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.

Publisher's Description

We want information; God wants a conversation
We want to know answers; God wants us to know Him

If Christianity is a relationship with God, how many of us would say we have a strong, meaningful connection with him? After all, it's widely accepted that the foundation of any good relationship is communication--and conversation with God often seems to be one-sided at best. We may long to hear his voice, but does God still talk with us today? Should we even expect him to?

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 your own feelings get in the way.

With Williamson's characteristic candor and leavening humor, Hearing God in Conversation bridges the gap between solid biblical theology and practical application. By the end, your eyes and ears will be opened to the limitless ways in which God speaks, and your relationship with him will have a firm foundation.

"I picked it up out of curiosity and I couldn't put it down."--Eugene Peterson

Editorial Reviews

"I picked up your book out of curiosity and couldn’t put it down--I read it straight through. Thank you for writing it!" -- Eugene Peterson, translator of The Message

"Here is a book that needs to be read. It's interesting, relevant, and extremely important." -- George Verwer, founder & president of Operation Mobilisation, author of Out of the Comfort Zone

"Sam Williamson draws on his personal experience and evangelical heritage to offer a book rich with practical wisdom that can help Christians of all traditions learn to hear God in their lives." -- Ralph Martin, host of The Choices We Face

"In Hearing God In Conversation, Samuel Williamson affirms the church's long-held position that God’s primary means of speaking to us is through Scripture; at the same time, through a blend of Bible teaching, contemporary and classic Christian authors, and personal experience, he 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 array of means he uses to guide his children." -- Paul Wilkinson, former writer for Christianity Todays Leadership Journal

“A key longing in every human heart is to connect with God, to actually hear his voice. Sam Williamson has written a remarkable book that teaches both how to hear God's voice in Scripture, and then to hear his voice in every avenue of life. It’s filled with humor, insight, practical tips, and sound theology. I can't recommend a better guide than Hearing God in Conversation.” -- Gary Wilkerson, pastor, president of World Challenge

"If you want to grow in your ability to recognize how God makes himself known to you, I can't recommend a better guide than Samuel Williamson's Hearing God in Conversation. This is not the advice of an expert who has it all figured out, but the humility of a brother still on the journey who recognizes that at best we see in bits and pieces. But that is enough to mark out an amazing adventure with God. You will find the stories from his own life engaging, insightful, and helpful." -- Wayne Jacobsen, pastor, author of He Loves Me

"Hearing God. Is it real? Is it normal? Is it weird? Sam grew up in a Christian family where listening to God was as normal and frequent as conversing with family members around the dinner table. It was simply what a relationship with God looked like for everyone, everyplace, all the time. Sam has done a brilliant job explaining, through Scripture, stories, and personal experiences, how God speaks and how to hear him." -- Gary Barkalow, author, founder of The Noble Heart

"This book is a rare gem full of spiritual wisdom, practical insight, and personal examples of how God converses with us in our daily lives. I was captivated from the first to the last page. Sam Williamson is a great natural storyteller, a sound biblical narrator and armchair theologian, and a wise counsellor with spiritual depth and insight. "He is also an excellent writer--easy to read and joyful to follow. Reading his book is like carrying on an enlightening conversation with an experienced and faith-filled friend while sitting in an easy chair enjoying one another’s company. You can’t savor enough and you want to come back for more and more. "The book is balanced in dealing with potential pitfalls and aberrations. It treats the need for discernment, how to distinguish God’s voice from other voices, how filters and biases can shape and block our ability to hear God’s voice, and the role of community in helping us discern and confirm God's word for us." -- Don Schwager, author of DailyScripture.net

"‘God is always speaking to us, and he wants us to hear him.' In Hearing God in Conversation Sam Williamson gives us some tools to do just that. He does a masterful job in leading us to this end with honesty, insight, and great advice. He writes about deep things with clarity and a disarming humor, helping the reader to explore new territory in hearing God's voice." -- David Mangan, author of God Loves You and Theres Nothing You Can Do About It
