When life doesn’t follow a straight-line path

detoursBook Review: Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny, by Tony Evans

How do you make sense of life when it takes a different path than you thought? Why does God allow delays and detours in your growth and progress? What is he trying to accomplish by introducing a detour into your life? Is it possible to shorten a detour and speed up your progression in your personal growth?

These are the questions Dr. Tony Evans seeks to answer in his latest book, Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny. Tony uses the story of Joseph in Genesis 37-50 to illustrate and explain the purpose and design of a detour and how God uses them to prepare us for the destiny he has created for us. The author combines biblical exposition, practical application, vivid illustrations, and humorous stories to help make his points.

Having preached on the life of Joseph previously, I found the book to be insightful in pointing out ideas and principles I had missed in my own study. The book is helpful, practical, and enjoyable to read.

Disclosure: I received this book free from B&H Publishing through the B&H/Lifeway Bloggers program The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
