Publishers Description In our 20s we make the most significant and formative decisions of our entire lives. We decide what career to choose and whom to marry, how we will spend our money, where we will live, what type of people we will surround ourselves with, and generally what will be the guiding force(s) of our lives. Ironically, these choices are made at a time when the most wisdom is needed but the least is possessed. As a 30-year-old Christian who has sought God's leading in making many of the above decisions, Colin Creel sets out to share both what he's learned as well as the advice of some older, wiser men and women who can look back with discernment of the life-molding decisions all twentysomethings face. By addressing such topics as romance, work, friendship, character development, and spiritual formation, this devotional book offers life-changing daily tidbits of wisdom for the searching Christian twentysomething.

Deep and relevant Sep 8, 2006
It's a deep, relevant devotional for 20-29 year olds. This book covers everything from Trusting God's sovereignty to learning when to wait for a spouse. A must buy for all kinds of situations.
nice concept for the 20-something Dec 6, 2005
There were times in this book that I read ah-ha moments, underlining them to share with the amazing 20-somethings in our lives, but there were also moments that I wished that the author had shared more in-depth.
What I do applaud is his honesty, his relevance, his personal journey. There are many things in this book that 20-somethings can take away and put into practice. The Points to Ponder are great questions for small cell settings or for interactive discussions.
Great read for 20-somethings Jul 19, 2005
I'm 21, and a recent college grad. This book has been such a good help. My mom flipped through it and said she wished she had this book in her twenties. The content really helped address some of the concerns and realize that I'm not alone in my fears. I highly reccommend this book to all twenty-somethings who aren't quite sure where they're going in life, and even those who are.
Read it! Love it! Live it! jk, this is a good book though Jun 16, 2005
I think this book is a must have for college students. A-Team member, Colin Creel, asked questions that I had already been considering, but his questions present a whole new angle. His writing really gets to the core of the questions and made me think more deeply, more effectively than I had been. I agree with Fran-- I loved the "What makes you pound the table?" question. Like Annie, I will also be re-reading many chapters.
Sound advice May 15, 2005
As a recent university graduate, I found myself facing many difficult decisions about my career, relationships, and God's will for my life. I turned to Creel's book for some seasoned wisdom and found just what I was looking for. Perspectives offers practical advice on just about every issue facing a twenty-something. If you're a twenty-something feeling overwhelmed by difficult decisions and are willing to listen to a different "perspective", I would strongly recommend this book.
