Plan B by Pete Wilson: A Review

I recently became a member of a website called Book Sneeze.  It is a Thomas Nelson website that provides bloggers with complimentary copies of book, in exchange for honest book reviews.  I have been following a Nashville Pastor, Pete Wilson, on twitter for a while, and he had a book called Plan B coming out.  It sounded like it was gonna be a great read, so I was super excited when I saw that I could get the book for free, and all I had to do was write a review once I was done reading it.  So, here goes:

Plan B by Pete Wilson is a book about what happens in the Plan B's of life.  Plan B's are situations in our lives when God seemingly doesn't show up the way we though he would.  Pete offers example after example of real life people who have been in Plan B situations in their life and how they have been able to continue to trust God despite the seemingly hopeless situations they were faced with.  I particularly related to a situation that Pete and his wife dealt with as they suffered a miscarriage.  I had been in that place where I was wondering where God was, and why he wasn't coming to my rescue like I thought he should. 

Pete offers practical wisdom through the use of real life, and biblical stories to show that sometimes our Plan B's are God's Plan A for our lives.  His conversational style makes his advice relevant, believable, and so easy to read and relate to.  I wasn't even through the first chapter and I had already thought of a friend that could really benefit from reading this book.  I would recommend it to anyone who has had a time in their life when they thought things were hopeless and God was nowhere to be found. 

"The truth is that God is most powerfully present when he seems most apparently absent. - Pete Wilson
