I’m a fan of Pete Wilson. He’s comes across as a pretty down to earth guy in his preaching (you can catch him online at Cross Point Church) and on his blog and Twitter.

So when I had the chance to review his second book Empty Promises, it was quite easy to say “Yes!”

As with the rest of my experience with Pete, Empty Promises is a down to earth approach with something we all struggle with. We all struggle with idols. Whether it’s our self-image, power, acceptance, or another of the personal marks of success the world attempts to push on us, Pete deals with each of them in a real way, offering alternatives and support for those who struggle.

As I was reading through this book, many faces of people I know passed through my mind who might benefit from reading such a book. A book that offers hope that even in our struggles we are still God’s. We are still loved by something far greater than we can ever truly realize.

Do you find yourself chasing empty promises? Chasing things that don’t…. can’t… ever fulfill your needs in life? Then pick up Pete’s book. Let him help you realize there is something much greater offered to you.
