As one who has wrestled with many unmet expectations in my life, Plan B is an incredible reminder of the importance of surrender and the Hope of the cross. This book doesn't gloss over hardships with religious cliches, it comforts with the reality that we are not alone. I am so excited for readers to experience the relevant teaching that I have the privilege of receiving every weekend from Pete at Cross Point Church.

Pete is one of the nicest, most caring pastors I have ever met. He defenitely has a heart for the people and desires to see lives transformed for Christ. His book "Plan B" is a fantastic book written for those of us whose lives didn't exactly turn out the way we had planned. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It doesn't matter whether you are on Plan B,C, or D of your life!

Chris Emmitt, Pastor of 1pm service at Community Bible Church, San Antonio, TX

Pete Wilson offers us a wonderfully practical and biblical guide to receive God and His gifts amidst the sufferings and disappointments of life. A great read. I highly recommend it.

Pete Scazzero, pastor/author of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality and The Emotionally Healthy Church.

Pete Wilson presents a compelling case for Christians who face pain, disappointment and tragedy to not give up on God but to trust in His all-sufficient grace. Pete debunks the myth that God prospers all who place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ by relieving pain and suffering and ensuring tragedy only befalls those who do not believe. Through real life examples, Pete shows us the stark reality is that everyone experiences trials and tribulations—some self-inflicted but most are beyond our control. Each one of us can experience spiritual transformation by surrendering our “Plan B” to God.

I recommend Plan B for anyone who’s life isn’t turning out like they’d hoped. Pete refuses trite answers and simplistic solutions, instead he helps us believe that hope is possible and that God has not forgotten us. Do you live in the real world and face real storms? This book leads you to the One who promises to be the anchor you’re searching for.

Pete Hise, Lead Pastor, Quest Community Church

Pete has done an incredible job of tackling one of the most challenging realities faced by a Christian – that life doesn’t always work out the way we plan. Plan B will help you chart a course to successfully navigate difficult seasons as well as equip you to help others facing “Plan B” situations in their lives. Plan B is a must read!;

David Landrith, Senior Pastor, Long Hollow Baptist Church

If your life is going according to plan, if your pain level is low and your ease meter is high, you probability don’t need this book. But for the rest of us, I am glad it’s around.

John Ortberg, Pastor and Author, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

I most appreciate this book for its honesty. Pete Wilson avoids the easy answers that we have all heard about suffering. With real-life stories, the wisdom of Scripture, and an authentic search for the redeeming dimension of tragedy, this book will serve all of us who wrestle with what to do when life doesn’t deliver us what we expected.

Nancy Beach, Willow Creek Association

In a generation that faces ever increasing disappointment with life, this book masterfully reminds us that God is at work and turns everything around for good. As you read "Plan B", you will sense the genuine love and concern from a pastor who cares. Well done Pete.

Chris Hodges, Senior Pastor, Church of the Highlands

What do you do when you wake up with shattered dreams and unmet expectations? Pete Wilson’s book, Plan B, offers honest encouragement and spiritual insights when life doesn’t go as planned.

Craig Groeschel — Senior Pastor of LifeChurch.tv, Author of The Christian Athiest

Pete Wilson is a young, dynamic leader with a growing church and a heart to see people reach out and find Christ in the midst of any and every circumstance. His sincerity and desire to disarm some of life’s difficult twists and turns with Godly perspective will help anyone struggling with lifes realities and ‘Plan B’.

Brian Houston, Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church.

Pete dives headlong into real life. While there he hands you the tools to dig your way out of the paralysis your past may have produced. Every Small Group leader and every Sunday School teacher should read this book and after doing so, lead their group on this journey into freedom.

Rick Howerton

If Plan A for your life isn't working out too well, you're not alone. Plan B will help you make sense of life's frustrations and disappointments. The stories in Plan B will remind you once again that God, who began a good work in you, will be faithful to complete it. Pete Wilson is a passionate voice for the new generation of Christians. He is a man who lives what he writes.

Robert Emmitt, Community Bible Church

Hope is packaged and sold in many different ways in our society. Truth is, it's often wrapped with false promises and an unrealistic view of life. This is why Plan B is such an important book. Pete deals openly and honestly with the disappointments we have all experienced, while pointing us to a hope that endures, sustains and overcomes. We all know people who have walked away from God because of Plan B experiences, not realizing that these are the moments God uses the most. Pete shows that you don't have to deny the reality of what you face. You simply need to embrace the reality of a God who loves you and is greater than your greatest disappointment. After all, His Plan B for your life is the best plan of them all.

Jeff Henderson, Pastor, Buckhead Church

Pete Wilson is a tremendous communicator whose warmth and care for people are evident on every page of this fantastic book. Plan B is a powerful resource for the detours of our lives. I wish this book would have been available years ago when some of my Plan A's crashed, but I'm so thankful for the wisdom of its pages for my Plan B's today.

Jud Wilhite, Senior Pastor of Central Christian Church; author, Eyes Wide Open

Pete Wilson is a fresh voice for all today who wonder if they’ve missed God’s best life and are relegated to gathering dust. He provides honest hope, a sound biblical base, and real answers. What also touched me as a reader was his warmth and authenticity. A great read for us all.

Dr. John Townsend, author of Boundaries

While reading Plan B, I cheered, wept, and rediscovered parts of my faith that I'd long given up on finding. Like a conversation with an old friend, Pete Wilson's reflections about God and life are engaging, sensitive, and moving. As far as I'm concerned, if you're working on plan A, Plan B is a good prerequisite.

Matthew Paul Turner, author of Churched and Hear No Evil

Pete Wilson reminds us that Jesus is waiting to meet us in the debris field of our shattered dreams and dashed expectations. It is against the backdrop of life’s wreckage that the power of the cross is seen and the tender hand of God discovered.

Ian Morgan Cron, speaker, and author of Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale

Pete Wilson tells the truth. Following Jesus is hard…really hard. Plan B is not another book filled with pat answers to life’s most painful questions; it is a bold yet gracious exploration of how the love of God sustains when the broken dreams and shattered expectations of life threaten to overwhelm us.

Ian Morgan Cron, speaker, and author of Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale

No matter what you're going through, Plan B will help you get through it. Plan B is a down to earth book written by a down to earth pastor. Authentic hope is only a book away!
