As we begin our new series, What Does Your Soul Long to Do?, I am posting a second resource list. This one is on discernment. I have really enjoyed revisiting some of these books in the last few weeks and appreciate all who recommended books to add to the list. They are recommended by a diverse group of people and are from very diverse perspectives which I always think enriches and strengthens our faith. Some are about discernment for individuals, others about discernment in groups. If there are other suggestions of “must have” books on discernment there is still time to contribute. Just leave your suggestions in the comments.
