Plan B, by Pete Wilson
“What do you do when God doesn’t show up the way you thought he would?” That’s a question each one of us will face. We all have an idea of how life should go, our marriage, job, church, relationships, our financial standing, all of it. But, when we get that phone call, or someone drops the big news, or we find that pink slip awaiting us, we suddenly find ourselves facing Plan B. Now what?
I can tell Pete is a preacher, and probably a real good one. He keeps me in the book by intertwining principles with personal stories and anecdotes. He shares some of his fatherhood stuff and his pastoral responsibilities in the face of difficult junk, all to help me realize how to navigate to and through my personal Plan B. So much of the Bible, including the cross, comes down to Plan B.
I love the honesty at the end of the book about the missing bow. Followers of Christ need to read this and know that just because we love Jesus, we don’t get our way. We are all about His way, and the path often looks like a Plan B.

Thanks so much for the review Pastor Mark. Got a chance to check out your church website and it was so great to see what God is doing through you guys. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
