Reviews - What do customers think about Yearning To Know Gods Will?
Faith reader May 7, 2010
A very good book for those who have little or no experience with spiritual discernment. The workbook approach introduces the process gradually and thoughtfully, but those who have had more experience with spiritual discernment may find it too simple.
A Workbook to Determine God's Will Sep 20, 2001
If it was a book on relationships it would be comparable, though a bit more rigorous, to "Are You the One for Me?" by Barbara DeAngelis because it consists of a variety of exercises that help you learn more about God's will, while at the same time leaving it up to how much effort you're willing to give it.
One of its strengths is that it explains two different ways to learn God's will, one that's personal based upon your own prayer, reflection and experiences, the other that's based on a corporate Quaker-style method to learn God's will, which can also be used to determine collective goals for a church, administrative council or study class.
Another strength, which could be a weakness for some, is that it is quite short, though it's set up to take just a little time a day for eight weeks. Another is that it is Biblical based and references several verses. Another is the number and quality of the author's personal examples.
Its main weakness is that it won't tell you God's will, but just give you some tools to help, so it depends on how much time and effort you're willing to give it.
