Book Review: Plan B by Pete Wilson

Plan B was written by Pete Wilson, a young pastor in Tennessee who has a deep desire to see people grow in faith in God.  Throughout the book, he weaved dozens of stories in a casual yet fresh retelling of Biblical examples of men and women in circumstances gone south with present day stories of difficult situations that you and I face.  He addressed shattered or altered dreams of what path we thought our life would travel to lead us to depend on the God of the universe who uses our Plan B to draw us to complete trust and faith in Him.

I started reading this book thinking it was too simple for me as long time Christian, but as I read further into the book, I felt the honest and relevant illustrations would not only benefit me, but would reach a non-believer or seeker as well.  Pete admitted that he did not have all the answers and I appreciated his vulnerability and straight forward message to just focus on the cross.  I think anyone would gain insight from reading Plan B whether you had one, are in one or may go through one.  He also includes a section of thought provoking questions that would work well for personal study or small groups.
