Book Review: Plan B by Pete Wilson

Pete Wilson, pastor at Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN, has written a new book, Plan B:  What do you do when God doesn’t show up the way you thought he would?  I originally thought I should read this book so that I might have the right words or thoughts to share with friends who find themselves at the end of their spiritual rope, unsure of where God is at this point in their lives and why He has allowed this thing (death, job loss, illness) to happen to them.  I did gain that insight, but I was also so wrong – I needed to read this book because it is about me!  While Wilson talks a lot about people who face some tragic or life altering event and turn to their Plan B, I think the same ideas can apply to those of us who experience small setbacks or disappointments.  Plan B is very readable and packed with biblical stories, modern examples, and challenging questions.  The included study guide will make it a great book for small groups to study together or for individuals to dig deeper into the material themselves.  I’m looking forward to reading through it again!
