Book #13: Just Do Something by Kevin L. DeYoung

A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will



The introduction by Pastor Joshua Harris alone was enough to grab my attention:

"It is God's will that you read this book".

Harris almost immediately admits that this was a joke, but it sets up the generally humourous tone of this Christian book, which disspells many of the myths around knowing what God wants of you and how He is the one who guides all of your steps.

I liked the way that this book shows that we don't have to look to see what God's will is in every situation in life, just anything where we don't know what to do when faced with a big decision. Although this felt like it was aimed more at younger readers, I still found it useful, and I liked the final message that the most important things are obeying the Gospel and then doing what seems right to us.
