Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God's will don't work. It's time to try something new: Give up.
Pastor and bestselling author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God's people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives. Or-even worse-they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting... waiting... waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.
But God doesn't need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He's already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.
No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.
Now Included: An 8-session study guide! Perfect for use in leading a small group, bible study, or book club.

"God told me that He wants you to read this book. Actually, that is one of the many mistaken notions about God's will that Kevin DeYoung wants to correct."
Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition
"The truth is that God is more committed to showing you His will than you are to discovering it. This book shows that discovering God's will happens not as we 'let go and let God,' but as we trust God and get going."
Tullian Tchividjian, Senior Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
"DeYoung explains so well what Oswald Chambers wrote a century ago, 'Trust God and do the next thing.' Sadly, our wrongheaded search for the elusive 'will of God' often prevents us from doing both. This book will help correct the problem."
Gerald L. Sittser, Professor of Theology, Whitworth University
"I try to keep a stack of these handy because it's my easy-to-read, practical, go-to help for people discerning God's will for their lives."
Thabiti Anyabwile, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman
"One of the best books on guidance I've read."
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
"False understandings of God's will infect so much of popular Christianity. The church desperately needs a rescue from this confusion. Thankfully, Kevin DeYoung offers that much needed rescue in 'Just Do Something.' Live the title to God's glory, but read this excellent book first."
Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
