BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: God’s Voice Within: The Ignatian Way to Discover God’s Will by Fr Mark E. Thibodeaux

What if we could understand the times we are walking towards God and the times we are walking away from God?  What if we could figure out God’s will for our lives?  Well, in the 16th century St Ignatius of Loyola believed that God wants to be part of guiding us in our day to day life.  So he set down on paper how He believes we can prepare ourselves and be open to God’s guidance.  Fortunately, Father Mark E. Thibodeaux took Ignatius’ writings and explained them in a way that  a 21 century mother of two can understand in this book God’s Voice Within: The Ignatian Way to Discover God’s Will.

There are two things I really like about this book.  The first is that it is written completely in the belief that we can live a life being guided each day by Christ.  The pull of the hectic world I live in too often distracts me from looking for God’s will each day.  But this book really lays out not just how to discern the voice of God but also the voices that are not God.  That leads me to the second thing I really like which is the clear and simplistic style which Thibodeaux explains difficult concepts.  He uses layman language, great examples and lots of list so that the reader can easily follow these teachings.

Let this book remind you of things you forgot about God and teach you things you didn’t know you needed to know.  Here’s an excerpt from the book.  CLICK HERE.
