Empty Promises Book Review by Pete Wilson


If you have ever dealt with disappointment, discouragement, or defeat because of what you believed to be unanswered prayers, this book will give you perspective and encouragement to continue to fight. 

Author Pete Wilson, pastor of Cross Point Church dissects the feelings of defeat and discouragement we feel when it seems that we’ve been forgotten or things are not going our way.  We live in a time where have a vision for your life and setting goals are a normal way of life.  I believe goal setting and establishing a vision for your life is essential to moving for life forward.

However, just as the devil has always done since the beginning of creation, he’s taken the good and corrupted it for bad.  Pete calls this “empty promises”.  Pete talks about the waiting rooms of life and how during those moments, there is a tendency to throw in the towel and quit. 

Believing God and trusting in his Wisdom and plan for our life can be uncomfortable, when it appears nothing is happen and there is no progress.  We live in the age of progress.  We need to “see” something happening, we need to see growth, whether it’s financial growth, church growth, career growth, family growth, when we don’t see things happening we can become discouraged.

In empty promises the author lays out practical wisdom to having true satisfaction which can only be found in Jesus Christ.  So, if you are in a season where you’ve pondered throwing in the towel and quitting.  Maybe, you feel that God has forgotten about you, this book will renew your hope and give you clarity on “life empty promises”.

Note: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. Other than that, neither the publisher, author nor anyone connected to them offered any influence on the content of my review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.
