I really liked this book, if by "like" you mean it shook me to the core about my perceived importance in the world. When you first read the title, you assume a prosperity theology-esque message where you get to establish a legacy for your own sake. You don't have to read past the prologue to find that this book promotes a life lived as anything but a self-indulgent endeavor. The idea that we are meant to serve others, with the ultimate goal of promoting God, is not unique to the author, but Mr. Lucado has a particularly accessible way of fleshing that idea out. It is a relatively easy read, but not in a watered-down kind of way. He combines scripture and practical application in an engaging way that drives you to turn the pages, and all the while tugs at you to put the book down and get busy serving already. It is not preachy or impractical either. Much time is spent sharing true stories of "ordinary people" doing extraordinary things for God. This book will inspire you to think outside your own self comforts and see how you might impact the very lives of others. I recommend it to anyone asking the "what next?" question with regard to a life lived for Jesus. If you are unsatisfied with a self-serving, armchair kind of faith, this book will resonate with you. I give it four out of five stars.
