Publisher's Summary

Here is practical help for understanding and following God’s will for your life.

“God has a plan for our lives,” but what does that mean in practical terms? How do we know God’s will for important life decisions, like who to marry, what job to take, what church to join? How can we be free if God has a perfect plan for us? Does suffering mean we are off track? How exactly does God speak?

Author Jerry Sittser explores these questions and offers a biblically based approach that is truly liberating. No matter what decisions we’ve already made, he points out that it is still possible to live out God’s perfect will—even if we think we’ve married the wrong person, chosen the wrong career, or landed in some kind of serious trouble.

    I am a Christian wife and mother. I write two blogs. My somewhat theological blog is called "Just Another Clay Pot," and my Fiction/Poetry blog is called "Weightiness and Whimsy."

    "Wonderful book, horribly narrated"

    Buy the book. It's wonderful! But do not buy the audiobook.

    I hate to be so negative, but when an excellent book on the subject of grief is narrated by someone with what can only be described as "Low-Budget Informercial Voice," it's tragic.

    Just imagine: You're listening to a narrative of personal devastation, and of the deep theological insights that came from grief, but it's presented in a "But wait...there's more" vocal style.

    When the author summarized his family's tragedy (his wife, mother, and 4-year-old daughter were killed in an accident, with Sittser and his other children also in the vehicle), the narrator almost seemed to insult the author's grief just by reading it as if it were one of those incredibly irritating, "Oh, no, the cling wrap won't stick! Introducing new Super-Cling!" commercials.

    But the book itself is wonderfully insightful and hope-giving. Read it, but don't let it be ruined by listening to this narration.

    "Wonderful book narrated by the wrong voice"
    If you could sum up The Will of God as a Way of Life in three words, what would they be?

    Encouraging, illuminating, thought-provoking


    What didn’t you like about Don Reed’s performance?

    His narration is dramatic and overly stylized for this spare, direct book. I found it distracting and inappropriate. He has what is perhaps a classic narrating voice. It sounds like a movie preview or advertisement. I would not choose a book narrated by him in the future.


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of my opinion of the narration, I enjoyed this book and am very grateful for it. It's one I will probably read (rather than listen to) again and again.
