This little book ---- only 85 pages --- offers a simple but powerful way to reconcile genuine faith with thoughtful intelligence. Since it is our response to the circumstances of life, rather than the circumstances themselves, that determine whether or not these are "days of waste," Reverend Weatherhead's paradigm for understanding the relationship between God's will and man's will is a valuable tool to help us improve the quality of that response in the face of everything from the catastrophic to the most mundane of circumstances.
The five chapters of The Will of God were originally five sermons written and delivered by Reverend Weatherhead, but it is not necessary to be a Christian to benefit from the wisdom here. In fact, there is nothing evangelical about the book. It is a lesson in practical spirituality, applicable to us all, and it will be as relevant in another sixty years as it is today.
I suggest buying several copies at once to save on shipping --- you will want to share this one.
To underststand the will of God, try this.
Dr. Weatherhead explains with blinding clarity just what is meant by the Will
of God, a subject that has been more twisted, bent and badly used from the
pulpit than nearly any other I can think of, and I am a pastor. Far too
many believing Christians think that God sits at a giant computer screen and
is responsible for every single last bad thing that happens to us from
hurricanes to hangnails to house fires, from poison ivy to rain on the
Sunday School picnic. You can read this book in under an hour, then be
set free for the rest of your life. If you know someone struggling with
something bad that has happened, give them this book . . . and rejoice!
