Authenticity: A Biblical Theology of Discernment
"This book explores the divine strategy in detail. Research discovers in Scripture 40 or 50 themes that bear on discovering truth and recognizing that truth is well-founded. We learn how we discern whether we are being led by the Holy Spirit or by our own unredeemed inclinations and desires, whether it is the spirit of God or the prince of darkness that is operating in our disagreements and programs. We find in these themes clear responses to key questions: Why are there divisions and factions in the Church? How are these divisions to be healed? What are the sure signs that some people have truth, while others are in error? What are the conditions for finding and maintaining a shared vision in marriage, parishes, dioceses, religious orders, the universal Church?"
