Decision Making and the Will of God: A Biblical Alternative to the Traditional Viewby PH.D. Th.M. Garry Friesen
Synopses & Reviews
Does God Have a Perfect Will for Your Life?
Does God have a perfect will for each Christian? Can you be absolutely certain of God’s specific will for your life? In this expanded twenty-fifth anniversary edition of his highly acclaimed work, Garry Friesen examines the prevalent view on God’s will today and provides a sound biblical alternative to the traditional teaching of how God guides us. This new edition includes these helpful resources:
• Study guide for small groups
• Responses to Frequently Asked Questions
• Guide to painless Scripture memorization
Friesen tackles the very practical issues of choosing a mate, picking a career, and giving in this fresh and liberating approach to decision making and the will of God.
Story Behind the Book
Most Christians have been taught how to find God’s will, yet many are still unsure whether they’ve found it. God does guide His people, but the question is, “How does He guide?” After “putting out a fleece” to decide which college to attend, Garry Friesen began pondering why it was so hard to find God’s will when he had so sincerely sought it. Was he the only one who did not have 100 percent clarity for every decision? Then a new possibility struck—perhaps his understanding of the nature of God’s will was biblically deficient. Maybe there was a better way to understand HOW God guides.
Does God have a perfect will for each Christian? Does it matter? Can you be absolutely sure of God's individual will for your life? In an easy-to-follow narrative style, Garry Friesen examines theprevalent views on God's will today, then rejects them to propose a different view that he believes more accurately reflects biblical teaching. This rerelease of Decision Making takes up the practical issues ofchoosing a mate, picking a career, giving of one's resources, and areas of disagreement between Christians to give readers a new approach to knowing the will of God.
