Challenging and practical, but not the whole story,

This review is from: Just Do Something: How to Make a Decision Without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, (Paperback)
This is a great little book, easy to understand and written with humour and applicable teaching. It's challenging and practical, but it is essentially geared to resolving one problem Christians sometimes face when it comes to guidance and God's will: that of being so preoccupied with guidance, or so uncertain about what God's will is, that they end up doing nothing, living in fear of making wrong decisions or spending a long time being stuck in an unproductive way of life.
So when it comes to getting people unstuck from an over-cautious approach to their decision-making, it's excellent. It's also a good book for Christians who aren't particularly taken with charismatic Christianity, but need encouragement to be led by what's in their (redeemed, sanctified) heart. However, there is a lot more to guidance and hearing the voice of God, which is available to us through the Holy Spirit, springs from close fellowship with God, and which unlocks the use of a believer's gifts, callings and spiritual gifts such as healings and words of knowledge. If you want to know more about that, you'll do well to read other books as well as this one ("The Hot Line" by Peter Lawrence is excellent).
We all have to start somehow, somewhere, in fulfilling God's plans and this book will certainly help you get going. At a later stage, one can perhaps add to one's understanding and broaden one's experience.
