The Christian life is often defined as "no." What starts with a desire to reject descructive things morphs into a "no" to people, enjoyment, laughter, pleasure, success, and ultimately life itself. Before we know it, we've reduced the Christian faith to a huge rejection of just about everything God has created. Is it any wonder why many in our culture think of Christianity and "no" comes to mind?
We need perspective. We need more than just "no." We need to experience a divine "yes" to all of life as a gift from God.
Ecclesiastes, through Solomon's journals, gives us a huge dose of reality. Solomon's entire experience is a counterintuitive "yes" to God and every aspect of life. It provides a framework for a faith that squares off with reality and finds it infused with meaning.
THE GOD OF YES will explore this counterintuitive approach and provide clear application on how faith can infuse meaning to the monotony of everyday life. It will flip Ecclesiastes upside down to show that it is actually affirming life in all of its parts with God at the center. It will challenge the reader that his or her life can look different even if nothing changes externally.

This is a good book that could have been better if Mr. Wilhite had not relied so heavily on the works of others to make his points, as well as not been redundant with the reference to certain Scriptures within the same chapter.

Despite all of this, as I said this is a good book.

The things that I liked most about this book were the mathematical equations that Mr. Wilhite presents as it relates to both God and Heaven, citing the source of the popular misconception that 'God helps those who help themselves', the clarification of what Wisdom truly is, and the offering to me what were fresh perspectives on 'bribes' and 'extortion'.

The one thing that I most appreciate about this book is Mr. Wilhite's candor about his vice and shortcomings. I am of the opinion that not many Christian authors would do that, which just gives Mr. Wilhite more credibility as not only an author but as a Christian.

This is definitely a book worth taking the time to read.
