Book Review: Just Do Something

Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's WillJust Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will by Kevin DeYoung
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An excellent tonic to the "wait for God to tell me what to do" Christian life. DeYoung is clear, biblical, and funny. I had some minor disagreements here and there. But the main point of the book is one that every Christian needs to hear. God is not going to give you specific direction for every facet of your life. He is not going to tell you exactly who to marry or what job to take or what store to shop at. He gives us directions on how to be more holy, but not on what to do on Friday night. DeYoung especially speaks to all the passive males in the Christian world who stand around waiting for something to happen to them. I would encourage every man under 50 to read the book and every pastor or elder. It will free you from the paralysis of indecision.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
