Item description for Unfinished Work (Extreme For Jesus) by Kevin Max...
Overview Kevin Max, of the popular rock group dc Talk, offers readers thought provoking ideas on being real, being true to how God made them and finding meaning and strength through religion.
Kevin Max knows what it's like to not fit in, to make mistakes, to be seen as "out there" by some people in the church. In his years on the road, he has come into contact with thousands of young Christians and seekers who identify with that experience. In "Unfinished Work," Kevin offers honest encouragement to Christians struggling to be real and live the life they were called to live. He illustrates his ideas with fascinating stories from his life as a musician, complemented by behind-the-scenes photographs from his own collection.
Through "Unfinished Work," readers will learn to find their strength and meaning in God alone, and they will see themselves as the unique and creative individuals God made them to be.

Unfinished Work - ready to read the next chapter... Dec 29, 2007
I found his thoughts on being adopted interesting in comparison to my thoughts regarding my own experience. What would be really interesting to me is to read a follow-up featuring his current thoughts and perspective on life, God, music, and family and how they have or have not changed over the past few years. I appreciated the song-by-song explanation that was threaded throughout the book. I think its a neat concept that more musicians should take a stab at. I have a great deal of respect and appreciation for Mr. Max and the route that he's chosen to take since dc Talk. THE BLOOD (released 12/07) is a cornerstone album in which Max demonstrates his range and reverence for the real roots of American rock and the real roots of meaning in life. Check it out.The Blood
interesting look into the life of KMax Jun 27, 2006
Chances are if you are even looking at this review, you have followed, or at least are familiar with the career of DC Talk, where Kevin Max gained his fame. If you did follow them, it is no surprise that KMax was always kind of the odd one out. This book is a chapter by chapter commentary on his debut solo album 'Stereotype B' It will probably only be interesting to fans of KMax or DCT, but I thought it was an interesting glimpse into the enigma of Kevin.
Blessed Raven! May 21, 2005
Wow! What a story. Who knew so much went on in the life of a Christian singer? I'd gotten Kevin's debut CD, "Stereotype Be", and was intrigued enough to read the book "Unfinished Work" to get more insight. I expected more details about the creative process behind the music; instead, I found myself relating to the trials and complexity behind the artist. No glossy image here! If you're like me, and you don't know anything about Kevin Max other than what you hear on a DC Talk CD, this book will definitely enlighten you. It's the reality of an artist within a man struggling on the path toward God.
THE BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD Feb 24, 2003
I was first introduced to DC Talk when 6 months ago by my sister listening to it in the car. I fell in love with the cd they did called "intermission". But there was one voice on there that i could never get enough of. It was the voice of kevin Max. I am still planning on getting his cd, but i saw this book called "unfinished work" that he wrote and i thought I HAD TO HAVE IT. well i started to read it and fell in love. I finished reading it yesterday. I hightly recommend it.
Very Satisfying.......But want MORE! Feb 11, 2003
I have been a fan of Kevin Max for a long time. I am a fellow poet, so I find him inspring as he is also a published poet, which you will find out in this book. Upfront I would recommend At the Foot of Heaven, a book of poetry by Kevin also. WIth pics by Jimmy A.
The reason I purchased this book is the idea he would be presenting each song on his solo album and what it means. I needed this cause at first hearing, some of the songs are hard to understand, so that is what first drew me to this book. Second, what i didn't know, is that he was going to give a brief bio in the book, and deal with the real issues that Christians go through and the fact that we are all humans loved by a gracious God who has a purpose for us. A unique purpose for each and every one of us. I thought this book was awesome because of it's honesty, not only about Kevin, but about the music business and the influences we can be on the lost, just by listening. I stongly recommend this book to any K. Max fan. He answers alot of questions that I had only heard rumors about, now I am settled about certain things, and leave the rest to God to guide.....I would recommend also Slip of the Ink by Kevin when it is released....His second book of poetry.
However, due to some of the honesty, this book should be read by someone who is able to make sound decisions and not justify actions by what others have done. (i.e. Kevin drinks so I can...) One of kevins main messages, paraphrased is: we all have the ability to make decisions ourselves, God has given us that right, it's up to us to use it correctly.
