Product Description

Surprised by the Voice of God takes you to the Bible to discover the variety of creative, deeply personal ways God still communicates with us today. You'll learn how God speaks with people apart from the Bible, though never in contradiction to it.

Jack Deere first describes the ways God revealed his thoughts to first-century Christians. Then he tells why God continues to speak to us using the same methods. Finally Deere tells how to accurately hear God speak through prophecies, dreams, visions, and other forms of divine communication.

With candor, sensitivity, and a profound understanding of Scripture, Deere identifies our hindrances to hearing the Holy Spirit and calls us beyond them to a more intimate relationship with God. Filled with fascinating stories and personal accounts, Surprised by the Voice of God is for all who want to walk in the dynamic full scope of Christianity.

    This is an interesting and helpful book on an important topic. I did not find it to be quite as profound as "Surprised by the Power of the Spirit," but it was nonetheless well written.

    I throughly enjoyed this book, and would recommend it. I felt that Jack did a great job of backing up his case, and freeing us to accept the gifts of Holy Spirit as given us by God, for his glory. It is evident that Jack, cares a great deal for the Lord, and this book helped me see God in a more relationship oriented manner.Good guidelines for the practice of the use of the Gifts, and how to make sure they are used in accordance with the will of God.Only bad part is that I feel that Jack defended himself against personal attacks in this book, by a particular individual. I felt that shouldn't have been included in the book by the editor.Overall this is a great book, that will either help bring new understanding into the gifts of the spirit.

    I am only partially through it but gave it full star rating because the very subject matter exposes the missing link to a full walk with God today: signs, wonders, supernatural power of God. I experienced this in the first 10 yrs of my Christianity when I only listened to God's Voice and not let myself become distracted by the world...now 15 yrs later, I am hungering for All again!

    Jack Deere, author of "Surprised by the Voice of God" knows God. I know this because Deere's words are the words I would use if I could write a book; his knowledge of God is my knowledge of God. Are you forever seeking the next "thing" or "rush" to fulfill you? That emptiness man has sought to fill with the things of the earth can only be filled by God's Holy Spirit. As Deere says, you CAN have a relationship with God, you CAN hear the voice of God. God DESIRES your friendship. His desire for you to know Him is so great He did the unthinkable and sent His SON to die for one reason---YOU! God wants to call YOU "friend". Ten years ago I realized my soul was starved. I had reached a place of great hunger to know THE One who calls to us from our darkness and to come into the light of the Kingdom of His Son Jesus. I purposed in my heart that I would come to know God through the diligent reading of His Word and seeking Him in prayer. And one day the words of Colossians came alive and I heard the clear audible voice of God tell me to comfort another. Yes the audible voice of God.Last night as I approached the last pages of Jack Deere's book, "Surprised by the Voice of God," I wept in the presence of the Holy Spirit who testified here was a man who knows the God of all creation, a man who has been enabled only by the indwelling Holy Spirit to put into words who God is and what God requires in and from us to enable us to dwell in the inner chamber--that place of His presence abiding in us and us in Him. But mostly my tears were thanksgiving and supplication to God, asking Him to bring friends and family to that place. I pray you come to know Him and if you choose to read Jack Deere's book, "Surprised by the Voice of God," that the words God gave Him to write the book pierce your heart, soul, and mind to seek God with your entire being and might through His Word and ever seeking Holy Spirit. And that one day you hear God's voice call you "My friend."

    This is a follow up book to Deere's book "Suprised by the Power of the Spirit." This book, although well written, is not quite as good as his first. Deere does a good job of giving detailed advice about hearing the voice of God by dreams, prophecy, etc. but Deere does fail to truly deal with Scripture with his point of "loving the Bible too much." I find that the duty to prove that God still speaks fresh revelation is not upon those who believe in the complete canon of Scripture but rather those, like Deere, who desire to move beyond what is already stated.
