Publisher Comments:

Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God's will don't work. It's time to try something new: give up.

Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through.

Too often, he writes, God's people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives. Or-even worse-they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting...waiting...waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

But God doesn't need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He's already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.

No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.

Synopsis:

A noted pastor and author offers Christians a liberating approach to finding God's will for their lives by counseling them to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through.

Witty and fluid writing makes this a pleasurable and quick read. DeYoung provides insightful analysis on the current generation compared to generations past while he describes theological implications from the Bible that prove relevant today. No gimmicks, no formulas. Just a much needed reminder that God has provided a wealth of wisdom in common sense, community and the Bible to help us make choices and commit. More importantly, it encourages us to take risks, confident of God's care for His children, come what may.
