The image on the front has almost Seuss-like feel to it, and that's reflected in the book where the author mentions being inspired by one of Dr Seuss's books. The theme pops up a few times in this book, giving a little light relief. It's a book about opportunities. Ortberg examines what the Bible says about 'call' and 'God's will', and mentions misunderstandings that are popular amongst Christian circles. Early in the book he explains why some people are inclined to take risks and go through 'doors' - a metaphor for any opportunity - and why some are more likely to stick with the status quo. I very much appreciated this clear and thought-provoking book. I love Ortberg's writing style, and would recommend this book highly to Christian believers of any background. The author is not dogmatic, but asks questions, makes comments, and most of all shows God as a loving father who calls us into a greater relationship.
About This Item
Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “Stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the life we will lead and the person we will become. In fact, to fail to embrace the open door is to miss the work God has made for us to do.
In All the Places to Go . . . How Will You Know?, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless doors God places before us every day, teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await.
So go ahead—walk through that door. You just might do something that lasts for eternity.
