Summary

Every Christian has a mission. What's yours?

"Is it time to change jobs?"

"Should I marry?"

"Am I called to religious life?"

Sooner or later, every thoughtful Christian asks such questions. For everyone ready to make the shift from "what do I want for my life?" to "what does God want for my life?", Fr. Gallagher offers this new book to help you make sense of your major life decisions.

Drawing from the timeless methods of Ignatius Loyola and richly illustrated with examples and stories, this book offers practical wisdom for aligning your will to God's will. Fr. Gallagher takes you through each step of the process, including opening your heart to whatever God wants; making use of silence, the Eucharist, scripture, and spiritual direction; and finding clarity (and what to do when you lack clarity).

While this book focuses on the major decisions such as marriage and career and vocation choices, the insights gained here can be adapted to other significant life decisions as well. Fr. Gallagher's clear style makes this book an important resource for all who want to discover where God is leading them, as well as for spiritual directors, retreat directors, and counselors

book execellent reader okay

Book is excellent. Reading was good but could be better. Usually professional readers can read without letting the listener hear each intake of breath. hearing the reader breath can be distracting.

If you like listing to endnotes.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No.

What did you like best about this story?

The content.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Reading endnotes.

Do you think Discerning the Will of God needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

In print yes. But listing to this as an audible book didn't work.

Any additional comments?

When I read a book I usually skip the endnotes. It just doesn’t flow for me when I do. The reader didn’t do it in this book. There are so many cited sentences and paragraphs in this book and it seems like most of the listen was endnotes. I heard note, notes, pages, dates, numbers, eb and more. This is a book that it is better to read than listen to.
