Plan B: A Fresh Realistic Voice for Today's World (Book Review)

Plan B
By Pete Wilson

Pete Wilson, Pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN, brings us stories, both biblical and modern day, of real-life Plan B situations. The ones where it just isn’t going the way you thought it would. From families facing unthinkable tragedy, to the familiar struggles of Daniel or Ruth, Wilson recognizes the human response, and reminds us that often, God’s ways are different from that which we might expect or desire.

We’ve all been faced with it. That moment in time, that broken relationship, that tragic accident, where everything we thought we knew was turned upside down. Where the path we thought we were being led down suddenly dropped off like a cliff. Pete Wilson’s Plan B reminds us that even when we don’t recognize God by our side, He’s there, guiding each step. Perhaps He’s taking you along a slippery ledge, or perhaps it feels as though you’ve been pushed off completely. What we view as Plan B was always God’s Plan A!

I loved this book, start to finish. It was like sitting down with a good friend, as we talked our way through tough times. I never felt “preached to” – instead I felt comforted and reassured. The fear and anger that often accompany the Plan B situations were acknowledged, and Wilson showed how many times those emotions were used by God to teach.

If you’re looking for a book that has The Answers, the book that will repair the rift in your marriage, or show you how to land the right job, this is not it. This is the book that is there to remind you that God’s path isn’t always the easy one, but it’s the right one, and to hang in there. Pull up a comfortable chair, grab a cup of coffee, and settle in for a friendly chat, nestled in the pages of Pete Wilson’s Plan B.
