The Third Option is a plea on behalf of a brokenhearted God who, scripture teaches, is frustrated with those of us who claim to believe in him but are really “faking the faith”. McPherson argues that we must rise above the issues that divide us and be part of something bigger. The Third Option challenges both believers and seekers to fully embrace God’s goodness and power. McPherson believes that instead of choosing one of two sides, there is a third option - one that’s proven to bring people together, mend relationships, and promote genuine peace in communities.

This book is amazing. It is hard to hear at times but it challenges us to grow. It understands that God has made all of us in His image. That we need to treat others with honor and when we do so it grows us out of our dishonoring prejudices.

This book is very timely and relivent not only for our times but also how we can bring peace through Christ in any time of relational strife and struggle.

A neutral capital straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul has spent the war as a magnet for refugees and spies. Even American businessman Leon Bauer has been drawn into this shadow world, doing undercover odd jobs and courier runs for the Allied war effort. Now, as the espionage community begins to pack up and an apprehensive city prepares for the grim realities of postwar life, he is given one more assignment, a routine job that goes fatally wrong, plunging him into a tangle of intrigue and moral confusion.

This book gave me a strong foundation for improving my productivity. I am glad that I was able to come across it and apply many of its suggestions. I also plan on using it as the basis for my own book on the science of productivity.
