From the back cover:
 What you believe about God affects the way you approach life—often in ways you don’t realize. Are you convinced that God limits you, or liberates you? Is he more interested in correcting you or connecting with you? And when you hit a rough spot and start looking for help, do you believe God is against you or on your side?
In The Gospel of Yes, Mike Glenn reveals God’s most powerful word, which opens our eyes to everything he does. That word is YES. God said “yes” to creating a world for us to live in and “yes” to inviting us into a relationship with him. No matter what we face in life, the best way to live is captured in one word: yes.
When you live in God’s “yes” you find your identity, your true value, and your unique purpose on earth. You can stop trying to be someone else and enjoy being yourself as you join with God in doing the work of his kingdom. When God looks at you he always says “yes.” It’s time to live like you know it.

Wow! This book left me saying, "Wow!"  Go pre-order it! I think that this will end up being #1 on my 2012 book list; it was that good.

Have you ever felt like you weren’t measuring up to God’s expectations?   Have you felt that no matter how hard you worked, you just weren’t good enough?  This book is for you.  It is a powerful reminder of God’s grace, love and purpose for our life.  It is like a breath of fresh air to anyone who has felt like they are drowning in a sea of expectations.

About three years ago, God used another book to make me realize how many false conceptions I had about him.  Not since that book have I been so blessed or so moved by a book.  This book made me not only feel closer to God, it made me want to share my faith more with the people around me. Any book that does that is wonderful.

What I liked about it:
Mike Glenn wrote this book in the context of what had personally happened to him.  So many books, even good books, are written because the author wants to share some facts.  This felt more like it had sprouted out of an overwhelming desire to share what God had done in his life.

Mike Glenn seemed to know exactly how much scripture to use. There is quite a bit, so you see him backing up what he says with scripture, but not so much that you start skimming through the book.  This balance is hard to achieve, but he did it.

The message of the book is something that so many people need to hear. I have read a few books with the same message, but none of them were written in a way that I felt most people would pick them up.  The message is definitely one that I needed to hear, and I am sure will be a blessing to many others.

What I didn’t like about it:
The script seemed a bit small to me.  Other than that, there is nothing wrong with it.

I encourage everyone to get a copy of The Gospel of Yes by Mike Glenn as soon as you can.  It is a must read for every Christian.

I received this book from WaterBrook Press (through Blogging for Books) in exchange for my honest review.  I was under no obligation to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
