Publisher's Summary

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:

  • How do you find the destiny God has designed for your life?
  • How can you make the most of the detours God has planned for you?
  • Is there a way to shorten a detour and speed up your progression in life?
  • What is the purpose of a detour?

    Story
    "Tony puts detours in perspective!"
    Would you listen to Detours again? Why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think understanding the story of how our life is like that of an eagle.


    Which character – as performed by J.D. Jackson – was your favorite?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    God's plan and what the "detours" mean.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Wonderful book using Joseph to see our destiny"
    What made the experience of listening to Detours the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    A fresh look into Joseph's life and understanding all the detours orchestrated by God is amazing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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

    Story
    "Recommended to anyone going through hard times!"

    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!

    "Simply Amazing!"

    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!
