Finally, a book that explains how to know God's will Jan 12, 2008
Most books on the will of God teach how to make good decisions. Dr. Thrasher's book explains how we truly come to know God's will.
A quote I have often used in my own teaching comes from this book, "God's will is exactly what you would desire if you knew all the facts."
Another profound statement concerning Galations 4:8-11 Thrasher makes in the book, "When we lose sight of knowing God as our personal heavenly Father, our Christian lives dwindle to a life of traditions and rituals." Simple, but profound.
I recommmend this book to any Christian who wants to know God better and do His will.
Great book on the Character of God Jul 6, 2001
This is a great book. The title is a little deceptive but it calls us to get back to a right perspective on God's will and that begins with understanding what God is really like. Thrasher's approach to the character of God reminds me of books by Tozer and J I Packer. If you like that stuff you'll love this. It is very readable and extremely practical in its suggestions. A must read!
