Story Behind the Book
After continually making decisions that were short-sighted and hasty, Andy Stanley sought counsel. In Ephesians 5:15 he read, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise.” It was there that Andy discovered what he considers to be the best question ever, and it is presented here in this book for teen readers. The goal is for the younger generation to grasp the power of this question, and as they face major (and minor) life decisions, they will make them with confidence. As they move forward making sound decisions every time, they’ll guarantee themselves a future with no regrets! Andy Stanley

Got Kids? Get This !! Jun 14, 2009
May be cliche' but this can definitely be one "gift that keeps on giving". I would HIGHLY recommend it for any of those "transition" ceremonies for youth to young adult; certainly for ages 16 thru college graduation. It could equally benefit a Youth Group, Engagement group, and Newlyweds. But for anyone, at any stage, the "best question(s)ever" can be applied with positive and restorative effects. Just try to ensure with some creative accountability that whoever you give it to will read it. Fish aren't caught with a fishing pole sitting in a corner; so, in the same way this book has value in application/use. And by the way, it is a very easy read: shallow gold !
