Inter-Varsity Press Desiring God's Will: Aligning Our Hearts with the Heart of God

How might we discipline our wills so that we become both willing and able to do what God asks of us? In this book psychologist and spiritual director David Benner explores the transformation of the will in Christian spirituality. He examines why our desires are disordered and how our human volition can be brought into alignment with God's intentions so that we willingly choose that which god wants for us. in so doing, Benner shows us that cultivating discernment and being attuned to God's desires is the path of true life, spiritual health and freedom. God wants to change our choosing, not just our choices. By aligning our hearts with God's, we will find liberation from the kingdom of self and instead experience the joy of the kingdom of God.

This is the third book in a series of 3. What the author explains really well in this book is that our efforts, or our will driven actions are not the means by which we become more like Jesus. It is only as we surrender our will and ourselves (surrendering ourselves is more of the focus of his first book Surrender to Love), that we can be actual Spirit directed Christians. Those of us who are strong willed and highly disciplined only "look" spiritual. To be truely Spirit directed, we have to draw from God's well, rather than our own. It's a must read.
