Discerning one's future can mean that we wrestle with God. We want to know where God is leading and what choices we should make to get there. Sometimes these matches last minutes and sometimes years.

But discernment can be a difficult process, one that calls for guides and exemplars. This richly illustrated book, complete with reflection questions, takes you into the biblical stories of eight persons who struggled with God. Each was changed, blessed, and moved forward with hope. Each found God's preferred future. You can too
