Publisher's Description

The best-selling author of Circle Maker, which helped over 2 million people learn to talk to God, now helps readers learn how to listen to God.

The voice that spoke the cosmos into existence is the same voice that parted the Red sea, and made the sun stand still in the midday sky. One day, this voice will make all things new, but it’s also speaking to you now!
 
That voice is God’s voice, and what we’ve learned from Scripture is that He often speaks in a whisper. Not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.
 
Many people have a tough time believing God still speaks. Sure, in ancient times and in mysterious ways, God spoke to His people, but is He still speaking now?
 
Mark Batterson certainly believes so. And he wants to introduce you to the seven love languages of God; each of them unique and entirely divine. Some of them you might suspect but others will surprise you.
 
By learning to tune in to and decipher each language, you’ll be able to hear His guidance in simple as well as life-altering choices. God is actively speaking through: Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, and Pain. Batterson gives you the tools you need to unlock each of these languages.
 
God’s whisper can answer your most burning questions, calm your deepest fears, and fulfill your loftiest dreams.
 
Discover how simple it is to hear God’s voice in every aspect of your life!
 
He’s speaking, make sure you know how to listen!

    In "Whisper," Mark Batterson asserts that God speaks to us in multiple ways but most often in a whisper which could be a feeling, emotion, or circumstance. In the first part of the book, the author describes his own experiences in hearing God speak to him in subtle ways that proved to be providential and supernatural. The second half identifies seven different "love languages" that Batterson suggests as being valid ways that God communicates His will to us. Batterson highlights Scripture as being the primary guide to knowing God's will but suggests that other means such as desires, dreams, and pain can also be genuine opportunities to hear God's voice. Much of the evidence produced is based on his own church planting and life experience along with a wide array of popular and academic sources that support the seven proposed methods. Biblical support lies mainly in Old Testament narratives such as Gideon and his fleece which the author argues is an example of how we can discern God's promptings. In summary, Batterson's views are like many other popular books on the topic of searching out God's will which rely heavily on personal experience and subjective interpretation of the results as evidence of correctly discerning His will.

    Although I agree with Batterson that we need to be attentive to the Spirit's promptings in our lives, I found many parts of the book concerning. Firstly, the usage of biblical texts for support are strained and the interpretative methods used are troubling. For example, in Chapter 2, Batterson references a Jewish book titled The Book of Legends as a viable translation of Psalms 29:4 to support his view that God customizes His voice to fit "the unique strength of each and every person." From a plain reading of the verse in its context with mainstream evangelical translations such as the ESV and NIV, the psalmist is simply adoring the power and majesty found in God alone. There is no obvious connection that one can identify to show that God's strength is apportioned to each person in a unique way as Batterson asserts. Secondly, I find it problematic how the author attempts to gauge whether following a certain sign or prompting as being God's will by pointing to the results as empirical proof. Not only is such an argument illogical but there is also no means by which we can test whether choosing an alternative would have resulted in better or worse results. For example, Batterson suggests that God's whisper moved him to plant his church and its coffeeshop which resulted in soaring attendance numbers. However, how can we objectively determine that opening a coffeeshop is necessarily God's will for Batterson instead of a laundromat or supermarket? Lastly, I find it disturbing that the author does not address the spiritual aspects of seeking God's will. Without a deep spiritual life characterized by holiness and spiritual maturity while being constantly connected to Christ and His Word, there is little chance that we are walking in ways that God desires.

    I would not recommend this book as a reliable resource on finding out what God intends for our lives. I am not denying Batterson's claims that what transpired in his life is God-ordained, but I have reservations about his methods of finding God's will. We must acknowledge that God speaks to us through the internal testimony of the Holy Spirit and the Bible as His written Word. Any other attempt to find God's will outside of these parameters is merely conjecture and must be tested accordingly. All Christians should seek to follow God's will by living Spirit-filled lives that are informed by Scripture so that we grow in spiritual maturity and closeness to God. When we are in sync with God's Spirit and Word, we can be confident that the next steps we will take will be within God's divine will and pleasure.

