Daniel Kolenda (Passio)
No quest is more important than the existential journey to discover life’s purpose. It’s why best-selling books such as Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life resonate so strongly with a broad spectrum of people; these works attest to an innate longing for a deeper meaning.
Now, Daniel Kolenda, an evangelist and president of Christ for All Nations, helps readers discover God’s will for their individual lives.
Though Kolenda discusses God’s standard will for all Christians, he gives in-depth teaching to help readers discover God’s unique will for each of us.
Kolenda notes in his introduction, “Your role is to advance a cause greater than yourself.” Yet throughout the book, he assures readers that seeking God’s will is not a self-centered act, but one that is intended to further God’s eternal purposes—through our impacting others.
Using various Bible stories, Kolenda tackles the most poignant questions about finding God’s will, including: How do I discover God’s will? What are the enemies of God’s will? And, of course: How do I understand God’s will for my life?
Kolenda wisely integrates scriptural examples throughout his work, covering Bible patriarchs such as David and Moses as well as the nation of Israel. He uses their pursuit in finding God’s will to illustrate that difficulties are to be expected.
Overall, readers will appreciate the wisdom that Kolenda dispenses in addition to his solid foundation in Scripture. He succeeds in clearing up confusion and dispelling myths about a topic often shrouded in confusion. As a result, readers will be inspired to persist along the path of knowing their calling—whether that involves a career change or simply a transformation of the heart.
