Decisions Decisions: How (and How Not) to Make Them by Dave Swavely



About: Decisions Decisions.

How can I know what God wants me to do?

Life is made up of more decisions than we can count. We face so many choices every day that often lead us to anxiety or desperation. Many people stumble this way and that because they do not ground their decisions in God's Word.

In this brief yet relentlessly biblical book, Dave Swavely first shows us how not to make decisions and then reveals what biblical decisions making is.


“Biblical, thoughtful, captivating, and well written. I heartily endorse it as a valuable instrument for your spiritual maturity and discipleship ministry to others.”

—Harry L. Reeder III

“A helpful book that will keep many from going astray. It will fortify those who wish to preserve the integrity of biblical revelation over against others who falsely lay claim to additional revelation. Get it, enjoy it, believe it!”

—Jay Adams

“A provocative treatment of a most difficult subject. As a pastor, I have searched for a book on decision making that is biblically precise, yet practically insightful; I now have one.”

—Lance Quinn
