Synopsis

God would like a word with you

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.
 
Includes Discussion Questions for Personal and Group Use.

I like the basic message of this book which is a call to focus on what God says "yes" to instead of the "no's".

...does a great job of dismantling our misconceptions about God’s character and repaints a biblical picture of a God who is passionate about his glory and our good.

...is positive and encouraging, but not in the feel-good, prosperity gospel sense. Glenn wants the reader to see God as the God of love who pursues his children and desires to help them in the kingdom.

Reviewed by Benjamin Allen Potter on May 29 2012

What Glenn does that sets his book apart from others who challenge the church to be Christ-like is to put a handle on what it takes to simplify, and do it radically.

I found a familiar pattern; many of the passages reference a certain person, time and point not a common message to all. In most examples, it does not apply but is taken as a fragmented part of scripture to fit a certain key topic...
