Book review of Andy Stanley's Collision book

When Work and Family Collide  by Andy Stanley

When I had a chance to read another Andy Stanley book I jumped at it. But after I started reading it I discovered that I was reading a Stanley book which had been retitled.  The old title was “Choosing to Cheat”.  Considering it perhaps a divine nudge I decided to reread the book.  Turns out that the timing for me to reread this challenging book was good.  I would recommend this book to anyone with a busy life schedule.

Stanley does an excellent job of objectively looking at the facts involved in our decision process of determining what activities we participate in.  This book challenges readers to take a good look that the message that their choices send to their families.  Stanley goes after the prevailing thought that we have that to sacrifice time with our family today so that we can give them a better life tomorrow.  We are encouraged in this book that our actions speak louder than our intentions.

Definitely a book worth reading twice.  I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  Check out the first chapter at
