The Principle Of The Path: How to get from where you are to where you want to be

Opening the book: The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley: How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be, I was face with reviews by both Franklin Graham and Dave Ramsey, both of which I highly respect. What more could I possibly say to encourage someone to read this book?

The Principle of the Path is based on a basic biblical law known by Christians and non-Christians alike. What you reap is what you will sow. The path we choose ultimately will effect our destiny. Well, that is a simple concept. But how do we choose the correct path? Why do we continue to make the same mistakes? Andy Stanley answers these questions through out the book with examples from his life as well as examples of people he has counseled. The principle may seem simple, but too many of us don’t always choose the narrow path.

The principles taught in this book are excellent, they always point us to Christ. Nothing complicated and was easy to read. I appreciated the real life examples throughout that I could relate to my own life. I highly recommend this book as a graduation or even wedding gift. The sooner a young adult can read this the better. This would be helpful to avoid many of the mistakes we adults have made not following the natural laws laid out in God’s word. There is also redemption for those who have already made mistakes. But he is quite frank that it may take some time, and you may not be able to get exactly where you want to be. Then there are also curve balls that may ultimately lead you to a different, unexpected path that we just have to trust God through.

Also included is an excellent study guide at the end of the book covering the Key Idea, Key Truths, and Key Questions for each chapter of the book. The study guide also helps guide your thinking, points you to God, and helps to "Get from where you are to where you want to be."
