fourforsoaring5 Stars Out Of 5A must have book, a guide for life's decisions.October 25, 2020fourforsoaringYou know those books you read and you wish not only everyone you know and love would read, but EVERYONE would read? This is one of those books. I wish that, not because I think - wow- I had all this figured out and THEY should really read this, but precisely because I don't have it figured out, even after half a century of decisions and regrets, and I want them to be armed with practical handles to grab onto as they make their life's decisions. I have been following Andy as my pastor's pastor for about a decade now, and he has an amazing way of boiling things down to there essence without sacrificing any Truth, content or impact. If you want to read a literary truth bomb that will blow up your life in all the best ways possible, this book is for you!
AJSmelser5 Stars Out Of 5Practical, godly wisdomOctober 20, 2020AJSmelserTruth can be hard to hear. Personal responsibility can be hard to accept. Yet Andy makes both issues approachable. Doable. His kind attention to biblical truth and his real-life examples make the topic of choosing better reachable. We can do this. Andy does not preach from an assumed ivory tower. He shares humble wisdom grounded in scripture. He challenges me to be better, not because of his words, but because he always takes his readers to the source of his wisdom, Christ.
teknopasto5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent and Timely!October 20, 2020teknopastoI am a longtime fan of Andy Stanley, and this may be his best, most practical book yet. The five questions he challenges us to ask are immediately applicable and easy to remember. This book is highly readable and filled with characteristic Andy Stanley stories. It is written in a conversational style, which makes you feel as if you're in the room with the author. He easily mixes Bible stories with modern psychology and observable insights. It is a quick read that I will go back to frequently, without a doubt.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I was provided with an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. However, I purchased the book even after being given the advance copy. It's that useful.
dcline5 Stars Out Of 5Easy Read, but Powerfully Rich and ApplicableOctober 20, 2020dclineQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was excited to get Better Decisions, Fewer Regrets, not because these are completely new and original ideas about wise decision-making, but because Andy Stanley does such a great job of taking challenging truth and making it painfully applicable to my life.
As a regular attender at one of the Atlanta-area churches Andy pastors who has been listening to him for over 25 years, I have heard most of the content in this book at some point before. But this book is such a simple and easy read that I am amazed how rich it is! I read through the whole book in just a few hours over two days, but highlighted 229 phrases or passages that I found highly impactful.
The stories that Andy uses to illustrate the principles, a mix of his own experiences and biblical narratives, is very engaging and powerful. Even at times when the content might be difficult to accept, the illustrations make the truth both compelling and inviting. My takeaway from many of the application examples was it often seemed easier said than done, and yet I felt so drawn to the outcomes that I was inspired to try asking these questions in my own life.
The timing of this book is excellent, because this has been a challenging season in so many ways, and it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and what matters most when making so many difficult decisions in high pressure circumstances. By far the legacy question is the one that I find most helpful to refocus on the bigger story and pull up from the weeds.
Asking what love requires of me is constantly one of the most challenging questions I wrestle with, often because deep down I know, yet the answer is hard and costly. Andy very bluntly points out that this is the only question with no guaranteed return. Loving others well might not ever be reciprocated or appreciated, and yet is such a powerful application to find clarity in even the most difficult and cloudy decision contexts.
This is such an easy read, yet is powerfully rich and so applicable for doing life better one decision at a time!
