“Ask It” by Andy Stanley is a book about a question each person should ask when making any decision. I’m a huge fan of Andy Stanley and this book didn’t disappoint for me. I am a big fan of coaching the staff and volunteers that reports to me. One of the primary ways I encourage them to grow is to ask questions.
Andy leads us to one question that will lead us to make wise choices in life. He encourages teenagers to be taught to ask the question at a young age. He explores that question from multiple facets. The book talks about the alternative to asking the question and the price we pay for ignoring it. We are encouraged us to ask the question in the light of the past, present and future as well in our relationships.
I love what Andy says in the intro: “This is more than another book for me. This is a life message.” Some might dismiss that as bravado but after reading it I agree. I will be using this book to train my staff and volunteers to go beyond just asking questions but to ask the right question.
I would encourage you to pick up this book and read it if you have a heartbeat. I think even more so for anyone who is a leadership position.
