There are books I always like to keep in my office to give people I think might benefit from them. At various times I given out The Barbarian Way by Erwin McManus, or The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard. Recently Crazy Love by Francis Chan has been my favorite giveaway. I’ve now found another: Plan B by Pete Wilson.
Plan B’s subtitle is “What Do You Do When God Doesn’t Show Up The Way You Thought He Would?”, and that’s the whole premise of the book. In a very conversational style, Pete walks us through both possible reasons and responses to times of life when things just don’t turn out they way we want, when we have to go to Plan B. As I read the book, at the end of each chapter, I would think, “That’s the chapter written for me.” Turns out, I needed to hear everything Pete had to say.
Pete includes many stories of himself, and those he knows, to illustrate how God works in and through the difficult times we all face at some point. He doesn’t pretend to have all the answers, either. But he does help us find some solid ground to stand on when it feels like our foundations are crumbling beneath us.
I highly recommend Plan B to you. It’s a great read. Pete really connects with his writing style and transparency. You’ll find comfort, even when you might not find answers. I think you’ll want to share it, too. I’ll soon have a few in my office.
