Overview

The process of discerning God's will is one of the most important Christian practices for any contemporary disciple, and it is ongoing and ever-changing. In Saying Yes, Albert Haase, OFM, scholar of Christian spirituality and spiritual mentor to hundreds of people, emphasizes the importance of listening to your life in discerning God's will--your ordinary life is a megaphone through which God talks to you and the world. This book offers:
  • ten attitudes for discernment
  • techniques for living a discerning and reflective lifestyle
  • ways you might be sabotaging the grace of God in your life
  • the designs of the devil, something no other book on discernment addresses
  • how to know if a person is wrestling with God
  • Saying Yes is a timeless, practical handbook for knowing God's will. It's filled with real life examples, reflection questions, and prayers for discernment from historic spiritual figures. A DVD with six 30-minute presentations (sold separately) completes the package for an excellent 6-week adult faith formation study group.

    Albert Haase, OFM, offers clear, practical spiritual advice in every book. Saying Yes is concise and written without jargon or technical language; it offers real life examples and reflection questions, making the process of discernment accessible.
