I am praying for Pete Wilson and his church today as they face the clean up efforts around their city of Nashville. Pete commented on his blog (www.withoutwax.tv) that it was quite ironic that his book, Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn’t Show Up the Way You Thought He Would? would come out the day after one of the worst natural disasters his city has ever seen. I see it as providential timing.
True to its title the book is about moving on and trusting God when we are caught off guard by the circumstances of life. Pete has a personal and engaging style in writing. He draws the reader in with his personal stories of setbacks, heartache, and seeming failure. Then in the midst of the story he applies the healing balm of God’s word most often by examining the life of a Bible character.
I really liked the book and appreciated the author’s engaging and transparent writing style. I had minor disagreements with a few statements on a theological level, but the statements weren’t made as theological observations as much as running commentary on life events and were easily dismissed. I think the book is a great read and a timely for what many people are facing in Nashville and other places today.
We are continuing to keep Nashville in our prayers. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of Plan B, the retail price is $14.99 (Paperback), and is available at places like Amazon.com for $10.19. I gave it four stars.
