Book Review: Plan B

Leave a comment

Many of us struggle with the unknown, and with what to do when our plans become derailed.  In a society where we desire to get ahead and to create the best life for ourselves, we often experience extreme frustration and disillusionment when it seems that our best laid plans have foiled.

Enter Pete Wilson’s book “Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn’t Show Up The Way You Thought He Would?” This book explores how to handle those life situations that seem to derail us and force us into a place where we question our faith and the God that we serve.

I appreciate the easy style of the book, allowing me to read simply without having to over think.  I also enjoy the candidness of the author; including personal anecdotes as well as those from the lives of others that he has interacted with.  Those anecdotes add a personal element that helps the reader to truly connect with what the author is saying.  However, I am most appreciative of the way the author includes classic biblical stories in an unconventional way.

While Wilson simplifies and easily explains the biblical stories, he makes sure to emphasize their importance and their validity in helping the reader understand what to happen when we have to shift from our Plan A to a Plan B.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking to refresh their faith after being forced from Plan A to Plan B.  Additionally, this book offers a wonderfully refreshing take on how Christians can overcome trials while still maintaining their faith and their relationship with God.

It’s definitely worth reading!
