  • In the spiritual life, we need a central idea something so basic and comprehensive that it encompasses everything else According to Carmelite Father Wilfrid Stinissen, surrender to God, abandonment to the One who loves us completely, is that central reality The life of Jesus shows us the centrality of abandonment, for it is truly the beginning and the end of his missionIn the spiritual life, we need a central idea something so basic and comprehensive that it encompasses everything else According to Carmelite Father Wilfrid Stinissen, surrender to God, abandonment to the One who loves us completely, is that central reality The life of Jesus shows us the centrality of abandonment, for it is truly the beginning and the end of his mission on earth In this simple but profound book, Father Stinissen distinguishes three degrees or stages in abandonment The first stage consists of accepting and assenting to God s will as it manifests itself in all circumstances of life The second is actively doing God s will at every moment of one s life In the third stage, abandonment to God is so complete that one has become a tool in God s hands At this stage it is no longer I who do God s will, but God who accomplishes his will through me.

    One thought on “Into Your Hands, Father: Abandoning Ourselves to the God Who Loves Us

    1. Adam

      Short but excellent book on doing and accepting God's will in all aspects of our life. I found myself highlighting and bookmarking a lot of quotes and sections from the book. Some good insights about how everything that happens is God's will, whether it be his direct will or his permissive will. Some quotes from St. Augustine sum it up well, "Nothing happens that the Almighty does not will should happen, either by permitting it or by himself doing it" and "God is so good that in his hand, even e [...]

    2. Paul

      Main point of this book: the key principle of Christian living is surrender to God's will. This is a respectable thesis, and is basically the theme of the spiritual classic "Abandonment to Divine Providence" (De Caussade).I gave the book 3 stars not because I think it is a bad book. The author is Catholic and there is nothing that struck me as contrary to the Faith. Rather, I simply found the book's approach not to be particularly helpful for me. But I know at least one very wise and holy priest [...]

      The beauty of this book is not in the fact that it is profound or gives amazing advice about abandonment to God, although it does. What is most beautiful is it's simplicity. It reveals to you things that you then realize that you already knew, deep inside. But, as soon as you are done, there is a longing to turn back to the first page and read it again.I think this is going to be a great book to keep coming back to, especially at different times during the ebb and flow of our life of faith. The [...]

    4. James Andersen

      Do not be taken back by the small size of this book, although small the quality of the reading is high. In fact I will probably need to read this over again just to be sure I have grasped certain concepts. This book shows 3 Stages in Surrendering to God: Accepting, Following, and Becoming; with each section given sufficient treatment on the matter. I thought this book was so good that I actually bought it for a friend as well who was interested in learning more about the Concept of Surrendering [...]

    5. April

      I wasn't overly impressed by the book, but it might have been because life is too distracting right now. I felt like he was too emphatic like 'you must do this or else' as if there is only one way to heaven, and one way to submit oneself to God. It seems to me that He brings each of us to that point in our lives in the way that best suits us as individuals, and the book seemed a little too canned for me. That being said, there is some advice in the book that I thought was really good, and there [...]

    6. Anne Marie Gazzolo

      I actually didn't read this as Kindle but don't know how to change it to the right edition! But it's a great book that can be easily read in an afternoon. It's easy to understand and well written. Being The Lord of the Rings nut that I am, this book really resonated with me as it addresses the same themes such as following God's will, how God allows evil to bring good, etc etc that are central to Tolkien's masterpiece and could be read as a companion to it, though it was not written as so. Well [...]

    7. Christina

      Such a fabulous book! So much knowledge and learning and content on such a few pages! I've read a few books on the topic by now (one of the latest being the fantastic 'Finding God's Will For You' by St. Francis de Sales)and this is doubtlessly the one which is the easiest to access. Yet, for all the easiness with which you can read it, it's probably also the one, which you will pick up most often, to re-read and re-memorize certain parts.

    8. Mike Richard

      I was given this book at a silent retreat by Fr. Luke. This book is indispensable for a person who wants to move toward holiness. It takes one through the lifelong steps one must take to become an instrument of God's will. Truly a life-changing book.

    9. Jonathan Bock

      Surrender!Looking to let go and let God? Read this beautiful explanation of what true surrender is and be transformed forever!

    10. Deaustinbe

      A life changing book, one that I will read over and over.sweet surrender to the God who loves us simple and as difficult as that.

    11. Michael Barsness

      One of the best short spiritual readsI am so blessed by Fr. Stinison's book as he ties Caussade's, Abandonment to Divine Providence well into the tradition of the Church.

    12. Matthew Villella

      There is a common Christian expression, "Let go and let God." How? That is always much easier said than done. This book is the manual for how to do that!

    13. Sheila

      This book is definitely worth a reread! There are a lot of profound examples and insights throughout it. My spiritual director recommended this book, and I would recommend it to others.

    14. Kevin Wojciechowski

      So good. This little 108 page book kicked my butt and was rich with thought-provoking truths most of us have never even considered. Read at your own risk: you will be challenged.

    15. Cathy

      This is a wonderful book that will help those seeking help with issues that overwhelm. Sound spiritual advice from a master!
