Desiring God’s Will

This book completes the trilogy on Christian spirituality that started with Surrender to Love and also includes The Gift of Being Yourself.  Authors never get the final say on their titles, although almost always the title I submit ends up being the one used.  This book was an exception. I had entitled the book “Will and Desire,” because it is about the weakness of will power in contrast to the strength of desire.  But, the publisher wanted something with God’s Will in the title and they won that argument.  I don’t think of it as a book about God’s will; in my view it’s about the alignment of our hearts and desires with the heart of God.  But, noting that this is the book’s subtitle you get a little peak into the sorts of negotiations and compromises that go into book making!
