Found: God's Will by John MacArthur Audio Book of the Week

Found: God's Will (Find the Direction and Purpose God Wants for Your Life)
Found:God's Will by John MacArthur

Narrated by John Hagg


You may want to jump and shout when you read the sixth principle for knowing when you have found God's will.

The sixth principle is "Do whatever you want" as long as the first five principles are operating in your life.

Read about all six principles to better understand what the psalmist means when he urges, "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart" (Psalm 37:4).

Dr. John MacArthur, Jr. is pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and president of The Master's College and Seminary. Known for his dynamic expository preaching. John is heard daily on the "Grace to You" syndicated radio broadcast and has a cassette ministry that has distributed more than ten million tapes. His many books include The Body Dynamic, Reckless Faith, The Vanishing Conscience, Different by Design, Anxiety Attacked, The Power of Suffering, and The MacArthur Study Bible.Reviews

My take:
I received a free download of this book from for purposes of reviewing it.  This was a really quick listen at just 1.42 hrs. (the book itself is only 64 pages long).  I think that this book would be perfect to give to a new Christian as it answers alot of the questions that people have when they become a Christian.  I think it is an excellent book for people who have been Christians for awhile also to just to help them to remember some of the basic fact that are presented in this book. 

The main thing I took away from Listening to this book other than the 6 principles presented was the way that MacArthur does his Bible reading.  He takes a portion of Scripture and reads that same portion for 30 days.  By the time he is finished he really knows that Scripture.  Bible reading is an important part of the Christian life and this is a good way to incorporate into yours. 

I thought that John Hagg did a good job as the narrator.  His voice was pleasant and he kept a good pace and didn't rush.  No gimmicks here just a straight forward reading which was appropriate for this book. 


  1. I have never listened to an audio book. I think my mind would wander too much to keep up with the story.

  2. Some books are better in traditional book form but I really enjoy listening to books during times when I feel I was wasting my time before like my commute to work. I love audiobooks. Since I have been listening to them the amount of books I get to enjoy has increased dramatically. I also have listened to books that I would havegiven up on if I had read them. I saw where you liked cozy mysteries. That wouldbe a good place for you to try audio with (except I wouldn't try any books that have recipes in them)
