#8 in 09: The Principle of the Path

I finished Andy Stanley’s most recent book, The Principle of the Path, last week. Andy is one of those guys that seems to have figured out how to get from here to there, so I figured I’d read his book about how to get from where I am to where I want to be.

Here are some of the highlights from my reading:

  • “To get from where we don’t want to be to where we do want to be requires two things: time and a change of direction.”
  • “Direction–not intentions, hopes, dreams, prayers, beliefs, intellect, or education–determines destination.”
  • “We should break the habit of drawing a circle around individual decisions and events and dismissing them as isolated occurrences. These are steps. Steps that lead somewhere.”
  • “Prudent people look as far down the road as possible when making decisions.”
  • “Christians start talking about forgiveness as if somehow forgiveness serves as an escape hatch from the outcome of bad decisions.”

By the way, out of full disclosure, I received this book for free from the publisher. Most of the books I read are free from publishers or authors. With that said, this was a great book.
