Overview

What do you do when your dreams are shattered?

What do you do when your life isn't turning out the way you thought?

What do you do when you have to turn to Plan B?

Pete Wilson reaches beyond the typical Christian response to offer frank understanding, honest encouragement, and real hope for your Plan B reality. Drawing on real-life stories from the Bible (David, Joseph, Mary, and Martha) and the present day, he writes to help you:

  • Move past the feelings of crisis: panic, fear, paralysis, and overcontrol
  • See God in your circumstances--even when he doesn't seem to be there at all
  • Make peace with doubt, which can actually be an expression of faith
  • Find hope through the redemptive power of community
  • Ask the right questions in order to fi nd real, satisfying answers
  • Explore the relationship between shattered dreams and true spiritual transformation

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 teaching—either the trouble part or the overcoming part—leads 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)
