Books Every Lay Person Should Read: Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

Our first book up in the series is Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung.

Who is the author? Kevin is a pastor in the RCA in Lansing, Michigan.

What is the book about? This book deals with the question of how to know God's will.

Why is this book worth reading? There is a lot of confusion out there among those who identify as evangelicals. People typically aren't sure how to know God's will or they are too confident that they know His will. One paralyzes and the other becomes coercive. Kevin does a great job of laying out a biblical understand of God's will, what we can know, what we can't know, and how we are to live as those who wish to please our Father in heaven. Even if you aren't currently struggling with a major life decision or you think you know what God's will is, I highly recommend this book.
