The Gospel of Yes Review

The Gospel of Yes. It took me a bit to get into this book. I'm not sure if it was because of the busy-ness of the holiday and travel and guests, but the repeated phrse "God's Yes" seemed too abstract for me. I finally "got it" in chapter 4. The cost of this book would be worth that chpater alone. I ate that one up. I highlighted that chapter so much the pen ran out of ink. Anyway...
I think because Mike Glenn is a senior pastor of a large church this book must have been born out of a sermon series- which isn't a bad thing. It just seems a little obvious the way it's written.
I loved this on page 56, the bottom paragraph: " Paul reminds us that God chooses people who are overlooked by the world to accomplish His purposes. Moses is exhibit A. Here's the point that is made again and again: even when there is good reason for God to say "no", He chooses "yes". Then He finds a way-working with highly flawed people-to accomplish His plans. (all references to God capitalized by me)
I found all kinds of great nuggets to highlight in this book. I didn't enjoy it as much as some books but it held my attention and I got something out of it for sure. I would love to go to his church- I bet his sermons are amazing!
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
