Product Description

Being close to God means communicating with him--telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear?

The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this updated and expanded edition of Willard's beloved book, originally published as In Search of Guidance and now entitled Hearing God, you'll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom. Including new material from Dallas Willard's teaching at the Renovari Institute and reformatted to be even easier to read, this classic continues to endure as one of today's best resources for learning to listen closely to God.

Features:
  • Includes new material from Willard's teaching at the Renovari Institute
  • Provides insight into God's direction in daily life
  • Aids in learning to hear God's voice
  • Gives guidance for developing a richer relationship with God
  • Reformatted for easier reading

    This is probably the best, and more powerful, Christian book I have read in a while. It is a deep, thought-provoking, and meaningful read. Williard is thorough with his explanations and logically/biblically substantiates the ideas he puts forth in a sensible manner. It is well thought-out and intelligently written. And, with that foundation in place, it is a book that can challenge and support a much deeper and more meaningful relationship with the Lord that is rooted in conversation - both speaking to God and learning to listen to him through the ways (language) in which he communicates with us.

    I first started reading this book and must admit that the first 5 chapters, it seemed to be nice reading.

    However when I got to Chapter 6 page 158 it says "Spirit is unbodied, personal force. .....We can most clearly see spirit in our own selves, as the force that belongs to thought, emotion and intention" - Straight away I'm thinking that this sounds like Starwars where they say "May the force be with you" and also to my understanding that the Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity and God the Father and Jesus the Son are beings which should also make the Holy Spirit a spiritual being, not a force. If the Spirit is reckoned as a force then it should also be said that God the Father and Jesus the Son is also a force which they are not. The Trinity is treated as one being, 3 persons in one as God so I find this line to be a serious flaw in doctrine.

    Then I read on page 163 where it says "In all these cases, as God spoke the object concerned came into existence (whether in an instant or over a more or less extended period of time does not matter)..." If the author is saying that God spoke the object into existence then he has reason to believe that God created everything that exists but then in brackets he is saying whether this or that does not matter. Well actually it does matter...because he is saying he is not sure if God spoke the object into existence in an instant or if time was involved like evolution. But as we read on to page 164, it says "The events in the visible, material world - the unfolding of a rosebud, the germination of a seed, the conception and growth of a child, the evolution of galaxies...." it clearly shows that the author supports evolution over God speaking things into existence because he obviously doubts that God is the creator of things as mentioned in Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth...".

    I tried reading the rest of the book but everytime I think about the Spirit from the authors perspective, it is a "force" - which was troubling so I didn't finish reading the rest of the book.

    I am not part of any book review program or websites, this is my own personal review. Obviously it is your choice to buy the book yourself but as he is so well recommended by some other authors or theologists, I would be extra careful in following their lead.
