Book Review for Tyndale Publishers

Making the Best of a Bad Decision
Erwin W. Lutzer
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 2011.

Many of us make decisions that can set us back many years and sometimes a lifetime. We can all make such mistakes from time to time, and we all have to somehow come to accept those decisions.

If you’re one of these people, and I think that’s could include most of us, Lutzer’s book for you. We all have such times, and they can be absolutely heartbreaking. But as Lutzer explains in his book, we can gain a new perspective on our decisions. And many times, our bad decisions can be used for us to grow in the future.

The worse thing we can do after making a bad decision is to keep having regrets and to keep beating ourselves up. Sometimes, the best thing we can do is to embrace the decision, and the grace of God to move us forward, toward a better future. There is a way to move past the hurt and upheaval of a bad decision. We can clear our conscience to make things right with God and others, and to get to a place of grace and new beginnings. All we have to do is to be willing to do so.

In this book, pastor and author Erwin Lutzer shows us that no matter how many wrong decisions we made, we can still make a right one in the future. We may have married the wrong person, wish we have chosen another profession, or allowed someone to hurt us, we can still marvel at how God can use that bad decision to bring good to us and others.

This book is so hopeful and uplifting. I just absolutely loved reading it, and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling and can’t find the peace that they need to live a healthy and godly life because of a bad decision. We can always make one right choice, and that is to surrender our lives and everything we have to God, even the bad decision. Only God could mend us and heal us.
