Review by Chris Smith.
In naming, and denouncing the common paralysis brought on in Western culture by an overabundance of choices, Kevin DeYoung offered in his recent book Just Do Something a fresh – and to use his word, “liberating” – take on the ubiquitous questions in Christian circles about the will of God. Just Do Something, newly released as an audiobook by ChristianAudio, challenges its readers to quit worrying and beginning make commitments. An audiobook is perhaps ideally suited for this book’s target audience, who could listen to it as they flit from one thing to the next, keeping their options open. Although a bit on the monotonic side throughout, narrator Adam Verner does seem to loosen up a bit as the book moves along. Although DeYoung hits squarely on the mark in calling out the prevailing culture’s aversion to commitment, this book’s biggest disappointment is that the Church is relegated to at best a peripheral role in the decision-making process. His take on decision-making is indeed generally liberating, but unfortunately he seems unwilling to consider God’s desire that we be liberated from the greatest tyranny of modern Western culture, that of the self as an isolated decision-maker.
