Book Review: Fifty Shades of They by Ed Young
Who are the "They" in your life? Who are the people that form your friendships, business relationships and what kind of person are you married to or dating? According to Ed Young, you are only as great as your relationships. When you are surrounded by people who follow God's principles that are laid out in this book, your life is bound to be better all the way around. Ed Young also encourages you to reflect the insights shared in this book so that you also become the best person you can be in your relationships.
I found these insights to be helpful. The chapters are short and easy to read. At the same time, there is some good meat in these little chapters. Each chapter's insights is based on Biblical principles. They all offer illustrations from life today or from the Bible that help that insight stick in your mind.For example, I especially found Ed Young's illustration on forgiveness in chapter 12 to be one that would stick with me for awhile as I am reminded I need to forgive those who have wounded me.You'll have to read the book to find out what that is.
I would recommend everyone read this book. It relates to people of all ages, but would be especially good for a high school or college graduation gift. The sooner a person learns the insights in life, the better, I think. I would also think this would be a great book to read along with your Bible reading everyone and focus on one insight of relationships every day to improve.
I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
