I am an appreciator of people who can think about the Word of God and develop points that are simple yet profound, and this book is replete with examples of that.

Dr. Charles Stanley is without a shadow of a doubt one of the greatest biblical theologians of our time. Although I had always been a distant admirer of Dr. Stanley and his teachings from my infrequent viewings of his telecast on TBN, I began fully listening to his teachings earlier this year. Having thoroughly enjoyed his audio messages and the soundness of the doctrines he espouses, I decided to buy some of his books, of which "God Has a Plan for Your Life" was the first I read.

I must say, this book is an absolute knockout. I am an appreciator of people who can think about the Word of God and develop points that are simple yet profound, and this book is replete with examples of that. I especially enjoyed Dr. Stanley's explanation of how God's will is defined and how God reveals his will to his children. You will be provoked to think deeply by reading this book, but not because it is packed with pointless explanations of Greek vocabulary from the second century.

Everything in this book has biblical documentation to support it, and I think this is representative of the fact that Dr. Stanley is an incredibly well-educated man, so he speaks and writes with a knowledge that can only come from years of devoted scholarship to the Word of God. Dr. Stanley is truly the walking fulfillment of 2 Timothy 2:15.

Unfortunately, when you read some other books from people who are preachers without the years of biblical study, you notice that it is either their theology is off, or they simply don't have enough scriptural knowledge to document how what they are writing directly relates to the scripture. Of course, God can use anybody to speak his word, but I prefer, and am much more comfortable with, being taught by someone who is a biblical scholar of the spiritual heft of Dr.

This book offers concrete opportunities to examine your life.
It answers life questions and offers ways in which the reader can connect with God's plan and purpose for one's life. It differs from the Purpose Driven Life yet gives much of the same information. I personally prefer the style of writing in this book over the former in forcing introspection and meditation on specific points.

Charles Stanley doesn't write like a "preacher". He writes like someone who has been there and knows from firsthand experience. I have loved every book. He writes with such love and concern. He knows God intimately and teaches us how to have a deeper relationship with God, Our Father.

I ordered Dr. Stanley's book because of the title. I had just gone through a three-year long, very un-amicable divorce after a 20 year marriage and was trying to recover from much pain and doubt and confusion, because 20 years ago, I thought I married my God-centered, life partner. ( We were both very involved in the Christian Church, so this divorce felt like the rug had been pulled out from under.) I was skeptical of God and Dr.Stanley to say the least. I had only heard Dr. Stanley a few times on the radio, was not a fan per se, but was looking for ANYTHING that would help me make sense of things.

I can tell you this:

1) This is a short book of ten chapters, 146 pages; not highly theological and easy to read.
2) This book gave me strength to keep going.

I took it slow, carried it in my bag, read it while waiting for the kids. Sometimes I read it at night before bed because it was so soothing.

Some are really angry at God because of their divorce, and I can't say I blame them. As for me I felt just felt hurt, crushed, "what now?" kind of feelings. On page one, Dr. Stanley writes, "We can know the plans He has for us."

I was doubtful. Been there, done that. The author goes on to talk about what we can depend on from Christ. Ok...

In the following chapters, the compelling thing about this read is how the author answers the questions, the doubts, the "yeah, buts" I had and lays each one to rest with reassurance and a short Scripture passage. I had to sit with each "answer" for a while. I found if I was "argumentative" internally with the author, it didn't serve me any good. Instead, I decided to let go and open my heart to whatever Dr. Stanley had to say about the God I thought I knew.

Dr Stanley has written a great book for those of us that wonder "what is Gods' plan for my life". I highlighted the parts, for me and still go back and look at that text.

This book is one of the greatest I have read. Dr. Stanley has such a gift for communicating the truths of God. If this book does not impact you you need to get on your knees.