    I found Whisper so thought provoking I had to read it slow and steady because there is so much information, so much to think about I didn't want to rush through it and not grasp what he was saying. The book has taught me to be still and listen for the whisper. I know we all lead fast paced busy lives and tend to throw out a prayer here and another one there, but do we stop and listen for God to answer, for God to speak to us?

    I don't know if I was actually expecting God to answer, maybe I was just expecting things to happen without any actual conversation.

    The book teaches you the seven different ways you might hear God speak to you - and the reason he speaks in a whisper - to draw you in. He teaches that God speaks to us in Scripture - which is the first, foremost, and what we verify our other conversations with, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, and Pain. And everyone has to find, or really seek for their whispering spot, a place you put yourself to listen for God's whisper. The book outlines and walks you through all these languages. The book draws on examples and stories from scripture, history, and real-life.

    Anyone interested in hearing God speak, anyone seeking a closer relationship, or needing clarification should read this book. There is so much in there that I'm going to have to read it again! But we all must slow down, find quiet, and listen for the whisper.

    I received a copy of Whisper from Waterbrook Multnomah as part of this book launch. I was not required to write a review of the book.

    I took my time reading this one because I ended up highlighting almost every single word. If you have ever wondered what God was trying to say to you, then I suggest listening. Be still and hear His voice whispering in your ear. Sometimes, it may be God is using his Word to speak to you, or through something else. But the main thing I got out of this book was to be still and listen for God to show you what He wants you to hear. The book was so easy to read. Mr. Batterson has a wonderful way of crafting stories in his books that convey the point he is making. I love that. I cannot tell you how awesome this book is. You just have to read it for yourself, and be blessed because you did.

    WHISPER: How to Hear the Voice of God

    I was intrigued by the title and blessed by every word of WHISPER: How to Hear the Voice of God. I have read eleven of Mark Batterson's fifteen books, so I eagerly anticipated the release of his most recent work. WHISPER did not disappoint! Quite simply, Mark Batterson speaks my language. I wish I was as well-read as Batterson because his books are full of information from a wide variety of subjects from history and literature to chemistry and astronomy. Most importantly, Batterson's books are inspired by and supported fully by Scripture. Even though he is highly intelligent and gifted by God, Batterson is a humble story teller who speaks and writes in a conversational tone. He speaks with you rather than preaching at you.

    WHISPER is a great book for anyone who is seeking direction in their life at any age. If you have ever wondered, "if there is a God," or whether you have ever "heard the voice of God," Batterson presents one of the most practical and realistic instructional guides for listening to and building a relationship with our Creator. Starting with practical ways to make Scripture an active part of your life, Batterson illustrates seven methods that God uses to connect with us and speak into our lives.

    As a historian by trade, I truly appreciate Batterson's thorough research and end notes that provide vital reference information. By utilizing a variety of sources to support the Holy Bible as his primary source, Batterson provides an amazing illustration that will speak to new believers and experienced believers in a powerful way. Anyone who reads WHISPER will be challenged and inspired to strengthen their relationship with God.

    Blessed by an advanced reader's copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, I have not been compensated in any way to share my personal opinion.

    Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God, by Mark Batterson, is an essential book for anyone attempting to discern whether or not God is speaking to him. Many wonder if God still speaks to people today, and Mark Batterson answers in this book. He believes that God still speaks, but we need to know how to listen.

    Batterson says in this book that a whisper from God can change ones life in powerful ways. Knowing how to hear God can bring about miracles and bold visions. He strives to make hearing God more natural for believers by introducing seven ways that God speaks to His children. He presents the value of having a whispering spot, a specific place to listen to Gods voice. He asks the question, Do you know how to hear His voice?

    This is a marvelous book. It addresses the questions many have about God speaking to us today. It presents seven ways to hear from God. I found these ideas quite interesting and would recommend this book to anyone trying to hear from God.

    Kara

    I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
