The authors of Tuning In to God’s Call, newly published by Liguori Publications, point out that God wants us to not merely survive in our life choices, but to flourish. Authors Father Andrew Carl Wisdom and Sister Christine Kiley draw from their experiences with real life discerners to offer a book ofreflections and activities that provide direction and inspire greater peace during the process of discerning a life choice. They first describe the Church’s invitation to make a generous gift of self to God through married life, an intentional single life, priesthood, or religious life.
The reflections often challenge the reader’s perspective. They are arranged by the common stages of discernment journeys and are designed to help the reader move from creating and cultivating a vocational interest to a decision to follow or abandon that interest. Accompanying each reflective story are a prayer and a practical action that enable insight to develop.
While the book is primarily for young adults between the ages of 18 and 35, the authors point out that the content is also helpful for anyone who wants to live a thoughtful, examined life or is discerning a life-changing decision. For all who wonder what life holds for them, Tuning In to God’s Call will help them pray about and actively move through the discernment process in peace as they seek God’s design for their lives.
