Book Review: Plan B

Plan B
By Pete Wilson

I'm mixed in my feelings regarding Plan B by Pete Wilson. The book is based around the question of how do you pick up the pieces of your life when the plan you had for it falls apart - thus the title Plan B. A primary observation I had is that Pete leans heavily on stories/experiences to convey his ideas rather than basing them on direct biblical truth. This lends itself to being an easier read, but left me hungry for God's Word. However, I kinda got the feeling this book may have been written more for the person who has grown up in church their whole life and done their own thing and all of a sudden reaches a point where they either a: realize their life hasn't turned out the way they thought it would, or b: had something tragic happen and are now questioning where God is in the midst of that hard time. This would probably be a fine book to help them through that time as it does point you back to God and His plans and purposes for our lives and how they don't always match up with our own. But I felt like it was a very light book and only scratches the surface of God's sovereignty over our lives and His ultimate purpose for mankind - to bring Him glory. I don't have a major problem with this book, but as I said, it left me wanting more; wishing he had delved deeper into God's Word and truth.

I received this book for free from in exchange for my honest review.

I agree - although I felt that the book was probably more geared towards new Christians or those who had not been to church much. It had a very "light" feel; like I could predict what he would say in each chapter. Enjoyed your review!
