Product Description

For many, trying to discover "God's will" is a confusing and frustrating process. In an effort to divine God's will, people try praying harder, meditating more on Scripture, or briefly living a better life. But as this insightful book shows, such activities have more in common with paganism than with biblical Christianity.

Exploring a misunderstood area of Christian concern, Waltke asks, "Can we ever know God's will?" In pursuit of a satisfying answer, he examines many practices that Christians pass off as divine guidance---following hunches, casting lots, looking for signs, and others---and suggests that such practices actually bear an unsettling resemblance to the ways pagans seek divine guidance. Waltke shows that the truest course to God's will is found in faithfully answering the call to walk close to the Lord and be conformed to his likeness. Only then will we have the heart of God and know what pleases him.
