MEDIA REVIEWS
"Albert Haase OFM reminds us that each of us is called to speak an ever deepening yes to God with our lives. The text centers around the most basic questions of the spiritual life: what are we living for, what keeps us from being fully alive? Haase offers a faithful and faith-filled reflection on both the simplicity and the complexity of Christian discernment and discipleship." -Most Reverend Donald Bolen, Bishop of Saskatoon

"SAYING YES `scratches where we itch.' Albert Haase, OFM has provided a blueprint and road map for discovering all the places, all the spaces and all the faces through which God speaks to us. Down-to-earth spirituality at its best!"
Most Reverend Fernand J. Cheri, III, OFM, Auxiliary Bishop of New Orleans
Discerning God's will is a complex task. Father Haase writes concise, practical advice for daily spiritual guidance and the development of an ongoing relationship with God. -U.S. Catholic, April 2016
There are a number of books about spiritual discernment, evidenced by the shelf-full of books I own on discovering and discerning the will of God in times of choice. What sets Albert Haase's Saying Yes apart from some of these, is his desire to set discernment within a larger frame than that decision-making-angst we feel when we are at a major crossroad. According to Haase, this book "highlights in a singular way that authentic Christian discernment requires daily listening to the megaphone God uses to communicate with us: the nitty-gritty of everyday life" (ix). This short book designed to help all Christian's pursue God's dream for their life.

This is a really useful guide to discernment, one that is helpful to me now, but could also have imparted insight to me at different stages of my faith journey. This may be a good gift for graduation for those facing major life transitions. But the focus on daily life makes it apt for everyone.

One of the things I really appreciate about Haase is the ways in which he calls us to attend to the circumstances of our life, `with an ear to the ground not the clouds' (18). He expects God to reveal his dream for us, not as divine directive from on high but in a much more organic way. This means that there is no one-size-fits all approach to discernment but each person's history, experience, shape and desires causes them to intersect God's kingdom dream in unique ways.-James Matichuk, Thoughts, Prayers & Songs


"Saying Yes" is concise and written without jargon or technical language. Replete with real life examples and reflection questions, making the process of discernment accessible, "Saying Yes" is very highly recommended to all members of the Christian community. Also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99), it should be noted that "Saying Yes" has an accompany DVD with six 30-minute presentations (sold separately) that completes the package for an excellent 6-week adult faith formation study group.-Helen Dumont, Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
