Let's Talk About It:

Darren Wilson writes in a way that is entertaining, and down to earth. I wasn't sure what to expect from his book, or what he would have to say. More advice on how to read the Bible? How to study the Bible?

Things changed when Darren Wilson started saying, "Yes," to God. He started to get to know who God really is. Wilson goes through some interesting stories in the Bible-- most of them are weird, unusual, violent, or confusing. He shares what he has discovered through them-- God's character, His personality, and His desire for relationship. Darren Wilson got to know the God who had wanted a relationship with him even when he barely knew and trusted God. The God he now calls: his friend.

This book was amazing! It definitely has helped me learn more about the personality of God, how He reveals Himself in Scripture (even through the strangest of stories), and what it means when God desires a relationship with me. Highly recommend!
