Jesus spent thirty years in an alien culture, isolated from affirming words, sometimes wondering if he could finish the work he was sent to do. But three times - when the pressure was heavy - Jesus received life-giving words from the voice of his Father. These words are also for you! You are my child; I love you. You are mine; I have chosen you.I will glorify my name through you.
Praise for A Voice from Home
“Rich Stevenson communicates with depth, power, vitality, and winsomeness the words that Christ the Son heard from his Heavenly Father–words that are also spoken to all of us adopted sons and daughters. Read this book, and you will hear in a profound, life-changing way that voice of delight, descent, and destiny calling you from home.”
–Dr. Stephen A. Seamands, Professor of Christian Doctrine, Asbury Theological Seminary, author of Wounds that Heal, A Conversation with Jesus, and Holiness of Heart and Life
“A strikingly original writer, Rich Stevenson offers us a book as refreshing as water from a high mountain stream. He takes three texts from the Gospels, where our Heavenly Father spoke audibly and directly to Jesus, and shows how these words are meant for us, too. I found this book to be unusually encouraging. Indeed, it brings good news from a far country.”
–Lyle W. Dorsett, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism, Beeson Divinity School
"For those of us who find ourselves alone in the universe, the one thing we long for is a familiar voice, a phone call at the right moment. Rich Stevenson reminds us that we have heard that voice through words God the Father spoke to Jesus. Sit down. Read. Let Rich remind you what that voice sounds like.”
–Michael L. Glenn, senior pastor, Brentwood Baptist Church
“Rich Stevenson has written an engaging and compelling description of how to hear the Heavenly Father’s voice. In a day when so many feel rejected, abandoned, and forsaken, this message from our eternal home will bring hope, joy, and abiding peace. And for those whose lives seem serene and settled, these echoes of the Heavenly Father’s voice will reinforce the truth that He never leaves nor forsakes for He is with us always.”
–David J. Gyertson, Ph.D., Professor of Leadership Formation & Renewal, Regent University, host of the Canadian Edition of The 700 Club.
