Learn how God often does his best work in our most hopeless situations. What do you do when a shattered dream or an unmet expectation causes you to turn to Plan B? Pastor and author Pete Wilson uses real-life stories of disappointments and tragedy along with biblical stories such as David, Joseph, and Ruth to help readers face their own overwhelming situations and through them to learn God is working to help them surrender their plans to receive his. He identifies our common responses to difficulties and offers hope, helping us to

  • understand what God might be up to;
  • see how surrender helps us to receive God’s plan;
  • embrace the community of believers; and
  • reconcile a God of love with a life of tragedy and suffering.

Wilson points readers to the cross as not just the starting line but the centerpiece of our stories with God where we turn in our Plan B and find the undeniable relationship between crisis and true spiritual transformation.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 2/9/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. It just didn't "draw me in" like most other books....so it took me a long time to read. The author made several great points. I would recommend it to others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malinda F. | 2/8/2014

    " Great read! Both Biblical and personal examples of when you end up someplace you didn't quite expect...that wasn't "part of the [your] plan". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/2/2014

    " Loved it! Something I need to re-read over & over to remind me that I cannot control everything, and everything does happen for a reason, whether the reason is known or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 1/19/2014

    " While I feel that the author occasionally fell back into the well worn Christian cliches he is trying to break with this book, overall I think he does a nice job of writing within the questions and paradoxes of an all powerful and loving God and a world where bad things happen to all people. It's a book filled with grace, mystery and empathy, and will be helpful to so many people struggling to see God in the face of their pain. It begins to undo the lies we've been told all our lives about how God will show up in our circumstances, and leads us to a deeper relationship with God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/13/2014

    " Trying to answer the question about why your life isn't turning out how you thought. However, in the end it appears there are no firm answers. Put your hope in God is all I learned from this book. But I didn't always feel like he explained exactly how to do that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci Eggleston | 1/13/2014

    " Wilson's honest, biblical and compassionate words are poignant and relevant to those living in their "plan B." I had to rush out and purchase my own copy. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/7/2014

    " A deeply Biblical and lovingly honest book about how to deal with life when God doesn't show up like you thought He was going to... highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 11/20/2013

    " Sometimes I have a hard time with self help theology books but I really liked this one. The author seemed genuine and really had some good points. Plus he frequently said "I don't have an answer" and that was oddly comforting to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alesia | 10/9/2013

    " Absolutely life-changing. One of those books you read and you think 'Everybody in the world has to read this book. They are missing vital information - they can't possibly exist without reading this." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Regina | 7/2/2013

    " Love Pete's authenticity and humility. He provides a lot of good perspective to help reposition your heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 7/20/2012

    " I go to CrossPoint, the church Pete pastors, and I can say this book was just as great as his sermons are every Sunday. It's definitely given me some food for thought on some relationships in my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse GIglio | 4/9/2012

    " I enjoy Pete as a person and this book as honest. Two things hard to find in the genre. "

    " Amazing book and Bible study! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 7/17/2011

    " Kinda cliche. I saw this guy speak on the TV before I bought the book, and all I could hear was his southern-ly twangy voice talkin' to me 'bout sin and expectations and how life ain't fair. It says what it should, but it's nothin' I ain't already heard. "
