    Excellent Book!!! A must read for any believer!

    I would highly recommend getting the dvd as well to listen to the messages along with the book. Andy Stanley does an excellent job in presenting a great question to ask when God's Word isn't always black and white. I feel ever believer should read this apart from Scripture itself!

    Clear, On Target, and Very Beneficial

    Don't let the presumptuous-sounding title steer you away from taking ahold of the value of the message contained in this book. This is not a book intended to inflate the mind with knowledge but to provide the reader with practical skills for living - wisdom. It provides a solid approach to addressing the challenges of living in harmony with the imperatives of the Christian faith and living a life that is pleasing to God. I recommend it without hesitation.
