Insights from the Book
In our 20s we make the most significant and formative decisions of our entire lives. We decide what career to choose and whom to marry, how we will spend our money, where we will live, what type of people we will surround ourselves with, and generally what will be the guiding force(s) of our lives.
Ironically, these choices are made at a time when the most wisdom is needed but the least is possessed. As a 30-year-old Christian who has sought God’s leading in making many of the above decisions, the author, Colin Creel sets out in this book, to share both what he’s learned as well as the advice of some older, wiser men and women who can look back with discernment of the life-molding decisions all twentysomethings face. By addressing such topics as romance, work, friendship, character development, and spiritual formation, this inspirational book offers life-changing daily tidbits of wisdom for the searching Christian twentysomething.
This book is great, I really love how Creel writes this book. It is both easy reading and deep reading at the same time. It is also very relevant to those in their twenties. I would, however, suggest it to those who are just entering their 20’s. I believe they would draw the most out of the material, but still a great read.
I would suggest reading a chapter a day, maybe as a devotional study. Each chapter has 3 (or so) pages of stories and guidance followed by advice from Christian leaders, and thought provoking questions, so that you can make your own determination on the material you read. This book is very good, buy it!
