In Ask It, Andy Stanley identifies the one question that makes it easy to determine the answer to all other questions. You'll learn how to make decisions with confidence simply by applying the question that brings clarity to life's most challenging decisions.
 
 

My Review

 
A special thank you to  WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers and NetGalley for a complimentary reading copy in exchange for an honest review. 
 
ASK IT: The Question That Will Revolutionize How You Make Decisions, by Andy Stanley is a guide to life’s challenging questions, and the principle behind this valuable question drawn from years of his life’s journey –a life message. 

We all have regrets and do not get do overs. Possibly our regret could have been avoided if we had asked a particular question and acted upon it. In hind sight the conclusion would most likely have been different. 

Divided into six helpful parts, where you apply the key question to the areas of your life, offering a new perspective for your relationships, love life, career, financial, and family life.
 
  • The Question is an introduction of the big question.
  • The Alternatives offers common and dangerous alternatives to asking the big question.
  • A Question of Mortality and Wisdom for Asking (two chapters) about applying the question to our lives, time, and relationships.
  • The Best Decision Ever is the secret known to all the best decision makers.
  • Study Guide is a challenge to reach the best decision and receive maximum benefit from the question.

Stanley mentions this is a principle behind this valuable question drawn from years of his life’s journey – A life’s message. What is the wise thing to do?” But it’s not always an easy question to ask. Sometimes it can be a bit threatening, because it exposes so much about our hearts and our motives. But that’s just one more reason it’s so revolutionizing.

Andy directs our attention to Proverbs 28:26. Why does living wisely require a certain lack of trust in ourselves? Those who trust in themselves are fools. But those who walk in wisdom are kept safe. Regret-free living is found on the path of wisdom. His message is a hope that you will walk wisely and experience God’s deliverance in all the days of your life.

And if we’re honest with ourselves, God will use this question in the deepest parts of our lives to help take us to the place of our fullest potential. Stanley encourages us to use the question as it becomes a permanent part of our decision making process to guide and protect us in the days to come. Ephesians 5:15-17

ASK IT is a revised and updated version of his earlier book, The Best Question Ever (2004) with an added section (wise person, fool, and the mocker from Proverbs) which replaces the money section and also contains a helpful study guide as we learn to walk as wise men.

Having read Andy Stanley’s books for years, and an active member of the Buckhead Church, part of the North Point Ministries, in Atlanta; having served as pre-school leader, as well as a small group leader, under his leadership, before moving to West Palm Beach, FL several years ago, I highly recommend his insights and wisdom with this helpful book to help guide us on our daily path and journey to God’s will, in an easy to follow format. 

Would also recommend The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating by Andy Stanley (currently reading an advanced reading copy), coming 1/15/2015, as he explores the challenges, assumptions, and land mines associated with dating in the twenty-first century. Best of all, he offers the most practical and uncensored advice you will ever hear on this topic.
