For those of you who’ve been in church long enough to know about this book, I realize that I’m nearly a decade behind this fad that came and went earlier this decade. I saw this little book on my mom-in-law’s bookshelf. It’s extremely short, so I picked it up and finished it in a little over an hour. The reason I avoided reading it is because some of the language makes it sound like it’s a “Your Best Life Now” health-and-wealth type book.
It isn’t that type of book at all.
Wilkinson’s little book is about praying for God to expand your ministry opportunities. He does a pretty decent job of expanding on each part of this unknown man’s prayer, and shows how it has little if anything to do with material wealth, but all about praying for, discovering, and acting on God’s will for your life no matter what your circumstance. I do wish he would have changed the language a bit, because people from certain backgrounds could misconstrue the message of the book for a prosperity pseudo-gospel. But over all, I’m glad I read it.
A decent little read. Better late than never.
