Endorsements

“Besides its straightforwardness, clarity, and grounding in Scripture, what I like most about this book is its practicality. By following its counsel and being led by the Holy Spirit, Christians will be well equipped to discern and commit to God’s will for their lives!”
Gregg R. Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Sojourners and Strangers; Roman Catholic Theology and Practice; and Historical Theology

“In my forty-five years of pastoral ministry, there is one question that I’ve been asked more than any other: How might I know God’s will? That is why I’m so happy to recommend Grudem’s short treatment of this topic. His analysis is not only thoroughly biblical but also incredibly practical and easy to grasp. So whether you are a seasoned believer or a young Christian, were you to ask me that all-too-familiar question, I would send you to this book. I highly recommend it!”
Sam Storms, Senior Pastor, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

“I wholeheartedly recommend Wayne Grudem’s book. These principles have guided my own decisions, and I’m thrilled to know they are in a book I can give to others.”
Jason Fritz, Lead and Founding Pastor, Illuminate Community Church, Scottsdale, Arizona
