Plan B by Pete Wilson

This is a review of the book Plan B by Pete Wilson.  The tagline "What do you do when God doesn't show up the way you thought he would" really drew me to this book.  The basic premise of the book is just that...what happens when God doesn't come through like we (mere-humans!) think he should.  Pete uses characters from the Bible as well as current day personal experiences to illustrate these points.  Joseph, Jonah, David...they all experienced a "Plan B" but God was with them through it all.

Anyone that is currently experiencing, has experienced or thinks they will experience a "Plan B" situation should read this book.  He does not provide all the answers for how to get through adversity, but every person's "Plan B" is different, and only God is the one that has those answers.

A question he asked is "What would you do if you were absolutely confident God was with you?"  What a powerful question to consider when coming upon our own "Plan B" situations!  His response, "When you respond in your current circumstances as if you were confident that God is there, you will see God in the circumstances."  I really like that, and I think it is a good question/response to keep in mind when adversity does strike.  All in all, a good book, and I would recommend it to anyone!
