That doesn't change the impact of the questions or the answers. The questions are very thought provoking, and in Max Lucado easy-to-understand style, the answers make sense and are biblically-based. A big thumbs-up on this book!
