Praise for Plan B
What do you do when you wake up with shattered dreams and unmet expectations? Pete Wilsons book, Plan B, offers honest encouragement and spiritual insights when life doesnt go as planned.
Craig Groeschel, senior pastor, LifeChurch.tv, and author of The Christian Atheist
If your life is going according to plan, if your pain level is low and your ease meter is high, you probably dont need this book. But for the rest of us, I am glad its around.
John Ortberg, pastor and author, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
Pete Wilson is a fresh voice for all today who wonder if theyve missed Gods best life and are relegated to gathering dust. He provides honest hope, a sound biblical base, and real answers. What also touched me as a reader was his warmth and authenticity. A great read for us all.
Dr. John Townsend, author of Boundaries, psychologist, and business coach
No matter what youre going through, Plan B will help you get through it. Plan B is a down-to-earth book written by a down-to-earth pastor. Authentic hope is only a book away!
Mark Batterson, senior pastor, National Community Church, and author of Primal
Pete Wilson is a young, dynamic leader with a growing church and a heart to see people reach out and find Christ in the midst of any and every circumstance. His sincerity and desire to disarm some of lifes difficult twists and turns with godly perspective will help anyone struggling with lifes realities and Plan B.
Brian Houston, senior pastor, Hillsong Church
Hope is packaged and sold in many different ways in our society, often wrapped with false promises and an unrealistic view of life. This is why Plan B is such an important book. Pete deals openly and honestly with the disappointments we experience, pointing us to a hope that endures, sustains, and overcomes.
We all know people who have walked away from God because of Plan B experiences, not realizing that these are the moments God uses the most. Pete shows us that we dont have to deny the reality of what we face. We simply need to embrace the reality of a God who loves us and who is greater than our greatest disappointments. After all, His Plan B for our lives is the best plan of them all.
Jeff Henderson, pastor, Buckhead Church
Pete Wilson is a tremendous communicator whose warmth and care for people are evident on every page of this fantastic book. Plan B is a powerful resource for the detours of our lives. I wish this book would have been available years ago when some of my Plan As crashed, but Im so thankful for the wisdom of its pages for my Plan Bs today.
Jud Wilhite, senior pastor, Central Christian Church, and author of Eyes Wide Open
While reading Plan B, I cheered, wept, and rediscovered parts of my faith that Id long given up on finding. Like a conversation with an old friend, Pete Wilsons reflections about God and life are engaging, sensitive, and moving. As far as Im concerned, if youre working on plan A, Plan B is a good prerequisite.
Matthew Paul Turner, author of Churched and Hear No Evil
In a generation that faces ever increasing disappointment with life, this book masterfully reminds us that God is at work and turns everything around for good. As you read Plan B, you will sense the genuine love and concern from a pastor who cares. Well done, Pete.
Chris Hodges, pastor, Church of the Highlands
If Plan A for your life isnt working out too well, youre not alone. In this book, Pete Wilson helps you make sense of lifes frustrations and disappointments. The stories in Plan B remind you once again that God, who began a good work in you, is faithful to complete it. Pete is a passionate voice for a new generation of Christians. He is a man who lives what he writes.
Robert Emmitt, senior pastor, Community Bible Church
Pete Wilson tells the truth. Following Jesus is hard . . . really hard. Plan B is not another book filled with pat answers to lifes most painful questions; it is a bold yet gracious exploration of how the love of God sustains when the broken dreams and shattered expectations of life threaten to overwhelm us.
Ian Morgan Cron, speaker and author of Chasing Francis: A Pilgrims Tale
Pete Wilson is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee. Pete desires to see churches become radically devoted to Christ, irrevocably committed to one another, and relentlessly dedicated to reaching those outside of God's family. Pete and his wife, Brandi, have three boys.
This new young voice in evangelical Christian circles, a pastor and church planter in Nashville, finds a distinctive way to weave Bible stories with his own and other life stories. People develop Plan B, Wilson argues, when life does not deliver what someone wants. It also entails a firm belief that God is there both in the failure of Plan A and in the redemption that comes in Plan B. Wilson draws on other Christian writers and thinkers as well as the Bible; the foundation for Plan B comes from such Bible texts as John 16:33, in which Jesus says, 'In this life you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.' Wilson cautions that taking only one part of this teachingeither the trouble part or the overcoming partleads to bad theology. Good theology comes from holding these two together in tension, balancing disappointment and suffering with faith in a loving God. While the teaching is sound, the way he delivers it needs tweaking; Wilson's writing lacks the kind of humility that draws the reader in. (May) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
