Before listening to Just Do Something on audiobook, I had never heard of Kevin DeYoung. Just Do Something is about finding what Gods will is. Its not what I was expecting, and it was better than I thought. With the right mixture of theology, personal stories, and humor, Just Do Something is a great resource for anyone trying to find out what Gods will is. Just Do Something wasnt condemning, but it did convict me. All my life, Ive always tried to find out what Gods will was, but I can see now where I wasted time and energy waiting for an answer. Im also guilty of making decisions based on the perks and benefits, instead of what will make me holy. DeYoung writes against over-spiritualizing trying to find Gods will and tinkering with life. The premise of the book basically is making choices that will help sanctify you, whether its a job, marriage, or relocating.DeYoung speaks about the providence of God throughout the book. Although God knows what will happen to everyone, we still have to go ahead and make a choice.The biblical way of finding Gods will is so simple, yet I know some people (including myself) might find it easier said than done. People that like to be in control of situations might find it too simple to just make a decision instead of agonizing over it, but thats where we just need to trust in the Lord. For Hes the only one who can see the big picture. DeYoung also exhorts to listener to grow in sanctification (through prayer, reading the Bible, etc.) so that Gods thoughts will be our thoughts, so that when we do have to make a decision, we wont have to spend months praying about it. Well know the right decision.I highly recommend DeYoungs Just Do Something to mature teens and any adult who are trying to find out what Gods will is. I only wish I had this book when I was making the transition to adulthood.
Flying can be an extremely convenient means of travel, but one of the downsides has got to be all the waiting around in the airport. This week I flew back home from a conference I had been attending. I had brought books to read and I had packed my iPod full of music. Fortunately I also had a few good audiobooks stored that I wanted to listen to as well. At just right around 3 hours of listening time, Kevin DeYoungs book Just Do Something seemed to be a workable choice for my downtime. Narrated by Adam Verner, Just Do Something had me engaged from the books introduction. DeYoung tackles a question that every Christian finds himself or herself asking at some point along their spiritual journey: How can I determine what Gods will is for my life?Listening to the book, I couldnt help but think how Just Do Something would make a great gift for the two high school seniors at our church that will be graduating this year. DeYoung makes the argument that while the easy answers to lifes questions cant always be found in the pages of Scripture, the principles are certainly there. The book seems geared for college and post-college aged Christians, but the decision making wisdom offered will be helpful for other generations as well.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Christianaudio as part of their Reviewers Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
