Throughout his time as a Senior Pastor, members of his congregation have asked Pastor David Stine many questions about the Christian faith, but there is one that he continuously hears the most: “How do you make contact with God and hear His voice?”
In Hearing from God, David presents a five-step process designed specifically to help Christians grow in their ability to listen for and better recognize God’s voice. David shares personal stories about how, after applying these steps to his own life, God has specifically answered his prayers and provided clear direction for him. This Scripture-based guide includes a 40-day devotional with carefully chosen Bible passages, questions for reflection, ideas for personal worship, and space for two-way journaling—everything you need to receive God’s message to you.
Hearing from God will transform your ability to hear God’s voice, enrich your relationship with Him, and better understand His will for your life.
"In a culture where there can be many competing "voices" in our lives, the voice that carries the greatest weight can only come from God. God desires relational intimacy with all of us and this can only be cultivated by learning to listen and recognize His voice. David Stine has written a powerful and highly practical book that de-mystifies this process. This is a must-read for everyone!"
"Having had the privilege of knowing David and his wife personally for over 20 years, I can say that David Stine knows what it means to walk with God. His life is an example of someone who seeks the Lord with all of his heart. This book will help resurrect your walk with God as David uses his testimony and experiences to help you hear Gods voice in your life. David is able to make complicated ideas understandable so that we can apply them to our lives. This book will help you to commit to seeking God first and everything else will be added to you.
"There is nothing more elemental to Christian pursuit or more essential to Christian living than hearing the voice of God. With equal parts good theology and good sense, David Stines crack at this age-old question demystifies a cluttered subject and offers refreshing, practical help. With the intellectual honesty of a scientist, the care of a pastor, and the zeal of a man who lives this stuff, he helps us relate to a God who is both mystical and rational."
"This book is not theory; it is the reality of a man who has tested it personally and vocationally, finding it both true and trustworthy. Reading Dr. Davids personal milestone stories will give you hope and help to upgrade your own story of Gods blueprint for your life and ministry. The good news is that the author makes the complicated simple without dumbing down the power and life change of a Word in season in your own life.
Because I have watched this book work itself through the life of the author as my student, ministry staff, and now as an overseer for this esteemed and sought after church planter, I can attest to its truthfulness and fruitfulness. On the other side of this exciting read you will have a hunger and thirst for hearing and obeying our Abba Father, who calls you by name and leads you out into this courageous adventure of trusting His daily voice to you."

Stine reminds us that God wants to communicate with us and that we must put ourselves in position to hear Him. He gives us precise suggestions, examples of how it works from his own life, and forty days of journal pages where we can follow his method and record our responses.
This is by far the best book I have read on hearing from God. I was a bit apprehensive at first. Using the scientific method to hear from God? But I was greatly impressed with what Stine has written. He is clear that hearing from God could never be reduced to an exact science. Using the approach he advocates, however, does give us a means to hear from God more clearly and then apply it to our lives.
Stine has developed a five step method based on the scientific method. It includes determining a time and place to meet with God, being still and worshiping, reading and praying (making observations, asking application questions about growth, obedience, direction, sin, promises, accountability), then listening and writing, and finally sharing and obeying. He includes great examples from his own life how he has used this method and the results that have come from it.
Stine reminds us that it takes time to establish a new habit and it takes time to develop our ability to hear God's voice. He asks for a forty day commitment of thirty minutes a day. He provides the format in the last half of the book, giving forty days of worksheets with Scripture passages and space to journal our responses.
I highly recommend this book. Is there any more important skill for a believer to develop than hearing from God? Stine has done an excellent job of explaining the philosophy of his method, giving examples of how it works, and then providing us with the materials to do it ourselves.
Don't bother with this book, however, if you are not willing to make the commitment for which he asks. Stine reminds us that there is no promise that God will respond to those who seek Him half heartedly.
Food for thought: God's Word has sustenance that provides exactly what we need at the right time and in the right way, but we have to set aside time to seek out His message in order to find it and receive it. (876/3596)
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
