Publishers Description The phrase "the will of God" is used loosely, says Leslie Weatherhead, and the consequence of that looseness to our peace of mind is serious. Weatherhead's recognition of this problem led him to write The Will of God, a classic that has helped more than a million grieving persons better understand the meaning of the phrase. It can help you as well.
It was during the tumultuous era of World War II that Leslie Weatherhead preached five sermons on understanding the will of God for the congregation at City Temple in London. These sermons became the classic book The Will of God, which has helped hundreds of thousands of Christians explore how God's will is related to God's character and ultimate intentions for us.
A six-week workbook study is also available that uses three case studies to illustrate the questions that arise in understanding the book #9780687008407.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Will of God?
Not my will, but His Mar 8, 2007
Our grief workshop leader recommended this book to our group. While it can't answer all questions, it does offer an interesting perspective as to why God intervenes for good sometimes, but not others. For someone struggling for the "whys," this is a good read.
A gem of a book Nov 9, 2006
The Will of God is a remarkable little book simply cramed full of insightful prose to help us understand God's will for our lives. This is a very misunderstood subject, and much sorrow comes from misunderstanding. Weatherhead was ahead of his time in writing this during the 1940's. I highly recommend it for private or class study.
Inspirational and Comforting Jun 17, 2006
I did not read this because I was mourning but still this is a must read. A book of God's love for us. After reading so many books full of fire and brimstone, I needed this.
An Absolute Must Have May 8, 2006
Of all the Christian books that I have read (and they are many), none have had the impact that came with reading this one particular book. It alone is the book that I have most given away to others to read. Weatherhead lays out in an very easy and non-heavy-handed way the question of What is God's Will?
It is actuall a collection of sermons in a series of sermons written and delivered by Weatherhead his church in England during World War II, a time when so many where asking that very question. Every person exploring this question and every Christian especially, should read this book.
It is a quick read that packs a wallop of a punch and hits you square between the eyes with it's simple logic and view. I simple cannot phathom anyone coming away from reading this book without being profoundly moved and possesing a better understanding of the relationship between God and mankind.
The Will of God? Where was He in Katrina, Baghdad? Oct 11, 2005
An exceptional book dealing with exceptionally important qustions: Where was God? Why did God allow this to happen? What is the Will of God? And, ultimately, if God is in control, and if He is a God of Love, why does He let bad things happen? What kind of God could let these things happen? This book not only addresses but answers those eternal questions. Weatherhead makes sense of the seemingly senseless.
Written in World War II, another time in which God's will was being brought into question, an example used in the book is somewhat dated in its attitude toward women, but one example set in a specific time period,should not detract from the book's oveall thrust: The Will of God in our lives. What is it? Where is it (He) when bad things hapen? This book makes sense of it all. Read it. You will understand as never before...
