Book Review: Plan B

Pete Wilson, pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN, addresses dealing with personal crisis in his book Plan B. Using a comforting, conversational tone Wilson refreshingly avoids making an attempt to fully answer the big "why" question and instead offers some insight as to how a person might face a Plan B situation with some very useful reflections on examples from the Bible and current times.

Being two years into my own Plan B crisis (my son was diagnosed with leukemia and then relapsed) I was relieved to find hope and encouragement in Wilson's book. With so much of the "church" world falling into cliché responses to questions that elude answer I appreciate his dismissal of those clichés as useless platitudes.

Read this book now. Whether your crisis has already struck or it's not even a blip on the screen of your life, because, as Wilson points out, it happens to everyone (at least once). In Plan B you will find the encouragement and hope you need to face crisis, endure it, and recover from it.

  1. Kristin, I just spent some time on your blog. Very interesting!! I wish we lived closer- I would love to shop at thrift stores with you!! We have a Goodwill that puts clothes on the .29 rack every Sunday. So I love to go Sunday afternoon to check out the bargains!! I look for 100% wool sweaters to make felting projects and I always find a cute top for Hannah that she usually loves. You can't go wrong with .29!!It never fails that the thing that I look for is there that day, One time I needed a jeans skirt and it was there.Another time I needed tan pants-there!! I think that God cares about the little things-don't you?? Melissa


Thank you for your comment. I love hearing from those who read the blog, and hope we can share with each other, graciously of course.
