The phrase "the will of God" is used loosely. The consequence of that looseness to our peace of mind is serious. The author's recognition of this problem led him to write this book, a classic that has helped more than a million grieving persons better understand the meaning of the phrase. It can help you as well.
During the tumultuous era of World War II, the city of London shattered under unrelenting bombs dropped by Nazi Germany. Millions of buildings were destroyed or damaged, tens of thousands of civilians were killed, and survivors were left to ask: How can this destruction be part of Gods plan? What is Gods will in all of this?
After City Temple in London was reduced to rubble, Rev. Leslie Weatherhead crafted five sermons on understanding the will of God to help his congregation endure religious doubt as their cityand churchcrumbled around them. Weatherheads sermons were eventually published as The Will of God, a resource that has sold more than a million copies and has been a lifeline for grieving persons seeking to understand Gods purpose for their pain. This revised edition of the classic book includes background information and photos of the historical setting that inspired this book, and a new cover and layout to refresh a timeless messageboth for new readers and returning fans.
