Though this book was written by a priest the spiritual concepts and discernment are applicable to any Judeo-Christian based faith. I have given this book to Jewish as well as Catholic friends.

I Love this Book!
Decisions great and small started becoming grueling ordeals in my life, to the consternation of my friends, family, and hubby. It seemed I wanted God to be more of a factor in my decision-making processes, but wasn't sure how to do this beyond just praying repeatedly for wisdom. However, this book breaks down the decision-making process from a faith-based perspective and offers the wisdom of the author's experienced observations (he used to do spiritual direction) on how God communicates to us His will in our decision making through our feelings, signs, circumstances, prayer, etc. I've xeroxed the workbook-type exercises in here too and regularly run all of my major life decisions through them. Overall, I feel much more ready to make decisions than I ever have.
