What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do by Henry Cloud & John Townsend


What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do
is a short book discussing eight principles in finding God's way through difficult circumstances. The book highlights the fact that the best time for God to work in our lives is when we've come to the end of our rope. As long as we're trusting in our own strength to "fix" the problem, we're not open to the lessons God has for us. Once we realize our need for Him, God will give us the strength and wisdom to get through the problem, not out of it.

I found this to be a delightful read. Even though the authors are doctors, the tone and language was very conversational and "down-to-earth." The ideas in the book, though not new, were presented in a clear and concise manner. The most important thing I learned is that faith is a two-step process: attitude and action. The section on that topic was a real eye-opener for me.

On the negative side, there were several typos that caused me to stumble over the message being presented. Other than that, I have nothing but praise for this book.
