Empty Promises - Pete Wilson

The truth about you, your desires, and the lies you're believing.  Many of us believe the lies about ourselves that the world gives us.  Pete Wilson reminds us that we don't have to believe these empty promises and reminds us "You don't have to be in charge, because you have a God who's got your back. You have to surrender."  This is god advice and we all need reminders of God's plan for our life.
The author is founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN.  This book has a foreword by Rick Warren.
The author covers most of the common trappings of this world, money, power, beauty, and even religion itself, with a chapter on each and real world stories of real people that have battled these things. The question he asks and we also need to ask ourselves is "How do we break free from these empty pursuits and start chasing the only Promise that will ever satisfy?" The rest of the book attempts a Biblical answer to this question.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever tried to fill their lives with empty pursuits in order to satisfy the emptiness inside all of us, which is all of us at one point or another.
I have been provided a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze.
