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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
