Empty Promises book review
"Empty Promises" is a book written by Pete Wilson and published by Thomas Nelson. Here is the book description:
We all long for more of something in our lives. In our endless pursuit to feel worth and acceptance we find ourselves sacrificing everything for the promise to be a little more beautiful, a little richer, a little more powerful and successful, a little more loved.
How do we break free from these empty pursuits and start chasing the only Promise that will ever satisfy? How do we uncover the hidden idols that are driving us and turn our devotion toward the one true God?
Join Pastor and best-selling author Pete Wilson in discovering the joy and freedom that comes with seeking after God with your whole life. Learn how to replace, and not just relinquish, life's empty promises by turning your focus and worship toward Him. It is the only thing that will set you absolutely free from the endless pursuit of everything else.
After reading this book I was impressed. It touches on things that we all go through and can relate to in one way or another. How many times have you been less than satisfied after getting a new gadget or hot new item that is supposed to be great and then realize all the hype was for nothing? Then you think to yourself, "wow what was I thinking". To me, this book is sort of like that. It reflects on what we should be focusing on in life and where our loyalties should be.
It didn't take long for me to read this book because it kept my attention and I enjoyed reading it. It was a thorough, yet not extremely long and drawn out book, that gets to the point of the "story".
