PARKER, Colo. – Kirk Youngblood’s new book “Free to Be Wise: A Guide to Biblical Decision Making” (published by CrossBooks) is designed to help people make decisions from a biblical perspective by discussing 13 faulty ways of discerning God’s will and pointing toward the way of wisdom.

“For years as a pastor I have seen people struggle with how to make decisions in a biblical manner,” says Youngblood. “This book is intended to free people up to employ biblical wisdom to everyday life situations instead of being held captive by the notion that God will speak to them directly apart from Scripture.”

About the Book
“Free to be Wise” grew out of Youngblood’s doctoral study. As part of his research, he consulted more than 60 books, incorporating the ideas within each that he found valuable into the work that would become this book. Youngblood provides, throughout the text, footnotes so that interested readers can go back to his original sources for more information.

“There are a number of ways Christians pursue faulty subjectivism,” Youngblood observes. “Some are reading circumstances. Some are plopping open the Bible. Some are depending on inner impressions.” That varied reaction to seeking God’s will is what led Youngblood to pen “Free to be Wise.”
