By Mike Glenn

OVERVIEW: 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. 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 leads you, he always says yes. It's time to live like you know it.

AUTHOR: Mike Glenn is the senior pastor of Brentwood Baptist church in Brentwood, Tennessee. He is a graduate of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and received a Master of Divinity and Doctorate of Ministry from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

MY REVIEW: Ah yes! Is The Gospel of Yes a good book? Yes―yes it is!

Mike Glenn says, "We have missed the most important thing about God. Finding it changes everything." He thinks that what you believe about God affects how you approach life―often in ways you don't realize. "When you live in God's 'yes' you find your identity, your true value, and your unique purpose on earth."

Glenn's book comes high recommended by many high profile people such as: Michael Hyatt, chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishers, Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host, Brad Paisley, Grammy Award-winning record artist, Matt Batterson, author, and many others. The forward was written by author and theologian, Scot McKnight.

I agree with Sandra D. Wilson, PhD, seminary professor and author who said, "This is not a 'prosperity gospel, name-it-claim-it' book. This is a 'glorious God, love him and praise Him' book. All Christ-followers will be challenged and encouraged by it. Mike Glenn provides a solid biblical foundation for building authentic relationships with God, with others, and with ourselves."
