Andy Stanley – Ask It: The Question That Will Revolutionize How You Make Decisions

Andy Stanley ask itAre you wondering which question author and pastor Andy Stanley means in Ask It: The Question That Will Revolutionize How You Make Decisions? The one question that will ease answering thousands of other daily questions on what, how and when. In the light of your past experience, your current circumstances, and your future hopes and dreams, what is the wise thing for you to do? By this approach you’ll flee from arguments like ‘there’s nothing wrong in…’ or ‘as long as I don’t ….it’s not sin, right?’ It is possible to live life with few regrets. Wisdom begins with fearing God and recognizing that there are principles and rules that for the ‘game called life’. Procrastination and spending time on random urgent activities, constantly interfering strategic deposits of time, is worse than wasting time. We often waste our lives. Whenever we think that topics like sexuality, relationship, money, marriage, family, work are our own business, we neglect that private choices have public consequences.

Stanley leads you through his extensive experience as pastor dealing with the consequences of bad choices and avoiding answering that one single outstanding question that really needs to be asked. A relative large part is devoted to the field of sexuality, and the slippery slope of interactions with people of the other gender. While Stanley acknowledges his positions may sound legalistic, and can’t be forced upon his readers, he truly upholds his beliefs and benefits from these. King Solomon‘s proverbs and Paul’s instructions to the Ephesians back up Ask It from the Bible. The author included several exercises and a study guide, with a companion DVD, to help you really absorb and apply this crucial message. A free PDF of the first chapter is available here.
