I have read about a dozen books on "finding" the will of God over a dozen years. I have struggled practicing the principles taught to me with all sincerity. And I could not find a book that explains God's will with clarity and without contradictions. One book I found close enough was Friesen's. But then I felt there were few things missing. This book I should say is the best I could find. Although it is written by two different authors as some reviews have noted, it is easy to read and the principles come out with clarity. I would strongly recommend this book.

This is a solid theological view of God's Will. It is not a 'feel good' type of writing but rather an in depth look at what is God's will as outlined in the Bible and then what do we do to follow what we know. I found it refreshing and challenging.

This is a nice, balanced, view of determining God's will for one's life using the Puritan tradition. The book starts with Psalm 23 and shows how God wants to guide us and protect us. The authors then present the problems with the current models in different evangelical camps and present the traditional and hopefully biblical model. The book seems a little dry and a little repetitive because they summarize their views so much before they proceed with the next step. However, the book is very readable and practical. They briefly refer to Friesen's book, "Decision Making and the Will of God." They show how his model could be improved. I'm not sure why I'm not giving it 5 stars. I could really tell that it is written by two authors: it is not seamless. The book did not give any brilliant insights, but rather the authors sought to calm the readers that God wants to provide direction through His Word and they shouldn't worry about missing His will, but rather seek it through biblical wisdom.

I like reading and love this book. It answers many questions that I have about what God has in store for me and my life. I would reccommend this book to anyone with that question.

When ever I see the words, God's Will, it gets my attention. This book is written with authority and accuracy from scripture. Mankind will never learn everything as God is training us for the next level.

Awesome reading.
Everyday people are faced with decisions--some big, some small. As Christians, we believe that we need to submit to God's Word in all things. Many people struggle with discerning God's will. Many more struggle with fear and or confusion about whether God guides them, how they will know when He does, and even moreso, on what happens when they make a mistake. God's Will Finding Guidance for Everyday Decisions by J.I. Packer and Carol Nystrom address these issues and more in their book.

God's Will is a biblical and practical exploration into what divine guidance is and will help the people of God to build upon a solid foundation for understanding how and why God guides His people. In God's Will the reader will discover the role of Scripture, discernment, wisdom, the counsel of others and the Holy Spirit help in discovering God's will.

The authors note that "during the past century and a half, the topic of guidance from God has become a focus of fear among many Christians" (10). One of the biggest reasons for this struggle is because of how people view God. Many Christians view God as some genie in the bottle that if they pray to Him He will answer all their prayers. Yes, God answers prayer, but He doesn't do it on our timetable. For example often times when I pray for patience, God sends me a trial to test my patience. When I pray for an open opportunity to share the Gospel, God doesn't give me an easy person to minister to but sends a difficult person. Rather than viewing Him as the Lord of Creation, many Christians instead worship the god of chance and luck.

God's Will was written to address the fear many believers have regarding knowing God's Will. Throughout the book, the authors guide Christians by grounding their arguments in helpful biblical and theological categories that will help Christians to understand what God's will is. After doing this they give a process whereby Christians can understand God's Will. At the heart of all the authors teach is the belief that "through Scripture, wisdom, and help from fellow believers, Christians are prompted and sustained by the Spirit" (232). The Holy Spirit joins with the Father to further the glory of the Good Shepherd. "The Holy Spirit exerts the full power of creation to achieve the fullness of new creation in every believer's life and to bring to each one a full perception of the guidanc of God (232).

God's Will is a very helpful book that will help new or mature Christians. Written by one of the greatest Christian minds of the past century, God's Will helps its readers to cut through the fog of what God's will is by addressing Christians' anxiety about guidance and decision making by taking them to the Word of God. The book not only does this with excellence, but it explains how the Holy Spirit is at work in their lives to help them to grow to be like Jesus.

This biblically faithful, theological robust and practical book will shepherd those who struggle with understanding God's will by pointing them to the Good Shepherd--the Lord Jesus Christ. Read God's Will: Finding Guidance for Everyday Decisions and learn from an experienced theologian on how and why God guides His people.
