Item description for Choice, Desire and the Will of God: What More Do You Want? by David Runcorn & Rowan Williams...
Overview Do you wonder what God wants from you? Do you know what you want? Examine the excitement, burden, and astounding implications of free will---and develop a deeper prayer life and more honest faith. Runcorn's humorous and cliche-debunking study challenges you toward maturity in the sometimes difficult, always rewarding reality of a relationship with God.
Publishers Description Do we know what we really want in life--what would truly satisfy us? Do we ever wonder what God wants for us or from us?
David Runcorn looks at the implications of free will, its excitements and its burdens. Speaking plainly and movingly about struggles with faith and life, about hope and exhilaration, he dares to question many familiar approaches to God, Christian life, and action.
In seeking a faith that has integrity, he faces tough questions of desire, and estrangement from God with poetic vigor and accuracy, debunking crusty cliches and calling us to "grow up" in the hard joyful reality of the human side of a relationship with God.
Choice, Desire and the Will of God: What More Do You Want? offers something for readers of all traditions.
In a life brimming with possibilities, this wise, funny, and challenging book may inspire you in ways you least expect.
