Step by Step: Divine Guidance for Ordinary Christians



About: Step by Step.

How can I know God's will for my life? Sifting through confusion about divine guidance, promptings, "fleece," and inner voices, Petty clearly illustrates how to make biblically wise decisions.


"Step by Step is a fresh, up-to-date, biblical, edifying, and well-written approach to the old but important Christian question: How can I know the will of God for my life? . . . I commend this wise and balanced book to everyone."

—James M. Boice

". . . an antidote for much that is masquerading as an answer to this question. . . . biblically focused . . . brings theology to life in a wonderfully practical and unambiguous way."

—Richard C. Chewning

". . . a fine book on the wise and God-honoring way to make decisions."

—J. I. Packer

". . . avoids the mistake of making biblical guidance look merely academic . . . many specific examples of how God leads us through perplexing situations."

—John M. Frame
