If you want a paper copy, it is $2.50 right now. You can also get them for your logos program here. There are 50 questions he covers for free. R.C. is understandable and rooted in history. I would have liked to have read more of his perspective, but it is a fine book for what it covers.

  2. The Meaning of Man's Will 
  3. God's Will and Your Job
  4. God's Will in Marriage


"If prostitution is the world's oldest profession, surely fortune-telling is the second oldest. 'Tell me of tomorrow' is the pleas of the stock market speculator, the competitive businessman, the sports forecaster, the young couple in love." p. 2
"Having been a Christian for some fifty years, with the study of theology my main vocational pursuit, I find the practical question of the will of God pressing on my mind quite frequently. I doubt a fortnight passes that I am not seriously engaged by the question of whether I am doing what God wants me to do at this point in my life. The question haunts and beckons all of us. it demands resolution and so we must ask ourselves. 'How do we know the will of God for our lives.'" p. 29
"The signing of a piece of paper is not a matter of affixing one's signature in ink to a meaningless document. The signing of a marriage certificate is an integral part of what the Bible calls a covenant. A covenant is made publically before witnesses and with formal legal commitments that are taken seriously by the community. The protection of both partners is at stake, there is legal recourse should one of the partners act in a way that is destructive to the other." p. 89
