Product Description

In Hearing God in Conversation, Sam Williamson gives us good news: God is always speaking--we've just never been taught how to recognize his voice amid the clamor. Williamson shares the secrets of finding God's voice everywhere: in Scripture, of course, but also in the checkout line, on the job, in a movie theater, and even in silence. He delves into what it really means to pray without ceasing, how we can brainstorm with God, how to discern God's voice from the rest, and how to hear God's voice for others--without letting our own feelings get in the way.

    Should Christians be hearing from God today? Williamson's answer is a resounding, Yes. Hearing God is meant to be an ordinary experience for Christians. God saved us to have a conversational relationship with him. (16)

    Williamson writes about what he has learned and practiced. He doesn't write about visions and dreams but rather hearing God in ordinary life. He emphasizes that we must first be able to recognize God's voice and that means being in Scripture. We are then prepared to hear that same voice as God speaks through friends and others. He also helps us recognize the possibility of God's leading through events and circumstances.

    Some parts of this book are nothing new. Williamson makes sure we understand the important role of Scripture in our lives, reminding us it is the best way to hear God. Being in the Word is also essential to becoming familiar with God's voice, still and quiet yet with a glorious nature. His section on meditation is excellent.

    Some parts of his book were surprising to me. I had never thought of brainstorming with God. I never understood the role of curiosity in hearing God. I really like his section on what hearing God means to those in church leadership. He helped clarify living with ambiguity, not knowing for sure if we have heard God. I really liked his distinguishing between formative and summative tests. God uses the former.

    Perhaps you're like me, desiring to hear God's voice yet still hesitant. We've experienced the misuse of God told me... Maybe you've been taught that God speaks only through His written Word now. Williamson has included two Appendixes dealing with these issues.

    We are told that we can have a personal relationship with Christ but are never taught how to have that relationship. This book is a great one for pursuing a conversational relationship with Christ. It is a journey. Williamson shares many of his experiences, even ones where he missed it. He reminds us that growth in hearing God will come from practice and obedience.

    I highly recommend this book to those who desire to hear from God. You'll get great teaching on how that might happen in the ordinary living of life.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    This isn't a book I would normally pick up. I don't read nearly enough non-fiction, and when I do it is an author I have read before, or something I am interested in. Hearing God in conversation isn't a book that would normally grab my attention. However, the author ran onto me in a Facebook group for Christian bloggers and asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing his book. I read the description and figured it was worth reading, so I said yes.

    I have come to realize the ways God speaks to me are varied and numerous. Some are obvious, and others are not. Sam tackles this subject of methods God may use to speak to us, and how better to hear His voice in every day things and events. He gives no magic formulas, but does give some excellent advice on how to listen for God's voice and how to distinguish it from our own desires and the words of others.

    I found the book very interesting, easy to read, and very helpful. Some of the material wasn't new to me, but Sam covered a lot that was new to me, or helped me to see something in a different way than I previously had. One area he covered that I have always been uncomfortable, is the idea of God giving someone a "word" for another person. Although the idea is still not something I am comfortable with, Sam did present it in a way that I don't find it far out as I used to.

    The book ends with a section titled "Answering the arguments", which deals with the arguments from people who don't believe God speaks outside of His Word. I admit I skimmed that part, as I believe God does speak outside of His Word, but it does seem helpful to those questioning that.

    I would recommend this book, it covers something that would do us all good to explore and learn more about.

    In Hearing God In Conversation: How to Walk with God, Samuel Williamson affirms the church's long-held position that God's primary means of speaking to us is through scripture; while at the same time, through a blend of Bible teaching, contemporary and classic Christian authors, and personal experience, shows us that God is in no way limited in terms of what he can use to prompt us, nudge us and lead us. Written in a casual, sometimes lighthearted style, Hearing God in Conversation propels us to a place of expectancy with respect to God's voice; to look for God's personal message to us in a variety of circumstances; and to be aware that God has a vast catalog of means he uses to guide his children.
