Review: Plan B by Pete Wilson

Book Description
Learn how God often does His best work in our most hopeless situations.

What do you do when a shattered dream or an unmet expectation causes you to turn to Plan B? Pastor and author Pete Wilson uses real life stories of disappointments and tragedy along with biblical stories such as David, Joseph, and Ruth to help readers face their own overwhelming situations and through them to learn God is working to help them surrender their plans to receive His. He identifies our common responses to difficulties and offers hope, helping us to understand what God might be up to. 

Review: Overall I thought this was a great book that everyone should read at least once and in my case, re-read often. It is a great reminder to trust God with all things and that God's plan is greater than any we can come up with on our own. I really liked how Mr. Wilson wove his own personal stories, stories from his congregation and stories from the Bible to prove that if we stop and listen to the voice of God, He will see us through. I really appreciated the fact that Mr. Wilson did not presume to have all the answers and his writing style was very easy to read. He writes all of this in "common", easy-to-read language which is not for someone looking for a deep theological book.  Wonderful message!
