“Ask It” by Andy Stanley

coverWhat I always like about Andy Stanley’s books are the fact that they are easy to read, but have very practical advice. I think this is what most people are looking for in this day and age.

He starts off with the statement “most of our problems in life happen are gradual.” Situations that are not wrong, but may not be the best. The “question” Andy refers to is found in the letter Paul wrote to the Ephesian believers. Ephesians 5:15-17 states, “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Andy walks us through different life situations and shows us how to apply the “question”.

We have all been in situations where we do not know what to do next. The question gives us some insight of what we need to do. The problem is most of us will not slow down and use the question when we need to. Sure we think about what we should do when we are stuck in a problem. However, we do not think about it when we face temptations.

I think this is one of those books everybody should read, but especially youth and college students. This book could save them a lot of heartache and misery for the future.
