I’ve had this book for some time, and I had started it before the new year, and so that’s why I was able to finish it so Closely to The Shack.
Going All The Way is a well written look at relationships and priorities. And I liked the title so much that I am going to Use it for a series that we are launching this week. (Full Disclosure is a good thing.) It starts at looking at what truly is important as people prepare for marriage, and then progresses to finding the right person, setting the right priorites, commited to each other, true intimacy with your spouse, and a lifelong covenant.
Great book. Having heard Craig’s sermons before he writes just like he preaches, so the book goes quickly, and really gets to the point. I never felt like he was drawing out the point for no good reason. There are a lot of things that are applicable to Middle School and High School students.
Having been a 12 year old boy before, I wish I would have had a resource like this to help me set my priorities better. Growing up I was told that sex is bad, girls are danger and don’t do anything stupid. But somehow I missed, or it wasn’t really presented, that our relationship with God should be our top Priority. It wasn’t until my Senior Year in High School that I was convinced of this point.
So Youth Pastors, College Pastors, Singles Pastors, Pastors Pastors, I would recommend you pick up this book.
