God has a plan for your life. More often than not, it's a detour - one that can leave you feeling temporarily stalled and slowed down. Which nobody likes. But detours are necessary if any improvements are going to be made on the paths we travel. Or if any wreck is going to be cleaned up or a hazard avoided. Detours are designed for our own good, regardless of how we view or feel about them. Detours are a good thing that often feels bad. Tony knows a thing or two about detours, and one of the things he knows for certain is that God works through detours to bring about his blessing. To deliver you to the place he has created just for you. Yet what we often do is try as hard as we can to work our own way to the circumstances we believe are best for us.
Using examples from the life of Joseph, Tony will leave listeners with answers to the following questions:

Life beyond fear. Detours are not the end
Detours are not the end. Great book
Love this book. it's amazing how God can show you little things that have brought you to where you are in life. The performance was just ok to me. I wish Tony had read this one he's so amazing!
Yes, I love the story of Joseph, and when I am feeling "lost" in my detours I have to remember that this is God's will and he is in control.
I think understanding the story of how our life is like that of an eagle.
The narrator was a little more mono-tone, I wish he had been as upbeat as Tony. I would have to say the story of Joseph was my favorite.
God's plan and what the "detours" mean.
I loved this book, it really puts "detours" in perspective. If you are wondering about your circumstances and why it "appears" that God is not with you, Please listen to Tony explain Joseph's story. He waited a long time for God to provide and he went through up and downs just like us. We need to trust that God is in control.
Great book with deep meaning that it hard stop each day after just one chapter. Opens our eyes to detours being God's way of getting us to our destiny. Real life and Biblical examples made it all more real and captivating to listen to.
Knowing and understand that God has a plan for each of our lives makes all the detours we experience worth every day we live. Dr Evans has an excellent way of teaching and writing that captivated the reader/listener.
A fresh look into Joseph's life and understanding all the detours orchestrated by God is amazing.
Very moving to truly grasp that God has a plan for each of us and He loves us too much to leave us where we are!
Wonderful book and his sermon series goes along great with it if you download app and listen to them (starting 1/2017). I also purchased the audio version of the book and have listened to it twice while driving. God created each of us for a destiny. He desires to teach us. Learn to let go of your own plans and your own will and seek HIM first. We each have a life-calling that God has or is equipping us for to bring Him Glory and expand His Kingdom. We all, EVERYONE, has a purpose to fulfill. God created us to bring Him glory, bless others, and expand His kingdom. We are all masterpieces created by God. He loves us. He loves us so much He will not let us stay on the path we are on, He sends DETOURS to mold, shape and develop us into who He created us to be st just the right time. Read this excellent book to learn more about Joseph and his life of detours and how it applies to our lives today. Thisi s an engaging and very impactful book that you can't put down! Detours are part of our destiny to get us where we need to be...God has a plan for each of us! #detoursbook
Tony Evans interweave exogesis and anecdotes that help us both empathize with Joseph and understand the painful detours of our lives
GREAT BOOK. I'm going through a situation that seems impossible to get out of. Through a very extended time of trial, testing and tribulations. This is just what I needed to read/hear.
So much that after listening to the audio book I got the physical book so I can read it again and make some notes. And maybe I'll gift it forward because I'm sure I'll encounter someone that will need this.
I've recommended this to many others, just like it was recommended for me to read.
I would've personally preferred Mr. Evans to have read it himself, I'm sure he would've given better emphasis to some key points. But the reader did a great job nonetheless.
This is a great book for any reader seeking more purpose in their life. It brings a new perspective into the story of Joseph of Egypt, and relates it to all of us finding God's destiny for each of us. I highly recommend it!
The story of Joseph is an amazing one and Pastor Tony Evans presented it in such a way that the blessings and practical application seemingly jump off the page. A book EVERYONE should read! Detours lead to Destiny and you become all God has created you to be in the process! Thanking God for the gift!
This book is a must read for the Christian who is serious about his/her walk with God. We all experience detours. This book will give you the perspective and wisdom that you need to navigate through those difficult times.
