Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny by Dr. Tony Evans

Book review disclosure.

Christian Living / Spiritual Growth

God has a plan for your life. 

More often than not, it’s a detour, one that can leave you feeling temporarily stalled and slowed down. Which nobody likes. But detours are necessary if any improvements are going to be made on the paths we travel. Or if any wreck is going to be cleaned up or a hazard avoided. Detours are designed for our own good, regardless of how we view or feel about them.

Detours are a good thing that often feels bad.

Tony knows a thing or two about detours, and one of the things he knows for certain is that God works through detours to bring about His blessing. To deliver you to the place He has created just for you. Yet what we often do is try as hard as we can to work our own way to the circumstances we believe are best for us.

Using examples from the life of Joseph, Tony will leave readers with answers to the following questions:
  • How do you find the destiny God has designed for your life?
  • How can you make the most of the detours God has planned for you?
  • Is there a way to shorten a detour and speed up your progression in life?
  • What is the purpose of a detour?

My Thoughts

If you've lived any time at all I can guarantee you've experienced a detour. Maybe it's been a short one or maybe it's gone on a long time. Sometimes they seem to come in succession. Some are painful, some are tedious and some may even be a pleasant diversion. Regardless every one of them are part of the journey towards our ultimate destiny.

In his own unique way Dr. Evans takes us on a journey through the life of Joseph. Along the way we experience Joseph's detours towards his destiny and apply each twist and turn to our own circumstances. I personally don't think I'll ever look at the life of Joseph in the same way. I'm a church girl so the story is almost overly familiar. This was a refreshing new look at God's sovereignty. 

If you are experiencing a detour of your own you need this book. Detours can be depressing. And by nature they are quite unpredictable. But this book will remind you that there is purpose in everything. What is going on in your life isn't only about you. God uses every one of us to complete His plan in His way and in His timing. 

If you enjoy the teaching ministry of Dr. Evans you will most certainly enjoy this book. It is written in his distinctive voice. I felt like I could actually hear him reading to me in my head. There is also a follow-up Bible study that would be nice for a small group.
