Item Description...
Overview
Sometimes the gift of free will does not seem like God has done us a favor. God has given us free will, but what is God's will in our lives? To seek God's will, we must get to know God. This book helps us to explore the will of God not as an end in itself, but as the path to freedom; not the freedom of autonomy, but the freedom of love. The author takes the reader on a lovely journey through ten evenings with God and examines prayer as a relationship with God, the importance of solitude for listening to God, and the use of the senses in discerning God's presence in our lives. Each of the ten chapters deals with a different way to see God's will, including understanding that God's love is the foundation for His will. Each chapter ends with guiding questions designed to help readers reflect upon their relationship with God. Everyone must make hard choices in life, and sometimes it is difficult to understand God's will when making life-changing decisions. This book reinforces the simple fact that God is love and out of this love flows all of life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Vendor Recognition  Mar 23, 2010
I have rated the product at the highest level but it's really for the vendor. The produce was badly damaged via U.S. Mail; however, the response from the vendor was outstanding! Many thanks.
 
book review  Feb 9, 2009
This is one of many books I have purchased from my friend, teacher, and mentor Sr. Ilia Delio. I am currently using this book with a faith sharing group that meets in my house. Each chapter is packed with beautifully written reflections on how to more deeply connect with God and discern his will for you. Although there aren't many questions at the end of each chapter we find we are able to create our own questions and its been the basis for some thought provoking discussions. I highly recommend it.
 
Life Changes  Sep 3, 2008
Few books are able to guide a person through those difficult passages along the journey of life. How can any book give us the answers to which path to choose? Sr. Ilia Delio does not have answers, but her spiritual direction to help us discern how our lives can be lived in the fullness of God's will comes across in this book. Just about everyone I've ever counseled wants to know (especially young people), How do I know this is I'm called to do with me life? In 10 evenings, the paths open up and the choices become more visible.

For some of us, 10 evenings may stretch into 10 weeks. The depth of the insights Ilia Delio shares stretch beyond the pop culture of the Dr. Phils skimming the service with the "how's that workin' for ya?" question. I recommend this book for those looking for a fuller life, a life that opens you up to knowing the abundance of life God has created you to live in this world.
 
A Refreshing Look at Spirituality  Aug 21, 2008
Having read nearly all of her published work to date (including most of the peer-reviewed articles), I am happy to say that this little book is a nice volume of wisdom-filled nuggets that readers will enjoy and find useful. Each of the ten chapters contains at least one, if not many, insightful reflections that the reader can reflect on. Take for example this excerpt from the fifth chapter titled, "Sifting Out God's Love:"

"The problem with desire in today's world is twofold: Desires tend to be superficial and demand immediate satisfaction. Most of us do not know our deepest desires or mistake unfulfilled wants for deeper longings. Unfulfilled wants lead to unbridled wants, and we find ourselves yearning after things we don't really want or need" (62).

Reflections like this above prove this book worthwhile and helpful. The one, minor note of qualification I propose is an opinion that was recently shared with me by a prominent scholar in the field of historical theology, with whom I concur; for those unfamiliar with Sr. Delio's style of popular writing, the text can be difficult to follow. Her insights flow with speed and often appear tangential. Once you get a feel for the pace, you are able to benefit from the edifying information and reflections shared in this book.
