I had always thought I had the gospel of "yes" with God. After reading this book I realized I might be playing it safe.
Mike Glenn begins with the point that God wants us to concentrate on doing things we are good at. God is will to show us if we just ask. I often wonder why we don’t ask God for such things.
The playing it safe portion starts to hit close to home as he states a lot of phrases that explain this action. Low profile, mind your own business, retreat, avoid the struggle of living out your faith, to name a few.
There may even be those who duck behind a theological bumper sticker slogan that is designed to shut off any further conversation or thought. The author states the Resurrection is God’s ultimate "yes" to humanity.
I liked a lot of the one liners he used to explain things. Our lives may begin with a mess, but they end with the Divine Yes. Another was that being a Christian can become a spiritual frequent-flier program.
I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to everyone who is not afraid to use his or her talents for God. The greatest point Mike Glenn makes is that we are loved by God and everything else flows from that eternal reality.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
