Don’t Settle for Safe by Sarah Jakes
Everyone has experiences in their lives that stop them in their tracks and become burdens they carry with them everywhere they go. The author has a strong personal story, and the main themes of the book – that good things usually come from risk taking, that “playing it safe” has its own dangers, and we should not allow setbacks to make us overly risk-averse – are totally valid and need to be said.
Instead of a great principle, deeper explanation of the principle, multiple examples of the principle in action, and suggestions/plans for applying the principle, the reader gets a great principle followed up by cheerleading, slogans, and other relative superficialities. Overall not a bad book, and it’s based on some outstanding insights.
