Am not sure who wrote which chapters, but the style of many important chapters in this book clearly resembles that of packer. In fact, the whole book is aligned to the direction set for us in his Knowing God.

The end of all christian knowledge while we are still on this earth will eventually lead to this question: Given all these knowledge, how do we make the right decisions in life?

As in real life.

Packer (shall use only one name though he is the co-author) fir

Do not let the prologue and first chapter stop you, this is an excellent book on discerning God's will. Few Christian books employ Scripture as well as Packer and Nystrom do here. Citing many of the abuses and problems in discerning God's will, the authors lay out a methodical strategy anyone could follow. My favorite chapters were the last two, so read on and get wisdom.

Much easier read than the typical Packer book because of Carolyn Nystrom's contribution I'm sure. This book really does offer a host of direction on how to be led by God in our lives. Mr. Packer gently nudges the believer into God's path in ways that only he can. I plan to re-read this book again in the coming years as this topic is always relevant.

"Many books take up the subject of God's guidance, some of them offering a wide range of excellent insights, but few speak to the prerequisite of spiritual health: that guidance from God is only to be expected when spiritually you are in good shape."

Dr. Packer, the Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology at Regent College, was hailed by TIME as “a doctrinal Solomon” among Protestants. “Mediating debates on everything from a particular Bible translation to the acceptabi
